The Lyrics

A tribute to the classic TV game show with Gene Rayburn and Charles Nelson Reilly. This would have been a weird episode.
**Gene Rayburn**
Welcome to "Match Game." I'm your host, Gene Rayburn
These people are the panelists; they are:

She's known as Rue MacClanahan----

Charles Nelson Reilly----

Ringo Starr----

And John Lennon---

Match Gamer, Match Gamer,
Make me a match,
Fill in the blank,
Make us all laugh
Match Gamer, Match Gamer
Make up a word
And make all our answers match

Match Gamer, Match Gamer
Fill in the blank
Bob was so dumb
How dumb was he?
He was so dumb, when George asked him for a bite,
Poor George, he --blanked-- the poor man

Gene Rayburn,
Here is my answer

He bit him
My answer doesn't stink

**Rue MacClanahan**
Sorry, Mel
That's not my answer
I said he took the guy to McDonald's

Match Gamer, Match Gamer
Make me a match
Charles Nelson
You are the best
Night after night I'm watching this dumb show
So find me match
Here we go

**Charles Nelson Reilly (Spoken)**
Mel, I can't give you a match answer! I said he took the guy to the zoo

(Audience chuckles)

In order to win, you need at least one

Well, why not?
Why not answer the same as our great contestants? Oh no!
What is your answer, Ringo?

Because I've never heard such a joke before
There's no answer I could write, so I wrote,
"A Hard Day's Night"!

**John Lennon**
Oh, Mel, oh, oh, Mel
Have I made a match for you!
This Bob guy, he bit
the man whose name is George
But it's a good match, a good match, true?

**Paul Lynde**
My answer isn't crappy
I match I give to you
He bit the guy, yeah yeah---
Don't ask me why

**Rip Taylor**
Here is my answer
I sure hope it doesn't bite
It's nothing like yours
But it will bust your side
Bob had kicked him, a good match, right?

**Gene Rayburn**
Jane gets the other question
The points you need are five
Don't get those points, it's over
Oh, what a night!

Have you ever heard of Prince?
Well, he loves to change his name
He was known as the artist, then he went back to Prince
He changed his name to --blank--!

Match Gamer, Match Gamer
Your answers suck
Mine are the best
You're out of luck

Now a commercial
Me must take a break
Now, what must our sponsors say?

--Commercial break--

We're back now
Time for the answers
The points you need are five
If not that
You'll lose in an instant

Someone needs to win this game!

Match Gamer, Match Gamer
Prize us a prize
Listen to Rush
Or Led Zeppelin
Playing with matches
With celebrities
What a great thing
Doom, need no doom
Our answers suck
It's tough to match
That's how we play Match Game, yeaaaaaaahhhhhhh!
