The Lyrics

If you've never seen Big Brother (the reality tv show where people of questionable sanity swing wildly between deadly dull and embarrassingly deranged over a period of weeks for the pleasure of the viewing public) ... well, you're a very lucky person. I've spent a great deal of time and effort avoiding watching it myself, but even then it'll still get you, when you least expect it... I'll never get those wasted minutes back, y'know...! Anyway... this is my 'ode' to the viral behemoth that is Big Brother. (Apologies to Billy Joe Armstrong for using his heartfelt eulogy to his father to do this, but it just happened to be the right fit. I'll find some way to do penance, I promise!)
Oh, and here's a link to the OS.
What’s on TV today?
Some half-wits doing sweet F.A…
Wake me up when Big Brother ends…

Bringing fame to av’rage plebs
Or those has-been ex-celebs
Wake me up when Big Brother ends…

Five should’ve been the last
Six was just a joke
They said ‘It’s dead and passed’
But they were blowing smoke

Switched channels, it’s on Five
They beat that zombie back to life
Wake me up when Big Brother ends!

Fake scandals, fake romance
Nonentities in skanky pants
Wake me up when Big Brother ends…

Dumb House Tasks, clichéd lies
Ten quid says that mad chick cries
Wake me up when Big Brother ends…

Those freaks don’t make me smile
That’s just how I feel
I’d prob’ly run a mile
If I met them for real

Z-listers? They’re just here
To C.P.R a dead career
Wake me up when Big Brother ends!

-- (Big instrumental rock-out!!) --

No point in asking why
This stupid programme just won’t die
Wake me up when Big Brother ends

Britain it’s Got Talent, yeah
Those that don’t still need somewhere
There they’ll go, ‘til Big Brother ends
Why oh why, won’t Big Brother end?
Wake me up when Big Brother ends!

Interesting-555! I love Brit comedy shows and am delighted that Ab-Fab is back for its 20th Anniversary (hard to believe)!!! As for your annoyance, over here we've now got your Piers Morgan and Ricky Gervais!!!

I've seen it and most other reality shows *once or twice each*, hate them and think it's like rap, the weeaboo culture or skateboarding- a fad that should have died out long ago. The parody was great, and would make a good recording. 5s.

Thanks for the comments, everyone! Sorry it took so long to reply, fell over some Life and couldn't get up for a bit. All better now though ;^)
