The Lyrics

"Dave Clark" refers to the Dave Clark Five, the Beatles' rivals in the early years of the British Invasion. "Sullivan" is The Ed Sullivan Show, a Sunday-night ritual for most Americans back in 1965. And the line about "the other guys in the Temptations" refers to the fact that only one of the Temptations that were around in 1965 is still alive!
Ooh, hoo, hoo
Ooh, hoo, hoo
Carol just hit the wall
She never had it all
One Prozac a day
Her husband's MIA
Her dreams went out the door
In 1984
Only been with one man
What happened to her plan?
She was gonna be an actress
She was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake her butt
On the hood of Elvis's car
Her stupid SUV
Is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
And nothing
Has been
All right
Since the...

Beatles and Dave Clark
Way before Linkin Park
There were Supremes, Temptations
And Sullivan still on my TV
Her grandkids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
And she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1965
1965

She's seen all the classics
She knows every line
Dr. Zhivago, Sound of Music
Even The Great Race too
She rocked out to the Who
Backstreet, she has no clue
Thought she'd get her hand
On a member of the Beach Boys band
Wears a miniskirt made of paper
And who's the other guys in the Temptations?
When did reality become TV?
Whatever happened to
Sitcoms
Game shows
On the radio were...

Beatles and Dave Clark
Way before Linkin Park
There were Supremes, Temptations
And Sullivan still on my TV
Her grandkids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
And she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1965

She hates time
Make it stop
When did Rolling Stones become classic rock?
And when did Elvis become an actor?
Please make it stop
Stop
Stop
And bring back...

Beatles and Dave Clark
Way before Linkin Park
There were Supremes, Temptations
And Sullivan still on my TV
Her grandkids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
And she's still preoccupied
With 1965
