The Lyrics

The greatest moment in television history (the 1951 “Beat the Clock” show with 300 Boy Scouts) is lost forever.
I always knew,
This show won’t again be viewed,
A rare kinescope lost,
A dream foretold,
All copies destroyed or sold,
It’s lost forever and not aging old,

I always felt,
There weren’t private copies held,
A rare kinescope lost,
The holy prize,
Of lost shows, I realize,
Who’ll see this show? Not me...

The dream I had was fulfilling,
Thought the show was real,
But yet, the kinescope’s missing,
If you knew just how I feel,

Destroyed by hand, lost are the cheers of young fans,
It’s all too much, I can’t talk,
Because it’s true,
This show won’t again be viewed,
A rare kinescope lost!
