The Lyrics

This song is a parody and its about the 1991 version of The $100,000 Pyramid.
I was there to match my intellect on national TV
Against a celebrity named Vicki Lawrence-Schultz
I was tense, I was nervous, I guess it just wasn't my night
John Davidson gave the clues
Oh, but I couldn't get the clues right-ight-ight

I lost on The $100,000 Pyramid, baby, ooh
I lost on The $100,000 Pyramid, baby, ooh

Well, I knew I was in trouble now
My hope of winning sank
Oh, 'cause I got the Winners' Circle now
And then my mind went to play
I get the clue of "Things You Jump"
And then the buzzer comes on
Well, I'm givin' up, Johnny Gilbert
Just tell me now what I didn't win, yeah, yeah

I lost on The $100,000 Pyramid, baby, ooh
I lost on The $100,000 Pyramid, baby, ooh

That's right, Johnny - you lost
And let me tell you what you didn't win: a Blu-ray copy of Ratchet & Clank
A free Batman comic book, and Lego Bionicle action figures
But that's not all, you also made yourself look like a jerk in front of millions of people
And you brought shame and disgrace to your celebrities for generations to come
You don't get to come back tomorrow
You don't even get a lousy copy of our home game
You're a complete loser!

Don't know what I was thinkin' of
I guess I just wasn't to bright
Well, I sure hope I do better
Next weekend on Wheel of Fortune-use-une

I lost on The $100,000 Pyramid, baby, ooh
I lost on The $100,000 Pyramid, baby, ooh
I lost on The $100,000 Pyramid, baby
This is an interesting parody song.

Did John Davidson hosted The $100,000 Pyramid back in 1991?

Didn't Johnny Gilbert also announced Jeopardy and Supermarket Sweep too?
