The Lyrics

Lost Night in America is this Tuesday night and much of America is in an absolute panic about it. That is because many people have never watched the Lost TV show for fear of not being able to pick up on the storyline midstream, but at the same time they know this is the last season and it is now or never if they want to jump on in as a viewer. "What should I do?!!!" .....With that thought in mind, I have taken up the task of summing up five seasons of shows into a four minute song. After a non-viewer of Lost has finished reading these song lyrics that person will have thorough understanding of the whole Lost story -- it is either that or they will be just as incredibly confused about it as Lost's regular diehard viewers have happily been ever since episode one. PLEASE NOTE: The last section of the original song has purposely not been parodied so there is something to use for when this final season is done.
Wary surgeon, da' Austen babe - well kinda', John is crazed,
a "Terrific!", Walt is special, Boone's a gigolo

Oceanic's bad collision, ABC's the television.
Jin's Korean, Sun's Korean - marriage is so-so

Rose/Bernard - their bond, Littleton - soon a mom,
Sawyer - his zings applied, gonna' getcha' ev'ry time

Island power, da' A-Team, Shannon acts the fool queen
Watch-the-tears-flow, givin'-Arzst-the sayonara, goodbye!

See they all are mired
But they're always learning
As their world keeps turning.
Crap! The raft's on fire.
Jin Kwon didn't light it
But no one was buyin' it.

Gale is stalling, Ana's tough, Alvar, and the Others stuff
Hugo fella' - above the neck a concrete brick block.

Well known rocker stoned, Smokie meanie, Desmond
The plane with Boone falls, Numbers 'round the clock.

Tide's fine - raft's lean, the Swan's got a washing machine
Dave - he mocks it, the bearded man - bit too friendly, more last stands

DHARMA food stays fresh, Tallahassee, guns theft,
Vincent waste, Peyton Place drama at the Hydra

See they all are mired
But they're always learning
As their world keeps turning.
If Sayid has his plyers.
No, Sawyer won't like it
And he'll try to fight it

The Black Rock, paradox, Marvin Candle, Cooper's whacked
Sub nixxed, Aaron cries - change his foul diaper time

Others' clothes from the mall, Tom can't throw a football,
Doc Shephard, Claire, oh my! - children of the same old guy ...Oh, huh, ho

Buddy Holly record, fate: Sayid - Mafia?
Loopty loop - time goes, Hurley scored an H-O

O-6 - the rest stayed, Hoffs Drawlar and Ben's next deed
Keamy - check off "Psycho", Whispers in the jungle!

See they all are mired
But they're always learning
As their world keeps turning.
But things are not so dire
If the jumpsuit's a tight fit
DHARMA tailors can right it.

Second stay - island, danger in the same land,
Jer'my Bentham, sev'nties pop invasion

Wizard of Oz trivia, Mourning Driveshaft-mania
The Chef....seasons....Lucas a smatterin'

Walt's tall, new plane wrecks, Widmore 'n Eloise had sex
Faraday blown away - what else can come by our way?

See they all are mired
But they're always learning
As their world keeps turning.
If you've a bomb to fire
And the drop wont light it
Juliet can strike it

Tough song to parody. Never saw "Lost". I was a "Jericho" fan. Curses on CBS.
