The Lyrics

So as the longest streak of any 1951 "Beat the Clock" broadcast parody about Roxanne, 300 boy scouts and the loud elephant, here is the song all about.the show's assistant.
Hey, Roxanne, oh, Roxanne

Roxanne, if you will
Please send an elephant for me to thrill
A girl who wears scantly costume and smiling
A girl that was on Beat the Clock
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Roxanne, make her fair
A lovely girl who had net stockings
And decided to say Smile, please to everybody
And place them in boy scouts for me
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Venus, the show's assistant that you are
Surely the things I ask
Can't be too great a task

Roxanne, if you do
But boy you're terrific cheesecake!
I'll give her in 1951 to loud elephants
As long as we both shall live
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Roxanne, the show's assistant that you are
Surely the things I ask
Can't be too great a task

Roxanne, if you do
I promise that I always love them
But, smile, please as she take them
As long as we take 300 boy scouts
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Hey, Roxanne, oh, Roxanne
Make my scouts come true
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
Thanks to George & Germaine Britt. The greatest moment in television and human history.

Okay, where do I start...First of all, Doris Robbins (Ben Pollack’s wife) was better. Second, I don’t think we should encourage people to start looking too much into this show’s assistant. I did this and I will never be doing it again. (Blatantly encouraging people to look into this show’s assistant is going to cause a certain reaction in some people.) Lastly, it’s George & Germaine BRIANT, not “Britt”. But at least they saw the show!

Here, I thought this was going to be The Police's "Roxanne" to the tune of Frankie Avalon's "Venus." Maybe somebody else can make that work.
