The Lyrics

Hate it when your fave shows get the ax? This is an ode to that, and one of my Decathlon parodies.
DONE! What a flop, what a flop, haha!
NO! You're canceled! Move it out!

You don't show 'bout teen topics
So we're gonna drop you
Shortly you'll be off the air
And you'll end up in a slump
Where canceleds are done
Surely you'll be off the air

You know that we'll take ya' (yep, we'll take ya')
Shake and bake ya' (yep, we'll take ya')
Shortly done and off the air
You're boring, we'll take ya' (canceled, take ya')
Overplayed ya' (people hate ya')
You will die, you're off the air!

Yes we know you're show was rough, was not pretty
Ratings didn't go through the roof
Yes your show was crap, it's so sh***y
You're took off the air (off the air)
Teenage kids about only 15
Said that your show isn't no good
So let's get this over with quickly
Dude, your show lacks flair (show lacks flair)

Nobody watched this crap, didn't say it's alright
Come on, just get canceled and get out of my sight
So now I write this spoof here on AmIRight
Shows this horrid truth, I'm so guilty inside!

Crappy shows not worth watchin'
Pinkish slips we're droppin'
Now you're done and we don't care!
Enjoy your overlong slump
A canceled ain't fun
All because you're off the air!

And now that we've took ya' (yep, we took ya')
Overlooked ya' (overlooked ya')
Never shown again, who cares?
The ratings crew hates ya' (yep, they hate ya')
They all blamed ya' (sure, they blamed ya')
Just get out! You're off the air!

What you gonna do, you've no hurry
Reruns getting shown just about every day
Now you're coming back, now we're worried
Gonna smash your face (smash your face)
Now we're scared, this thing was so indie
Now it's coming back for more fun
But if things go wrong, which they will,
You're welcome to the slump (to the slump)

Now people love your quotes, buying your merchandise
I wish you'd get cancelled yet again for the fright
So here's another stanza for AmIRight
Comebacks are the truth, maybe some of the time!

Now you're showing teen topics
Bringing all the bucks in
Why'd we take you off the air (yep we took you off, that's dumb!)
Your channel switched after slump
They can't get enough
Now we want you back, we swear! (We want you back, yep we swear!)

We won't ever take ya' (we won't take ya'!)
Doing great, yeah! (Oh so great, yeah!)
Your success was unaware
So why did we take ya' (why'd we take ya')
Shaked and baked ya' (shaked and baked ya')
You've returned, you're on the air!

Now you (now you) Can go (can go)
To a place (to a place) that people will buy
The D (The D) VDs (VDs) FYE's*, bringing the bucks alright!

We are stoked 'bout your topics
But so sad we dropped ya'
Such a flop just isn't fair!
Now we are in such a slump
A TV-show dump
Crap, we took you off the air!

So now we don't hate ya' (we don't hate ya')
We should play ya' (we should play ya')
You won't let us touch your share
Don't want us to put ya' (we could put ya')
On our channel (back to normal)
Switching hands from off the air!

Hey, DJ Blaze!!! How have you been? I haven't seen you around in ages! I've missed you lots! I hope that you're doing well in school! Well, nice to see you writing again! Oh, and as for programs being off the air, I got bummed when "Whammy", "Carmen Sandiego", "30 Seconds To Fame", "American Inventor", "Ned's Declassified", and "Living With Fran" were off the air awhile back. I even hate it more when they change the schedule of the programs. It gets you thinking why they had to cancel those shows. (Other than the fact that nobody watches them). Well, I'm not much of a TV watcher, except when I watch Nick at Nite late. Now I buy television shows on DVD, such as "Simpsons" and "Married...With Children". FYE rocks, but Barnes and Noble is my haven, though! I expect the Nielsen ratings to be 55.5% and good luck with Decath!

Unique topic...fine job

Nice to see you back, DJ, and I agree with Christie and AFW. I had similar feelings when "Crank Yankers" and "TV Funhouse" (both crude, crass and at times risque programs formerly aired on Comedy Central), "Supermarket Sweep" and "Shop Til You Drop" on Lifetime and PaxTV and "Jail" on MyNetworkTV went off the air within the last 5 years. Shop til you Drop was one of my favorites, if only because of the gloriously tacky 80s-era set and one of the "stores" being called "Andria's Art Mart" (I haven't heard of a real business with my name in its name before or since.) 5s to you, and good luck on the Decathlon.

DJ Blazin' away again, good to see you back. DKTOS but that didn't keep me from enjoying the parody. Good job on a very long song.

Extremely well done and on an epic song to boot!

(Dec3) A fair amount of grammar quibbles, but maybe that's just me. A lot of great lines, and there was a flowing story kinda deal! Not often you see those in TV parodies. 555 for sure!

I liked this, DJ...and it reminded me of some of my favorite shows that got canceled all too quickly. Lipstick Jungle...sniff sniff. Eli Stone...sob. Jericho...awwwwww. I could go on. I won't though...nice job here. =)

Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared, and Arersted Development, all got cancelled too soon. One 5 for each of those, and 3 for this! Great job!

Decent premise/title sub, but this one's a bit of an epic in length that really needed a bit more substance in it..

(SOTY) Extremely mindblowing opener..I love using ad libs like that for hilarious effects. Genius use of "slumps" for "slums." I never want to hear this song again unless I get to read this parody along with it.

SOTY...I'm still mourning some of my favorite shows...and still loving this parody, DJ...=)

Lots of clever rhyme subs for a difficult song. Great job on this one.

Hate it when that happens! I was particularly bummed about "Joan of Arcadia," and retroactively about "Freaks and Geeks". Thank goodness for DVDs! Great parody!

Never heard the OS before this, but your song went with it perfectly! Nice job (and for me, I really miss "The Winner" with Rob Corrdy lol)
