The Lyrics

A tale about America's #1 Game Show and its hosts (but mostly its hosts).
His name is Patrick, he is the show host
With a big ol' bulgy forehead and a suit cut down to there
He does the Toss Ups and the Final Spin
And while he tries to be a ham
Friedman stops him, what a sham!

And at his podium, he works from 9 to 4
Because one game can take hours to tape
Who could take some more?

On the Wheel (Wheel!) Wheel Of Fortune (Wheel Of Fortune)
The greatest show at Culver City
On the Wheel (Wheel!) Wheel Of Fortune
You can spin the wheel or solve the puzzle
On the Wheel... you'll fall in love

Her name is Vanna, she wears some diamonds
Patrick escorts her to the board, and sees Vanna clapping there
And when she poses, she does with gusto
But Vanna walks a bit too far
Just to touch a small blue screen
And then the puzzle starts, and play has just begun
There are the Bankrupts and Lose A Turn
But just who'll spin what?

On the Wheel (Wheel!) Wheel Of Fortune (Wheel Of Fortune)
The greatest show at Culver City
On the Wheel (Wheel!) Wheel Of Fortune
You can spin the wheel or solve the puzzle
On the Wheel... you'll fall in love

His name is Patrick, he is the show host
But it was 31 years ago that he started his first show
Now it's a party, but not for Patrick
Still in gray suits he always wears
And some slight gray in his hair
He stands there so relaxed, and bores himself to death
He has his looks and he has his sweet charms
Now he's lost his check

On the Wheel (Wheel!) Wheel Of Fortune (Wheel Of Fortune)
The greatest show at Culver City
On the Wheel (Wheel!) Wheel Of Fortune
You can spin the wheel or solve the puzzle
On the Wheel... don't lose a turn
Don't lose a turn

Now if only all those viewers watched QI instead, some good parodies might filter down to us. Not half bad this, but I would have used a sharper knife.
