The Lyrics

Isn't it rich, isn't it rare?
Stuff that I see on the tube, no reality there!
Sellin' the clowns
Who did she kiss--why should I care?
I've got more reality now than I can bear
They're TV clowns
Sellin' the clowns

Just when I thought I'd seen it all
Now there's a potential obnoxious, fat son-in-law
Flippin the channels again from my easy chair
Orange County choppers-thank God they're there

If you love farce
you'll get your fill
Watchin' some fat gruesome slob
doesn't give me a thrill
Watchin' the clowns
On TV--they're here

Ain't she a bitch--ain't he a queer?
Frankly I don't give a good damn, sorry my dear
you watch the clowns
Enjoy the clowns
The circus is here

Excellent fare, Royce - sounds like TV over there is much what we get served up here, too :-(

Very good parody, Royce - "reality television" is an oxymoron.

Royce, Clever - well done...Send in the "Five's". Good job, good choice of Original songs, too. Don't see this one very much, if at all.

Reality TV sucks and ITV here rolls in it. As I write it's the time of 'Celebrity Fit Club' and 'I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here', where various hasbeens are seen falling out with each other in a bid to hang on to what's left of their fame. Thank heaven for Amiright and being able to play my CDs and DVDs! Thanks for the parody.
