The Lyrics

I was inspired to write this parody when it played on one of our Muzak stations at work. I think it turned out pretty darn good.
I saw a girl,
Her name was Velma,
She’s much hotter than The Flintstones’ Wilma,
She’s running around solving mysteries now,
All my life I’ve been searching for you,
How did I survive before reruns of Scooby-Doo?
I TiVo you so I am never without you now,

This is the best thing,
The best thing that could be happening,
Every weekday at 3,
The best thing is that it’s happening on my TV,

I got over her and thought my life was pointless,
‘Till I saw a girl who cured my disappointment,
‘Cuz nothing ever felt as right as it does right now,
I’ll go back to the fourth century,
To meet a woman that I love so dearly,
‘Cuz no one will ever fight as good as Xena now,
‘Cuz when you sliced up those four guys,
And plunged your sword into his back,
I knew that I had to meet you,
As you lovingly slice my calf,

This is the best thing,
The best thing that could be happening,
This channel here is free,
The best thing is that it’s happening,
This is the best thing,
The best thing that could be happening,
On my 60 inch LCD,
The best thing is that it’s happening on my TV,
The best thing is that it’s happening on my TV,

Always knew,
I’d find someone,
But I never dreamt,
It’d be a Brady sis,
‘Cuz you could be a real teen model if you wished,
And I’m tryin’ so hard,
With everything I am,
To make your life as good,
As it looks on TV Land,

This is the best thing,
The best thing that could be happening,
Every night on NBC,
The best thing is that it’s happening on my TV,
(The best thing is that it’s happening on my TV),
The best thing is that it’s happening on my TV,
The best thing,
The best thing that could be happening,
The best thing,
Watching reruns of Grey’s Anatomy,
The best thing is that it’s happening on my TV.
Don't even get me started on Gypsy. Satellite of Love? Yes, please.
