The Lyrics

The greatest moment in human history.
I always knew,
This show won’t again be viewed!

One night, on “Beat the Clock”,
A dream foretold cheers from a troop that’d unfold,
That lives forever and never grows old,

I always felt,
That my eyes and ears would melt!

One night, on “Beat the Clock”,
Young love would rise,
And light up assistant’s eyes,
Who’ll see this show? Not me...

The dream I had was fulfilling,
Its thrilling appeal,
That elephant had began this,
Oh, it had all been real!

The show destroyed,
Kinescopes treated like toys,
But just remember this talk,
If you hope soon,
This show will again be viewed,
I hope you’ll “Beat the Clock”!

The greatest moment in television/human history, which is now referenced at a single page on the Internet Archive (linked at the bottom of this parody). All known photos and newspaper clippings regarding this broadcast are on the linked page. Never before has the surviving information about this broadcast been organized on a page like this!

It’s been exactly one week since you last made a parody of this broadcast, and I hope I never have to hear about it again. Calling it “the greatest moment in human history” is overstating it and you can get suggestive sometimes in talking about it. All the users of this site know about it now. It’s their choice if they want to tell it to others or not.
