The Lyrics

Of course, Countdown is still running (after more than 20 years, four shows a week). But you need to have your obituaries prepared in advance...
Goodbye Richard Whitely
Farewell, it's been fun
We watched your show nightly
Before "15 to 1"
I'll miss your ridiculous puns
And your silly ties (silly ties)
Will teatime be the same again?

It's the final Countdown...
The final Countdown

And goodbye to Carol (Carol)
The memory remains
Of your frumpish apparel
But mainly your brains
With so many letters you've picked
And sums you worked out (you worked out)
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so.

It's the final Countdown...
[repeat ad lib]

The final Countdown
The very last conundrum
The final Countdown
Is "dwonconut"
The final Countdown
For the people out there with no knowledge of the game, a description can be foundhere
