The Lyrics

In 1980, NBC aired what is considered by many to be the worst TV show ever, "Pink Lady and Jeff". It only lasted 5 episodes before it was cancelled.
(Psychedelic beginning)

Turning on my TV set, and
there's a new thing on the air tonight.
I went to watch your show, I know that you
looked allright.
Now, I can understand the lack of your fame,
They call you dorks instead of "Mie" and "Kei"
The lines they gave you and Jeff were lame.
It really showed the day the Nielsen
ratings came.

It said,
They don't watch you anymore, "Pink Lady"
They don't watch you anymore

Going down to school, and they
wonder what I see in that show.
They turn and tell me "Why don't you just stick to
'Tic Tac Dough'?"
They say your show is just total slime,
from the opening titles to "hot tub time".
Your show plodded on painfully,
Until the day the decision came from

They said,
I can't watch you anymore, "Pink Lady"
I can't watch you anymore

One of these days your group of diehard fans are gonna
get our motherlode.
One of these days we'll own DVD's of every
But that day will have to wait for a while,
Right now I'm only a 10-year-old child,
In my 30's things will change,
But for now a "turkey" your show
will remain.

But now
I can't watch you anymore, "Pink Lady"
I can't watch you anymore,
They don't wanna watch you anymore, "Pink Lady"...

(Psychedelic ending)
This parody goes back in time to 1980, when the show first aired. The last verse goes up to the present day and back again. Believe it or not, there is a 3-DVD Set called the "Pink Lady and Jeff Boxed Set", consisting of all 6 episodes that were ever made of this pitiful show (Only 5 episodes aired, making the 6th a "lost episode"). No, I wasn't exactly a big fan of this show either, but I watch the DVD's now to enjoy the "cheese factor" of the show.
