The Lyrics

Can you spell this 5-letter word?
I sat myself down with the Pepsi can
With my TiVo remote in hand
Shot from center, tuned it to GSN
It was abot 8 o'clock and a show began
Had to cut a pizza with a knife
When I went to the kitchen and I took a slice, it was Lingo


The show began just a minute past
The gameplay wasn't slow, nor it was fast
5-letters words spelled one at a time
Solving everything from CLUES to CRIME
And then after that, The teams drew their balls
And putting numbers up on a board calls LINGO


A GSN original considered the best
It's most popular from east to west
Chuck Woolery from U.S. was the star
Stacey Hayes comes from across the pond
It's been over 3 seasons of 5-letter fame
Russian Roulette and Friend or Foe can't match the name of Lingo


There's just 2 teams in the ultimate test
And when it's over, who will be the best?
When the game began, the numbered balls came down
And 10 got marked off all over the town
Stacey punches up the 1st letter we see
There is just more to this story of Lingo


The team just scored 25 to none
The drawing of the numbers had just begun
A person drew a ball, marked it on their list
The next person drew again and then came this
And what I did see was a cute red ball
Meaning lose a turn but it's not all in Lingo


The team just won when they ran out of time
The other team just left with a broken smile
The commercials just came on and then
The 2-minute bonus round was about to begin
The team was on a special podium they stood
They scored 6 words, boy they did good on Lingo


The numbers just fell onto the retreat
and 12 numbers were spread all over the street
A number to draw for a trip, and it was shown
A team member gave shoutouts to the folks at home
When the number was up, the audience cheered
They won a trip and cash, and that was the end of Lingo


The show that spreads throught many lands
The people switch to it by remotes or hands
And when it's 8 o'clock, all the people say
Dang, that Lingo made my day
All the other originals, I can't explain
This show has letters, and there's only one name, Lingo

And the moral of this parody is: It's not just letters, it's Lingo!

I thought it was good, except for a few unrhymed lines. But I give it 5's, in honor of the number of letters in the word "lingo" :) .

I think the show is fun to watch. By the way, the show was the inspiration for my pseudonym; a year or so ago a contestant on the show spelled "nally" and lost his turn, cuz' it isn't a real word. At the time I thought it was kinda funny, so I decided to use it as my pseudonym.

I'll bet the person who used to comment as "E-G-E-C-T" also took his name from the TV show.

Shandi? I don't much care for her, mate. Mel is better.

Yes, I rule. But you can't see me on GSN anymore because Play Mania was shelved.
Shandi Finnessy - October 01, 2008 - Report this comment
Ms Pachey, didn't you move on to something else after Playmania got canned?

This parody is great and can be seen on Amiright TV channel 555. Coming up is Dr Music's Parody Report, followed by the ChuckyG Show with special guests Red Ant and Agri.
