The Lyrics

R.I.P WYCC-TV Channel 20: 1965-2017.
[1st Verse:]
It was a long time having
This station around
Now it is coming to an end
Doesn't last forever

Chicago said goodbye to this fella
A bunch of grueling memories
No more Charlie Rose and PBS Kids
WYCC's gone indefinitiely

[[2nd Verse:]]
Chicago has known
Outside the FCC Spectrum
Donald Trump must've been behind this
Taking funding out of WYCC

[Chorus (first two lines)]
That little fella's gone right now
WYCC's Gone
Oh, oh, oh, indefinitely.

[[New Chorus:]]
We love you so much WYCC
WTTW's grinding up to take your place
You will be remembered in your hearts
About your programming.

You see, is it hard to swallow?
Yes, it's hard to swallow, oh, oh yes
It's so bad, oh, its so bad to see it happen
Tears are coming, right on down my face
Oh god!
It's so painful to my eyes! Oh boy it's gone
Indefinitely, indefinitely

Ohhhhh, ohhhhh, ohhhhh, ohhhhh,
Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhh

Now, here's one thing my Grandpa told me:
"Not all things last forever, understand?"
He said "Expect major changes in life
young man."

Just, just, just, just
Get over various stuff
And move on with it man

Boo, hoo, hoo, hoo
It's so sad that WYCC's gone for a long time

WYCC may you rest in peace
You will always be remembered in our hearts (x2)

I know what you speak of, Chicagoan! Sadly, at best it was the alternative if WTTW wasn't airing what you wanted. But Like they say in the song, you don't know what you got til it's gone.
