The Lyrics

A bad use of time, so I turn off the drone
and walk away now; oh how I had to moan.

Waste of what could be useful time.
this is a media crime.

So I depart. . .haste; time waste, I walk away.
It didn’t start strong. . .too long. . .nothing to say.

Waste of what could be useful time—
there’s no reason and no rhyme.

I feel as though hot air they blow.
This isn’t good, what’s on the TV.
A handsome two, but bull they spew,
care not a single f**k for me.

A bad use of time, so I’m gonna get stoned
and toke away now; oh how these two intone!

Waste of otherwise useful time;
neither will save me a dime.

I feel as though jackshit they know.
Each is no good for little old me.
A handsome two, but bull they spew—
it’s worse than pure mendacity.

So I depart. . .haste; time waste, nothing to say.
It didn’t start strong. . .too long. . .please go away!

Waste of otherwise useful time;
this is just media grime.

A bad use of time, so I head for the Rhône
and drink away now; no “Wow!”. . .couple o’ clones.

You actually bothered to turn it on? I think I balanced my checkbook or something equally entertaining...
