The Lyrics

Almost everyone has had at least a glimpse of the Jerry Springer Show and noted its obvious grab for ratings by featuring some of the sleezier segments of low society. This song was difficult to parody to the timing of the original song. The idea came to us when we were listeniing to the original and it sounded very much like "You better watch out, Jerry Springer's in Town!"
I remember it was late one night
in the middle of a dream
woke up in a pool of drool
thought I heard a scream
ran over to the TV set
stuck my eyes in for a peek
in black was a man I didn't recognize
showin’ bad guys gettin’ beat
and sluts who would cheat

[Chorus:]
no need to watch it, Jerry Springer’s a clown
no need to watch it, Jerry Springer’s a clown
no need to watch it when his show’s around
don’t turn it on

got the morning paper and the headlines read:
"Springer humps Porn Queen"
Hollywood papers better tighten things up
that son of a B’s obscene
Jerry’s on the TV -just doin’ his job
acting like nothin's new
Paparazzi still lookin’ for him
and he doesn’t disappoint the crew!
what would they do?!

[Repeat chorus]

who's this bum who fell out of the sky?
what's he done and where's he live?
He’s just a jerk who's a sleazy bore and a zero to the kids!
the odd couples fight on the show -they suck!
they do the same each night
and old whores swear at Jerry and they flash their stuff again tonight zzzzzzzzzzzzz
no other place, right?!

[Repeat chorus]

no need to watch it...
