The Lyrics

Oh yes, He's got Great Suspenders, (ooh,ooh)
They hold up his pants, you can tell (ooh,ooh)
Their grip is such, never stretch too much
They handle the job very well

Oh yes, He wears Great Suspenders, (ooh,ooh)
While he interviews on his throne (ooh,ooh)
Some red, some blue..multi-colored, too
She gives them a snap, Sharon Stone..

These straps are his trademark on C-N-N
He's worn them for years, and he'll wear them again..

Oh yes, They are Great Suspenders, (ooh,ooh)
Ex-wives number way over par (ooh,ooh)
Never tries to be, what he's not you see
"Down Homezy" he talks to each Star,
Does not try to stretch things too far..

Larry King, You are what you are...

From the title, it looked like this would be about Steve Urkel and his suspenders, but this was funny enough. Five pairs of suspenders for you!
