The Lyrics:
Charles Nelson Reilly won the Tour de France with two flat tires and a missing chain
He trained a rattlesnake to do his laundry, I'm telling you the man was insane
He could rip out your beating heart, and show it to you before you died
Everyday he'd make the host of Match Game give him a piggyback ride
Yeah, two hour piggyback ride, giddy up Gene
Who They Mention:
Charles Nelson Reilly and long-time Match Game host Gene Rayburn. Reilly was a frequently panelist on the show
