The Lyrics

when i was young, i loved game shows
i figured out...i could make dough
well, i started slow, that much is true
i picked up speed...on radio, i grew

fame

i'm bob eubanks...i'm bob eubanks

years in L.A., is what i spent
the ropes i learned...the beatles, my event
from radio, got a TV spot
which i much preferred...the livelihood, i sought

fame

i'm bob eubanks...i'm bob eubanks

i worked hours...doin' my thing
"newlywed" dude...from that i'd spring
"dream house" was bad...i ain't down
the rose parade's there...when new year's comes 'round

"outrageous moments" came along
i think its square, but ratings prove me wrong
i've banked a little, doin' fine
i've had the thrills a-mountin' as i climbed

fame

i'm bob eubanks...i'm bob eubanks

i've paid dues...i managed bands
i've paid dues...i had big plans
i've paid dues...to reach TV
i've paid dues...for ABC
i've paid dues...but that's alright
i've paid dues...and won the fight
i've paid dues...to earn such dough
i've paid dues...to host game shows

I'M...BOB...EU...BANKS

i'm bob eubanks
i'm bob eubanks
i'm bob eubanks
i'm bob eubanks

Excellent companion piece for my "Happy New Year, Stephanie". It seems that his contract has one more year to go and then he will be replaced as commentator for the Rose parade. Didn't somebody get him confused with Bob Barker?

I don't know who Mr Eubanks is, Al, so I can't votr on this...but I did read it, and it's obviously skilfully written (as are all your parodies)

Couldn't quite place him until I read "newlywed" - a nice blast from the past.

Nice Job, e.e. rhodes. "A-mountin' as I've climbed" is a particularly good sub. I can't think of Bob Eubanks without thinking of that Newlywed Game moment:
Q: Name the most unusual place you've ever made whoopee.
A: In the a**.

I try not to make a practice of pimping my own stuff on others' parodies, but I thought you might appreciate a very similar thing that Robert Lund and I did for Utah weatherman Mark Eubank. Lyrics/audio/video here:

555. Too bad he is usually only seen nowadays doing commentary for parades, and such. Those answers given on the NWG must have made him LHAO back then.
