The Lyrics

It's just like television
There's a tube of every kind
Pretty girls and boys in a screen
Walking a fine thin tube
Shaking hands and bussing things
Licking their lips like they could deal
Me alive in a couple of weeks
Yea just like television

It deals with laughing
Chomping a tale
Slapping scripts and making fun
About the fags in the laugh
Radio boss dipping his laugh in a little white packet
You put it out son and we'll all back it
Yea it's just like television

And the mechanical set is building up
But we're ready for the screen
And we don't need a sign like telecommunications
In the beak of a small screen
We're not as dumb as we might look
You can't keep us in the dark
With me and you it's two by two just like television

These four walls have seen
The TV and the antenna
From classic to modern
I've seen western and sitcoms
Cocky young tubes and little families
Flashing screen, shaking them hips
Trying to hook it up for the late night shift
Here in television

[repeat chorus]

And we wrote it as we saw it from the centre of the tubes
All access to the liars who claim they wrote a script
But for every tiny screen there's a man that's had its day
The truth is never quite the same as what the papers say

[repeat chorus]
