The Lyrics

American Idol
The show can be high dull,
That's why Simon Cowell
Is ready to howl,
And tell 'em they can't...can't sing!

A first winner, Kelly
Looked great on the Telly,
Then made a big movie
That wasn't that groovy,
So maybe she can't...can't sing

They call it reality,
But is it futility,
Searching for wannabe's?

American Idol
There's judge Paula Abdul
To soften up Simon,
Or a Randy quip, "Why,Man?"
You certainly can't...can't sing!

American Idol
Auditions are tidal,
Thousands among us,
And one Wlliam Hungus
Got famous though he...can't sing!

Clay Aiken and Ruben
They're out there Boob Tubin,
Popular artists
Tryin' their hardest,
So maybe some can...can sing..

They call it reality,
But is it futility,
Searching for wannabe's?

American Idol
Ain't gonna' stay idle,
And this January,
New Judys and Jerrys
Will try to prove they...can sing!
