The Lyrics

"Welcome to NBC, where our new slogan is, 'No longer just screwing up prime-time.'" ~Conan O'Brien, soon-to-be ousted host of NBC's "Tonight Show"
Tonight Show a big stall
Ratings took a dive down
Dis-ap-points, ‘xecutives frown
He was a red-haired fruity with bead-y eyes
His points hadn’t grown, so they’ll hang ‘im high
Watch him squirm and die
Out! Bastard’s corny, got no looks, too nerdy
Gotta bring back Leno, eleven thirty
Steeped in stupidity, they have not a clue

How to make the right moves
Gonna make some front page tabloid news
NBC made night moves
In the wintertime, mm-mm
Beat the sweeps; winner time

Conan said no, nuh-uh, don't love it
He's hurt, lurchin', told those guys they can just shove it
NBC, dumb and reckless: chair, board
Shows are all ignored
And they sealed his fate, to escape they would
In the boardroom, he's the fall guy for the network good
They used him, set him free
The devil may care
It's about ratings share

Working out the night moves
Trying to put Jay back in Conan’s shoes
NBC made night moves
And it was bummer time, mm-mm
Beat; dumber times, number times

Co.....nan wonders
Felt the slighting, yeah
When they made the blunder
Pulled rug out from under

I woke last night to the sound of laughter
How long had I sat and slumbered?
Started watching a show on channel twenty-two
It was Conan late late night blues
But three a.m. prob'ly not what he would choose
And he's on Fox, too
With sweeps week closin' in

Mmm-mm, trite moves, mm-m (night moves)
Slight moves (night moves) bleah (night moves)
I'll remember (night moves)
I'll sure remember your spite moves (night moves)
It ain't funny, but I'll remember (night moves)
Funny and I'm-a-getcha (night moves)
I'll remember and I'll getcha in September I'll dismember, (night moves) ooh-oh-oh
(night moves) Been a-jerkin'
Smirkin' and cactus-in' (night moves)
Dorkin' mal-practicin' (night moves)
Oh, for the bite moves, spite moves (night moves)
Oooh, I'll remember, (night moves) yeah, yeah, yeah gonna getcha
(night moves) Ooo, I'll remember
(night moves) Board I'll remember (night moves)
Board, gonna getcha, hoh-oh-hoh
Ooo-ooo-oo, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
Uh huh, uh huh
I'll remember and I'll getcha

Very topical subject and well done on the parody. I never watch any of those guys - it's Stewart and Colbert for me
Jay-Z - January 18, 2010 - Report this comment

Phil Nelson - January 18, 2010 - Report this comment

Tough song to pace, but you did a good job. Leno is a tool.
Andria - January 18, 2010 - Report this comment
I'd like to see Jay Leno put back into place as host of the Tonight Show or at least get his current show back in the old slot, but late-night TV comedy was never the same after Johnny Carson retired. (Yes, I watched Johnny Carson as a kid.) Great parody, and since I can't give you top 10s, you get top 5s.

Great bashing on NBC(Newly Banashed Conan)!!! Conan's new time is 5:55 AM!!!
2Eagle - January 18, 2010 - Report this comment
The Tonight show wasn't the same without Jay.
Jonathan S. - January 18, 2010 - Report this comment
LOL @ Mark
In fact, I think I'll just echo that comment.
AFW - January 18, 2010 - Report this comment
Good recap of the current late show friction
Spoof-Man - January 18, 2010 - Report this comment
I love the top ten..5's from me!
Christie Marie M - January 18, 2010 - Report this comment
I heard that the Jay Leno show wasn't doing any good due to the fact that it's a lot similar to the sketches on Tonight Show. I liked it better when Leno did Tonight show. I stopped watching it ever since his retirement and when Conan took over. I echo all comments above. 5's.

Thanks for all the votes and comments from everyone, glad that you liked it. ;-)

Timmy: Those are definitely better choices for your viewing pleasure.
Jay-Z: Zuck....that you?
Phil: Yep, kinda surprised no one beat me to it.
McKludge: Thanks, Bob Seger has a unique style for sure. Charlie Daniels is a tough one too.
Andria: Thanks, I think Johnny was the best.
Mark: LOL, he's practically on the Today Show then!
2Eagle: I don't really care for Conan either, but I think he's getting a raw deal.
Jonathan S: Is there an echo in here? ;-)
AFW: Praise from you is always welcome, thanks.
Spoof-Man: Thanks, top ten has always been a fave of mine too.
Christie: Thanks, there's that echo again. ;-)
LilCUP: and Conan the ducky, as in lame~quack~
