The Lyrics

Track 6 of the full album parody of 'Kid A' by Radiohead, saluting great American sitcoms. (Track 5, "Treefingers," is an instrumental which we won't concern ourselves with.)
Screen is filled with cubes and heads
Look here not a tear is shed
They look up and down---and dumb
The big kids and the little ones
Singing in their off-key tones
Weekly problem coming up
A widowed mom and Dad
Matching up, idea rad
Form a family that is a bunch
They will do the best they can
With a one bathroom houseplan
That nutty family is a bunch

Marcia is the hot chick
Greg will move to attic
Jan is unfortunately a frump
Peter cracks his voice up
Cindy is the one in curls
Bobby's just a little worm

Alice tries the best she can
To catch the good eye from Sam
They're just a crazy wild bunch
Mike Brady is the man
Boffs Carol when he can
They're just that wacky Brady Bunch

Ha ha ha! Ha ha ha!

Now Skipper and dumb Gilligan
The Professor and sweet Mary Ann
The star, the wife, the millionaire
Got marooned from their touring ship

And they'll try the best they can
To make it to mainland
Getting there is always tough
You lay the best of plans
But the TV God demands
Sherwood Schwartz ruling the earth
Sherwood Schwartz ruling the earth
Making us all laugh from mirth

555! Hey Porfle, that's the way I feel about Filmation's Saturday Morning live-actions like Shazam-Isis Hour and Ark II.

Yeah, I watched Shazam and Isis. I recently got into Jason of Star Command, too.

I was totally confused at first, then I looked up who Sherwood Schwartz is, and it made SOOO much more sense haha. Very interesting idea that was well done (even though I'm not the biggest Radiohead fan...why they're so popular is another thing lost on me).

Lol, because of the name. But I wasn't familiar with the show so I didn't get the topic but still, good work.

(ABC) Not really LOL-funny as you kinda just summarised the two shows, and I also have no idea who this Sherwood guy is, but other than that this was pretty good. 555 reruns!

Sherwood Schwartz was the TV producer who created Gilligan's Island and The Brady Bunch (among other shows). Like other songs from my Kid A project, it was fun to juxtapoze these specific American institutions onto the vague, unsettling lyrics and music of Radiohead. A small part of me wants to follow up with Amnesiac in a similar vein, since that album was recorded at the same time as Kid A. We will see! ;)

(ABC) Love both shows, and I have so much respect and admiration for Sherwood Schwartz. Good summation of two of his biggest successes.
Matthias - July 03, 2013 - Report this comment
Yeah... I had no idea who it was either. I love Gilligan's Island... Brady Bunch... Meh... Not so much.

All right, so not a Radiohead fan. Had to look up the song and read along -- doesn't look like a fun song to parody, but it fit well. Think my fave line was "Boffs Carol when he can" Very good

Indeed, Claude, much of my Radiohead Kid A/TV sitcoms project is funnier in concept than in execution.
