The Lyrics

OK, so how many of the contestants in these game shows actually *want* to be dropped in the slime at the end of the show?
Stop!
No don't drop me in it Game Show Host man
Please! Don't touch that button Mr Host man

Mr. Host Man, can't you see, oh yeah
That the gunge tank ain't the place for me (oh, please)
I don't want look a slimy prat
I didn't want to be on TV like that

I know that I did not wi-i-in
That's no reason to drop me in
Please Mr. Host Man, it would be a crime
To drop me in it, into the slime

I've been standing here answering the questions
So-o-o inaccurately
Though there's no hope, that I'll get better
That's no reason to do THAT to me

Oh, Game Show Host man
Mr. Host Man let me be (oh yeah)
Don't ask the audience - they'll do for me
(No, Game Show Ho-o-o-stman)
I've been hoping, such a long time (oh yeah)
That I will not end up in that slime

Time to say, I've had eno-o-ough
Don't want to bathe in all that stuff
'Cause it looks so yellow and chewy
Hideous and yucky and gooey

Oh, Game Show Host man
Mr. Host Man let me be (oh yeah)
Can I get outta here and walk scot free?
Don't keep me waiting such a long time
To let me sneak out of the back - that's fine

Don't drop me in it, drop me in it, no Mr Host Man
[Drop him in it, drop him in it] No! Mr Host Man
No please don't drop me in it, drop me in it, oh Mr Host Man
Does it have to be me? Here on live TV?

[Drop him in it, drop him in it] No! Mr Host Man
[Drop him in it, drop him in it] Oh, no Mr Game Show Host man
[Drop him in it, drop him in it] Mr Game Show Host Man
It just isn't funny - this suit's an Armani

[Drop him in it, drop him in it] No! Mr Host Man
[Drop him in it, drop him in it] Oh, no Mr Game Show Host man
[Drop him in it, drop him in it] No! Mr Host Man
[Drop him in it, drop him in it]
[Drop him in it, drop him in it]

Very well done, Phil, and I agree with Alvin on the best line.

:-) This one hung around for a while waiting to be finished (OK, so I forgot about it...) - but I knew it had to be finished 'cause of the Armani line. It's my favourite, too :-)

Somehow that fits in with the original song. That may be because it is another whiner begging for something he can't have. 5's
