The Lyrics

This is a salute to all those reality shows that are amongst the 'America's Funniest Shots to the Groin' category of TV viewing
He got set
On fire
The flames
Burned higher
When I say,
He learned the hard way

I said,
Please put the matches down,
There's gasoline on the ground,
But what can I say?
He learned the hard why

Tell me why,
He wouldn't listen to me
Tell me why,
His burns are in the third degree
Tell me why,
Now the hospital is where he'll stay
He learned the hard way

She was
A 'blader
A trick
But now
It's too late
'Cause she learned the hard way

Tell me why,
She tried to do a rail slide,
Tell me why,
She landed on the wrong side,
Tell me why,
Her legs are bent the wrong way,
She learned the hard way

You see these people that aren't very smart
They don't live in reality (no)
No matter how stupid,
They give it a try,
Then call 911 Emergency

His backs
On fire
Her legs
Are wired
There are
There are
There are
There are
Stupid people everywhere!

Ain't nothin' but a fracture,
Use a camera to capture
Remind them of it everyday
(Show them everyday)
They learned the hard way

Tell me why,
You thought that you were fireproof
Tell me why,
You rollerbladed off the roof
Tell me why,
You wanna try again today
(What else can I say?)
They learned the hard way

Yeah, they learned the hard way
