Lyrics

So how come Gretchen Wu isn't listed as a "Featured Personality from Tony's Show"? Huh?


Why did I ever write this show? Just a lark. Who could know?
Now it seems, Littles might be stalking me!

Charlie Ng first mentioned my name, that was sweet – now it’s insane!
Once was nice, but now it’s like stalking me

When I first heard all the jokes I thought that some were clever
Now I wish you all had better things to do!
Seems each jingle has a chance to air
As long it refers to Gretchen Wu!

Right, right, left, right . . . Gretchen Wu
Right, right, left, right . . . Gretchen Wu

This is a twofer situation for me- I laughed out loud when Brad sent this idea to me and then again after Anita's comment. Thank you both!

This is really, really good. I actually wonder if she now often thinks "What did I get myself into with these crazy people?!" It took me 3 listens to get through this because I had to stop the song and restart it twice after I finally stopped laughing at Anita's comment... like minutes later it got me again.

Speaking of bands I did some research on the Wu Tang Clan and I believe Gretchen and Ghostface Killah studied Latin together before drifting apart. Ghostface never forgot her and since he didn't know you could email the show and have messages passed along to long lost friends he instead talked ODB and the guys into naming the band after Gretchen in hopes they could reconnect. Not sure if they ever did.

Great, of course. We should just form a band and call it Wu 2.

The last verse made me laugh out loud. And, uh, no. We don't have anything better to do so suck it up.
