The Lyrics

JESSY LEPPERT: Gene Wood Is My Favorite Game Show Announcer.
I Once Had A Show
Of Should I Say It Once Had Me
He Announced On This Show
Isn't He Good Name Is Gene Wood

Mark Goodson Is Dead
And Gene Retired From Game Shows
So I Looked Around
And Noticed There Wasn't A Foe

I Put On TV, Super Password
Was Coming On
Bert Convy Is On Win, Lose Or Draw
It's Time To Play

He Told Me He Worked
In The Morning And Started To Talk
I Told Him I Didn't
And Bob Eubanks Has To Walk

And Card Sharks Came On CBS
Concentration
With Alex Trebek
Announcer Was Gene Wood

This didn't make much sense to me at all.

I think that's the intended effect - it's a surreal stream-of-consciousness look at vacuous TV game show hosts, and I gave it 555 .... a parody doesn't have to be linear or make logical sense to be good. Good job, Jessy - I like your stuff - I "get it" - it puts a smile on my face!

I am guitiest of surreal poetry, if no one else here is. :) I guess it's just not what i was expecting in a song abou Game Show Personalities.

I remember Gene Wood hosted an obscure game show titled Anything You Can Do in the 70's plus he did the PA for the original Family Feud

I know, he did PA for lots of different shows.

Wait...two days ago marked the second anniversary of his passing???

Actually, I just found out on IMDB.com that GBHD was a week late in announcing Gene's death, so nine days ago marked the second anniversary of his passing.
