Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Shall our acquaintances be forgot,
And told to never mind,
If we win 100 million bucks
At half past nine?

At half past nine, my dear,
At half past nine.
They'll draw the winning numbers, dear,
At half past nine.

Shall our coworkers be left out,
And not share the jackpot?
Anyone who buys into a pool
Is just a big crackpot!

At half past nine, my dear,
At half past nine.
They'll draw the winning numbers, dear,
At half past nine.
2004 Michael W. McVey

(ABC3) Not all the numbers matched for a winning ticket, but it was clever.

(ABC3) Ah, this is the original song that people massacre in drunken karaoke every New Year's Eve! I never knew the name until now. I didn't quite get the gist of this one, but it's 1000% better than the original. 555

(ABC3-H) I take it half past nine is the time when the daily TV lotto numbers are drawn - if so, great idea, Mike - 555 (also first parody of this OS I've seen here)

(ABC3H) I struggled with the pacing in a few places, Michael- I'm wondering if you know a different version of the OS to me? Short, but quite sweet. 455
