The Lyrics

Wheel of Fortune contestant sues the show and Pat Sajak after $48,000 win Source:
Threw my back out what a pity,
Won me forty-eight grand and that ain't hay.
Never thought I'd win it, other players weepin',
Vanna turnin' letters after I spin.

Big wheel money earnin',
Big wheel keep on turnin',
Scorin', scorin', scorin' on forever.

Cleaned off all the slates in a whiz,
Chump caused lotsa pain with that jumpin' scene.
Just give me more money, I don't want no pity,
'Til I get more money gonna feel real mean.

Wheel show soon be learnin',
Some big bucks I'll be earnin'.
Filin', filin', filin' legal paper.

May even damaged my liver,
Bet there be a way that I can forgive.
Don't need to say sorry just give me more money,
Just need me enough so in comfort I live.

Big wheel money earnin',
Big wheel keep on turnin',
Scorin', scorin', scorin' on forever.

Big wheel money earnin',
Big wheel keep on turnin',
Scorin', scorin', scorin' on forever.

Adagio and Guy, I am offended by the greed that this song is chirping. The contestants on these shows want to win it all. Why would you write a parody on this subject? Don't you care about offending others with the blantant greed of this parody?

Dear @ - Is there a letter you want to guess or would you like to buy a vowel or maybe solve the puzzle?

We just call 'em like we see 'em.
Adagio - October 20, 2003 - Report this comment was a parody based on a news clipping...:D
