Ed McMahon, won't you please knock on my door?
I need some money badly; could you get it here by four?
My bank account is overdrawn; my bills are overdue.
So, Mr. Ed McMahon, I'd really like you to come through...
The Vikings showed up on my lawn, and said, "It's time to pay."
But I used up my last card, to pay the others yesterday.
I told them they could take my car; they laughed, said, "That won't do."
So listen, Ed McMahon, I really hope you will come through...
I buy me several tickets. I buy them every day.
Take a shiny penny and I scratch off all the grey.
If I win five dollars, I go and buy five more,
"Cause I'm waiting for your envelope to show up at my door.
So tell me, Ed McMahon, why you've not knocked on my door,
And why I don't see you and Johnny on my TV anymore...
But I still sit here waiting; guess I still believe in you.
So hurry, Ed McMahon, I really need you to come through...
