The Lyrics

Folks under the age of 25 might not remember this show, but it was one of my favorites back in the 80s. I think Patty and Selma would be proud! DKTOS? . . . listen here Youtube (you can skip the first minute of synth)
Oh Macgyver!
How I used to watch you on my TV
You were my favorite geek

Made hang glider
From a satellite and a plastic shield (1)
Survival skills were unreal

Always got away
Oh MacGyvaaaaahhhhh, yeah

Stolen diamonds (2)
Made a grapple with garden rake and hose
Well that might work, I suppose
No doubt!
Without a warning
He will rescue the girl in an ultra light (3)
That he just finished last night

He will get away, get away

Contraptions are devised
From whatever he can steal
To trick all the bad guys
Ruining their weapons deal

Go MacGyver
There is nothing that you can’t fix
But you never get the chicks

Run, run
Run now MacGyver
Just 10 seconds left on that big time bomb
How can you remain so calm?

-- rather uninteresting guitar solo --

Oh MacGyver
With a paper clip you hot-wired a car
You were our first nerdy star
Oh! No!
Where’s MacGyver?
There’s no network left that shows his re-runs
I guess I’ll watch SG-1(4)

Watched him everyday, everyday
Now he’s a cliché, a cliché
Oh MacGyver, old Jeep driver
You’re so peachy keen
Go MacGyver!
Go MacGyver!
Monday Night Football came on after you, Oh MacGyver
Oh MacGyvaaaahhhhhhhhh
He could make a grenade in a day
From spare tires and bailing wire
You go MacGyver!

DKTOS, but MacGyver is awesome! I like how he can make some cool devices with seemingly innocuous items.

Don't know MacGyver, but I did have a plan for this OS called "Up the Khyber" (that beautiful bit of rhyming slang)... I ended up doing that to "In the Navy", which seemed more appropriate somehow. But I guess now I know enough about MacGyver now that I don't need to watch the TV series :-)
Loved the "rather uninteresting" guitar solo.
