The Lyrics

A show lost too soon,
It aired across the nation once,
A show lost too soon,
Still feel the inspiration of that thrill,
Kinescope once filmed,
Then thrown off a hill,
That welcomed the moon,

A show lost too soon,
300 in the limelight on
A show lost too soon,
On history’s greatest night filled with love,
I keep thinking of,
What could have been done,
With young hearts in tune!

“So, should we keep a copy?
Of last week’s show;
This kinescope?”
“No! Throw out every copy,
It’s in the past,
Those young cheers won’t last!”

With a show lost too soon,
How patiently I’m waiting for
A show lost too soon,
The kinescope has faded; lost from view,
Wish it wasn’t true,
Not one left or two,
A show lost too soon!
