The Lyrics

There has been a lot of Internet discussion about "You Can't Do That On Television" over the years, but I've never seen a song parody about it, so I thought I'd rectify that. Enjoy.
Ew, ew, ew, yuck, yuck.

Ready for slimin', I said I don't know
It don't taste like lime and I've got awful timin'
I'm rhymin' 'cause I oughta
Wash myself off with a little bit of...water

As for anyone askin' what is in the burgers
Roadkill chops and whatever Barth murdered
Now he heard it, I leaned over the bench
And I looked right at the floor so I could retch (yecch)

Snake Eyes got a ticket, won't see his seatbelt fasten
Bus rattlin' and some kids he ran across got flattened
The pre-empt of another show
Makes the Sausage Factory grind us up real slow

But you know you've gotta check with the boss
And his name is R-O-S-S, Ross
But you know you've gotta check with the boss
And his name is R-O-S-S, Ross

I love what you can't do
I love what you can't do (on TV)
I love what you can't do
I love what you, I love what you

The classroom got vile so the teacher asked sadly
"Why'd the schoolboard find them, why'd they send them to me?"
So I was copyin' books there, there in detention
Gettin' out was so easy and too shameful to mention

Especially the Capitano
Firing squad aims but they'll never shoot me down, no
So let me just leave this spot
And he'll say "Fire" and down dead he'll be shot (maybe not)

Opposite sketches are the best but they're stretches
'Cause I'm richer, hotter, younger, smarter
And more goody-goody
Than I would be when it's back to reality

So let me take a breath and exhale
'Cause inside a locker I can't breathe so well
Enough to hear the locker jokes that you tell
But it's less congested than Nasti's old jail
Just ask Hodgekins

I love what you can't do
I love what you can't do (on TV)
I love what you can't do
I love what you, I love what you

Hey, Christine, yes, Alasdair
Vanessa, Lisa, Dougie are here
They're on (they're on) your set (your set)
Just as long as they don't get wet (they don't get wet)
Ooh, if I could I would have been on with them...
Ooh...
'Cause I liked it, was excited,
But I can't do that on TV
Baby, ooh!

I love what you can't do
I love what you can't do (blue skies, Barthy burgers)
I love what you can't do
I love what you, I love what you

I love what you can't do
I love what you can't do (on TV)
I love what you can't do
I love what you, I love what you
