The Lyrics

To Ryan Seacrest, Chevy Chase, Pat Sajak, Keenan Ivory Wayans, Magic Johnson and all the other celebrities who tried their hand at talk shows whether daytime or nighttime, this is for you.
When a talk show is cancelled,
There'll be nobody booking guests
The desks are gone and there are no chairs around
Ratings are bad, no one seeing
the soap operas stay on
turn it into classic trash if it stays just down

When a talk show is cancelled
Hosts spend their very last dime
Tryin' to get something to eat
He'd give up all his money
and sleep in the rain
If Rush said, "that's the way it oughta be"

Well, this talk show is cancelled
We gave it 110%
We only gave it a 30
And I had to spent half of the rent

When a talk show is cancelled
The set props are sold
And it can bring such misery
If we had one more retooled
We'll be the first one to go
And we'll be on top for all to see

Yes, when a talk show is cancelled
I know exactly what they feel
'Cause it'll be recycled next wintertime
When a talk show is cancelled
