The Lyrics

The athletes complete
With each Olympic feat,
Vancouver..
And their target of aims
Is to win at the games
Seein' their names in gold..

Winners brag,
And display their flag,
Vancouver..
On big numbers, they're countin'
In the snow on Grouse mountain
As high drama there unfolds..

Five white rings
With inter-clings..
Brings the twenty-first
Ice speed show,
Proud Apoll-o
Displays his skating burst..

There's never been
More excitement in
Vancouver..
The crowd stays amazed,
Many flags are raised..
Nobody minds the cold,
Vancouver..

Hannah K.
Cuts snow with sway,
Free style downhill run..
Beats the clock,
By a block
Grabs gold when it's done

Makes the day
For the good old USA,
Vancouver..
With his skateboard might,
There's redheaded Shaun White
Performing air flips, so bold..

Ski jumping leaps,
And some great curling sweeps,
Vancouver..
Winning strokes are struck
On an ice hockey puck,
Equal to the stars of old

Five white rings
Of inter-clings
Brings the twenty-first
Sports of test
To show the best,
And sometimes the worst..

So much to see
Right here in B.C.
Vancouver..
When the games are over,
The winners will stand..
Wearing medals, they practiced for
And planned..
We'll be proud happy for them all
Memories we'll recall of,
Vancouver...Vancouver...Vancouver

Olympian in concept and execution! Two bits of trivia - the "Bonanza" theme was written by Livingston and Evans (Silver Bells, Mr. Ed, Mona Lisa, Buttons and Bows, etc.) and Lorne Green (Ben Cartwright) was a Canadian! ;D

Your parody was "Golden"!!!

As Lorne Greene himself would probably say, "Very nice, son. Now take your feet off the table."

Great job, AFW! You win the AmIRight Gold Medal for Olympics parodies, and kudos for not joking about the deceased Georgian luger like whatshisname did earlier this week.

Right now Florida feels as cold as Vancouver. Great parody! Really funny

I liked Shaun White and his flowing red hair. You made good use of that old theme.

Some great Olympic moments already... Looking forward to all of the rest! :D 555 photo ops on the podium

Not *exactly* sure on the pacing, but it's a tough OS, and the idea was so clever (Why didn't anyone else think of it?) -- who cares? 555 from this former ski instructor.

wish ya coulda' worked in Lindsey Vonn, first American woman *ever* to win Olympic gold in the downhill. ... and considering the cold, ya think red White was blue? ;-)

Great take on spoofing the classic "Bonanza" theme. The winter Olympics meets the spaghetti westerns! My fave events are figure skating, speed skating, hockey, skiing, a little of luge. For some reason, I can never get into curling. Most of the athletes in the Olympics are real hot! You just won 555 gold medals with this one!

Signorina Christie, "Bonanza" was shot in the US, on movie studio sets in Los Angeles. My Westerns were shot in Italy, that's how they got that name. But they made a fistful of dollars, and a few dollars more -- even the good ones, the bad ones, and the ugly ones!

Thanks, everyone..for votes and punny comments

Nice. I didn't realize there was singing with the theme, but found one with Lorne Greene singing. Sergio, there's a Bonanza ranch just outside Lake Tahoe that claims filming was done there. Of course, LA or Tahoe, either set was pretty easy filming.
