The Lyrics

Part of my "United State of Pop" self-challenge. A guy tries to figure out what the hell is wrong with his TV. Yeah. Enjoy!
Uh huh, uh huh (damn, it's buggered)
Uh huh, uh huh (the signal's crap)
Uh huh, uh huh (it's all...fuzzy)
Uh huh, uh huh (oh)

I really don't know
Did it break, wet from the rain, some such wank (eh, eh, eh)
Or did somethin' just explode?
The picture comes and goes, sometimes it's clearer (eh-eh, eh, eh)
Sometimes crapper than ever
Don't know why, it's buggered
That's just great
Not a single station wants to work, it's gratin'
Bullshit, been like this for days
Wait, grain's comin' back (eh, eh, eh)
I thought I did it right (eh-eh, eh, eh)
The hell's wrong with this crap?

Pain in the arse
Might as well watch walls in the dark
Because all I can see-ee
Is black-and-white fuzz sha-ards
Maybe when I restart
For the tenth time, the darn
Thing will work, if not, I swea-ear
I might tear out my hair
Becau-ause

With techno-crap, I'm not that clever
So it's a foolish endeavour
To get it workin', I guess
But, you see, I can't afford a technicia-ian
Don't have a damn clue whatsoever
What the hell is wrong, however
I've got a feelin' it's the antenna
Got a hunch that it's the damn antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, bet it's the damn antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, might be the damn antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, prob'ly the damn antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh-eh

The TV screen
Won't show me a single scene
Could be the technology
Or maybe it's just me
Maybe I should whack it hard
Like I somehow was the Fonz
That might fix the da-arn
Thing or just destroy the pa-a-a-arts
Becau-ause

These tricks I've tried, but I'm no closer
To watching shows on my sofa
I'm almost at my wits end
I need my sixteen hundredth rerun of Frie-iends
I'm still not quite sure what's the matter
Guess I'd better fetch my ladder
See if I can fix the damn antenna
Cause it's quite likely the damn antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, bet it's the damn antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, likely the damn antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, should fix the damn antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh-eh

On the roof with my toolbox
One of these should fix what's wrong
But I can't see
Any antenna-like things up top
Was it stolen, did i-it fall?
Do I not have one at a-all?
Oh god (god)

Goes to show just how I'm not clever
My TV lacks an antenna
How the hell does it work, then?
That'll show me for watchin' shows on the we-eb
Some kinda Bluetooth crap, whatever
Won't be live show watchin' ever
Cause I thought I needed an antenna
Some old fashioned "rabbit-ear" antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, wasn't the damn antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, didn't need an antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, focused on that antenna
Enna, enna, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh-eh

I'm blamin', blamin'
It's me that I'm blamin', blamin'
I'm just dumb as can be
Because, you see
Assumin', stupid
I'd need one, assumin', stupid
Next time, I'll do more researchin'
More re-esearchi-in'
It hurts my brain, that my dumb brain
Forgot to think
Resea-earch, you di-ink
My stupid brain is all to blame

Holy balls, one parody left and my "United State of Pop" self-challenge will be complete! At least until the 2014 mix comes out in a coupla months. But still, huzzah and stuff.

You want aggravation? Wait around all day for the cable guy to install Time Warner or Comsat cable. Then spend the rest of your life dealing with Customer Service robots. You will always depend on the kindness of strangers to allow you to see Kukla, Fran and Ollie and Uncle Miltie. Have you tried adjusting Vertical Hold on your TV?

Liked the theme of old, dead technology with the antennas that used to require those two screws to mount the traditional loop antennas. Better yet was the remote controlled turntable aerial that sat on top of the old console televisions. Remotes used to be tethered! Then came push bar channel buttons and the old twenty channel cube dialed backlit selector panels. Television was so much more of an exercise routine back then.
