The Lyrics

Well my streak of many parodies of the 1951 "Beat the Clock" broadcast had continued, so now here is the first overall parody song of The Harptones.
Beat them and see the scouts, take one (who'd love?)
(Will you take...)
You're getting the elephants
Beat them and see the scouts, take two (hey)

Will you take part in
My life
My love
You're terrific cheesecake!

Beat them and see the scouts
It's what you make it
Always getting the Roxanne
Don't ever take it

World got beating clocs
(Watched) We had watched Beat the Clock

Beat them and see the couts
And I beat the clock
Strange as it seems
All night I see you

I'm trying to watch it
(Watched) Found out our kinescope is lost

I watched you with all my (you-hoo) heart
See Roxanne and all your (you-hoo) charms
I want you to do your (you-hoo) part
Come here (doo-doo) to my (doo-doo) open arms (doo-doop, doo-doop, doo-doop)

Beat them and see the scouts (doo-wha)
And we can see it
We can make our dogs, mhm... (doo-wha)
None to compare with

Will you take part in
That is all 300 scouts (Beat them and see the scouts)

If you’re going to write parodies about this broadcast 5 days a week, you need to also mention George & Germaine Briant, a couple from Louisiana that almost certainly saw this broadcast. But even I have to agree that these parodies should be done in moderation. Try only doing it once or twice a week; as it has been said on this site, the key is not to go overboard.
