The Lyrics

I don't want it
But I got it
All the ads for that
Ads they bore me
And bore through me
Now it's time to act
Most of those products, no doubt,
Will put a huge dent
In checking accounts

Get TV remote or a TiVo
It's muting time!
Lower that voice, reduce the noise
It's quiet now

Absolutely, ads annoy me
Throw me off my track
Gizmos--ahem! Now erase them
While I get a snack
I have suffered enough
Of Mad. Avenue's bluff
And now I have won

Get TV remote or a TiVo
It's muting time!
No more stinkin' ploys to buy more toys
We skip them now

No more drug ad bloat, Geico Gecko
Or Intel chime
No more urgent voice, freedom from choice
It's what I want
Mac or PC? Coke or Pepsi?
Just move along.

Sir Agree, Best lines " Coke or Pepsi " I have abstained from TV since the 90's, when they cancelled by favorite show, ~MoonLighting~ ! TV or TIVO are no temptation for me, Sir.
