The Lyrics

Listen, Pat
I'll tell you a secret
That will make your ratings soar
And I'll bet it's more effective than making Vanna
dress up like a whore:
When a player can't deduce S-H-blank-T
There's a way to help her solve it easily…

Sometimes, Pat
You need drastic measures
To remain the game show king
Because William Shatner and Howie Mandel
Both are waiting in the wings
When a player's blanking on D-blank-C-K
There's a way to let her solve it anyway…

Sell her a vowel…
Like an 'I' – no -- 'O' and 'E'!
Let her solve that 'Shot' or 'Deck'
(Cause what else would I mean?)
Sell her a vowel
Just to put her mind at ease
Give away Merv's money
And the sponsors will be pleased

Cause now and then,
A player might blank out
On what word 'C-blank-N-T' might represent
But if you let them buy an 'U' -- no -- 'E'!
Then they're sure to find their cash has been well-spent

Listen, Pat
I don't give a shot about you and that Vanna cent
You're a deck, and when I said that,
I think you know just what I really meant
I am giving you these hints just to be nice
And don't give a shot if you take my advice

Sell her a vowel…
Sell her a vowel…
Sell her a vowel…
Sell her a vowel…

What you have is great, but it's less than half the song! I'd tell you about it, but you don't have that kind of time. Wheel is coming on at 7, and then Wapner is coming on at 7:30.

I think it's VERY clever, and lots of fun...I love the OS, and was a Wheel of Fortune junky as a child. =) Also, I could not be more thrilled at your return, Forteen and Baeutiful...it's been TOO long!

This kind of potty-mouthed slander belongs on whatfreaks. This is supposed to be a family websight.

You are not Bankrupt on funny ideas, but you Lose A Turn (alright, 4 pts instead of 5) for doing only part of the song.

Good phrasing, funny lyrics, rhymes where it's supposed to. Good work!

To "Vanna": sorry, but Whatfreaks has gone bye bye. The site no longer exists.
