The Lyrics

Ladies on the tube tonight,
Not buying, not buying!
We got sales resistance up in here,
Not buying, not buying!
Toyota, Toyota....

I never really knew that they could lie like this,
They make many claims so outlandish.
Como se llama? (uh?), Isuzu! (Joe?) Isuzu! (Joe? A liuh, a liuh) Isuzu!
Mercury, Mercury....

They piss me when they sell like that,
They make they viewers so mad!
They don't care, they keep on,
Incessant rounds of commercials!

"Friends" is on tonight,
You know commercials lie,
And I'm starting to feel distraught.
Hardly even see the program,
Three minutes of Rachel, twenty commericals!

Rachel, I can't see your body moving,
And it's driving me crazy.
They didn't show show a single scene of you--
Preempted by commercials!!!

And when you walk through your apartment,
Nobody can ever see the way you move your body, girl.
Commercials ad infinitum -- the way the networks want it,
So we can't see you shaking it.

I never really knew that they could lie like this,
They make many claims so outlandish.
Como se llama? (uh?), Isuzu! (Joe?) Isuzu! (Joe? A liuh, a liuh) Isuzu!
Raisin Bran, Raisin Bran....

They piss me when they sell like that,
They make they viewers so mad!
They don't care, they keep on,
Incessant rounds of commercials!

"Friends" is on tonight,
You know commercials lie,
And I'm starting to feel distraught.
Hardly even see the program,
Three minutes of Rachel, twenty commericals!

Oh I know "Friends" is on tonight,
You know commercials lie,
And I'm starting to feel distraught.
Hardly even see the program,
Three minutes of Rachel, twenty commericals!
Chocula, Booberry....

Oh boy, I can see false advertising,
Exaggerate! Half truths!
I don't, don't really know what they're doing,
They don't think I have a brain.
My will and self restraint
They think will fail now, fail now....
See, I am writing FCC, but they won't do nothing,
They're a bit too hard to persuade.

Now it's the Pepsi generation,
It's the Pepsi generation....

Live in the land of Coca-Cola,
Mr. golf ball picker-upper....

I never really knew that they could lie like this,
They make many claims so outlandish.
Como se llama? (uh?), Isuzu! (Joe?) Isuzu! (Joe? A liuh, a liuh) Isuzu!
Miller Lite, Miller Lite....

Commercials, when they lie like that,
You know I get antagonized.
They don't care, they keep on
Singing their lies on my TV....

Crystal Pepsi, Folger's Coffee,
Yeah, they try to tell me it comes from Colombia!
Good Seasons Salad Dressing, Little Caesar's, Levi's,
MasterCard, worldly, welcome, We are driven!

Yeah, they're so stupid, every man's fantasy --
A program without commercials, even from a 3rd world country!
I think back to the past, quality in entertainment,
TV now makes my head dizzy.
Why does CBS wanna vex us?
ABC and Fox News,
They're obnoxious, it's a music-laden torture!
No more do we watch "Friends"
Commercials run TV 'cause they are all that's on!!!!!

"Friends" is on tonight,
You know commercials lie,
And I'm starting to feel distraught.
Hardly even see the program,
Three minutes of Rachel, twenty commericals!

Oh, you know "Friends" is on tonight,
You know commercials lie,
And I'm starting to feel distraught.
Hardly even see the program,
Three minutes of Rachel, twenty commericals!

Not buying, NOT BUYING!!!!

I hate R&B,but I have to give it up to the people who parody it, because R&B songs are very unknown, as well as having an overwhelming amount of lyrics

(AGES)Decent parody their Michael. . .I have to agree with the amount of lyrics on Matthias on how difficult resulting parodies are. . .I'm really enjoying this comp. . .the talent is coming out the wood-works.

(AGES) Needs to stray a bit further from the original lyrics, but otherwise very well paced and absolutely true.
Cat - February 11, 2007 - Report this comment
(Ages) Too true, as I've attacked commercials (or rather, informercials) myself. Great job, Michael!

I tried to listen to the original song with this, but AOL music isn't cooperating this morning and it probably won't in the near future either. It is an ambitious effort, and from what I remember of the OS it's decently paced but seems sloppy in parts and also gets a bit repetitive. Yeah, I know mine was too...I probably wouldn't have voted for my own entry even if I could.
