The Lyrics

Same thing I did with Plastic Surgeon: Better Second Version, I'm still unhappy with the Dramas/comedy lines, but I can't think of anything to do with it instead, maybe you could help?
Well, I lost my job,
This is where I'll be.
Sitting on the couch,
watching my TV.

There are lots of shows
That are cool and hip.
I'll sit on my butt,
And eat potato chips.

Will and Grace.
(Watching the television)
Lost In Space
(Watching the television)
Melro's Place
(Needing an electrician)
Amazing Grace
(Watching the television)
Will and Grace
(Watching the television)
Amazing Grace
Watch the teley,
Watch the teley, girl.

Well, the comedies,
Really made you laugh.
The dramas though,
Like old photographs.

When Television's out.
What the heck will you do?
Now computers come,
Will you use those too?

Will and Grace.
(Watching the television)
Lost In Space
(Watching the television)
Melro's Place
(Needing an electrician)
Amazing Grace
(Watching the television)
Will and Grace
(Watching the television)
Amazing Grace
Watch the teley,
Watch the teley, girl.
Watch the...
Watch the teley...
Watch the televi-sion...
Watchin' the television.

AHHHHHHHAHH...

(It's Primetime!)
Will and Grace
(Watching the television)
Amazing Grace
(Watching the television)

This version is better than the original parody you posted a while back, but only slightly. I still can't get the chorus to work pacing wise. Perhaps it would work better if it read "Will & Grace (When you're watching television)" or maybe you could change the focus, and make it read "Television for the children", which would also work. Hope those little suggestions help : ) 344

Thanks for the tip. I like the When you're watching television one. It never occured to me maybe I should just change that line completely. But I'm not going to go and post it a third time, at least not for a while.

DKTOS but IMHO this kind of parody subject does benefit from not repeating just a few show names over and over. With thousands of old shows to choose from, surely it must be possible to substitute those lines with varied rhymes.

I guess I should have named a few more, huh?
