It's kind of hard in this day and age,
to find something good on TV.
We found television's best kept secret,
On Public Access, Channel 33.

He's just an actor, an extra.
He had an idea, a talk show.
He rates women, the five tiers,
and takes callers, who don't know.

You got a question, he's got an answer,
and a position, on every issue.

Turn on your TV, its time to listen to him ramble on Washington DC,

Won't you come embrace your beloved son?

The Young Turk Show.

Turk and his buddies like to go to bars,
He doesn't like religion and wants to be a movie star,
He had his friends on, they got drunk they couldn't figure out which camera they were filming from.

You got a question. Turn on your TV. The Young Turk Show.
Tier one is a do or date,
Tier two, just do.
Tier three in a social vacuum,
Tier four, fat chance.
Tier five, well I guess you're kind of ugly and you look a little chubby and I wouldn't let touch me if you were the last person on earth.

You got a question. Turn on your TV. Ladies and gentleman. The Young Turk Show.
