The Lyrics

I have watched and LOVED the Svengoolie show for years but I do NOT currently like the direction his program is taking. Therefore, I decided to vent my frustrations: in SONG.
Please Leave The Stunt-Casting To the Professionals...!
TTO: Catch a Falling Star

What's with all the stars appearing in the casket-
Next is, maybe, Kirk's toupee?
Kindly put the shark back into its enclosure;
Fonzie, put the skis away!

What people watch you most for [Land-o-Goshen!]
Is harmless fright;
Sven, this kind of silly cross-promotion
Will just increase your risk of shark bite!

Cool it with the guest stars hiding in the casket-
Gottfried makes my eardrums fray:
Kindly put the shark back into its enclosure;
Fonzie, put the skis away!

The thought of Raytown leaching into Berwyn
Just don't seem right;
Can you expect a lot of help from Kerwyn
If you're both suffering from sharkbite?!?

Cool it with the guest stars hiding in the casket-
Like some sort of failed souffle;
Kindly put the shark back into its enclosure;
Fonzie, put the skis away!

I wrote this 'cause I love your program truly-
It makes my night;
I'd rather have old age do in Svengoolie
Than list the "cause of death" as sharkbite!

Cool it with the guest stars hiding in the casket-
Gimmicks can speed up decay:
Kindly put the shark back into its enclosure;
Fonzie, put the skis away!
I had this on Sven's FB page, but it mysteriously disappeared; hopefully it should stay a little longer here. 10Q!

Not sure what a Svengoolie is, exactly. I do know the role models of my younger days have aged: Fonzie is now selling reverse mortgages and Beaver is touting a treatment for diabetes. The only Raytown I know of is a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri.

Svengoolie is a horror host like my old '70s favorite Bob Wilkins, who smoked a cigar, sat in a director's chair and played horror B movies all night! My mom said he was a bad influence...

I RE-posted this on Sven's FB page; it's still there, but so is a nasty comment from him or his staff. So much for receptivity to criticism...!
