The Lyrics

Your standard game show contestants are either of the "happy to be here" type or the "I'm in it to win" sort. Slightly less known is the "where am I and why does my mouth taste like chloroform?" kind. Guess which I'm writing about?
The mu-usic's loud, flashing li-ights in my face
"It's The Lu-uck Show!" Who the hell's this clown?
The-ere's an a-abse-ence in my-y brai-ain
Of how I got here, explai-ai-ain

Someho-ow I-I'm on a ga-ame sho-ow
How a-and why?
Are the-e-ere rules?
Am I mea-eant to work them out o-on the-e-e fly?
So-o-o-omehow I-I'm on a ga-ame sho-ow
I-I'm co-o-o-onfused
I-I do-on't think
Tha-at thi-is guy wants to he-elp in his sparkly-y sui-uit

"Do-o-o all the-ese things to win a car!"
I-I'd rather go back to my qui-i-ie-et ho-ome, plea-ea-ea-ease
Mmm-mmm-mmm, wi-i-ith no huge audience to-o watch
Ge-et covered in suspicious glop, cause I-I ca-an't da-ance, gee-eez

Ho-o-ow'd I-I-I-I ge-e-et on this ga-ame sho-o-o-o-ow?
I-I ca-an't lie-ie
I-I'm no-ot a fan of ga-ame sho-o-o-ows
The-en why-y, please, a-am I-I-I-I-I-I-I he-e-ere? Why?
Shut up, Host, you're a creepy guy
I-I do-on't li-i-ike game shows
Why-y a-am I-I he-e-ere? Why-y?

Gotta wonder what'd happen if the poor guy lost...or not, depending how well you wanna sleep tonight.

It would be kind of scary to wake up and find yourself on "Wheel of Fortune". But just imagine if your were trapped in the Big Brother house.
