The Lyrics

Got this special offer from our cable company, and now we have like 2,000 channels. What more can a guy ask for?
If I could move my tush
I think I'd pass
Can't think of anything I need
No cigarettes, no sleep, no light, no sound
Nothing to eat, no books to read

Watching my TV
Equipped with Cable and TiVO
What more could I ask?
Showtime, HBO, Playboy On Demand
And sports, without ads, on all the time

Sometimes, all I need is my cable TV
And my TiVo
All I need is my cable TV
Yes and TiVo
All I need is my cable TV...

Comedy Central, A&E and Spike
And sports, lovely sports, on all the time

Sometimes, all I need is my cable TV
And my TiVo
All I need is my cable TV
Yes and TiVo
All I need is my cable TV...

Sometimes, all I need is my cable TV
And my TiVo
All I need is my cable TV
Yes and TiVo
This is turning me into Zombie

I liked it too! It was really good. I only have basic cable, though; I don't have the premiums (don't need 'em). Anyway, 5-5-5 from me.

Dude, This is an Air Supply song. This is not the Hollies, although I can understand that you don't want to admit that you know an Air Supply song well enough to parody.

Gotta come to your rescue MasonR - it IS a Hollies song (altho I can imagine it appealing to Air Supply) - Google it and see, Fact Police :)

Ashkicksass--sooo many cable channels, so few verses! Serafina--the premiums are what kill ya. Joe Melchionne -- Thaaank yeeeeew! Stuart McArthur--I quote The Jerk every time we get a new phone book. Kristof Robertson--Thanks! Fact police--Air Supply?!? Stuart McArthur--Thanks for the backup. Hmmm...maybe I SHOULD parody an Air Supply song...although that would be redundant, wouldn't it?

MasonR - excellent viewing here...much better than anything I've seen on TV in quite a while. I feel fortunate, actually - my Cable service was SO dismal (Comcast on the West Side of Los Angeles) that I finally just up and quit - it didn't work half the time anyway and then they applied the final straw by stiffing me on a Saturday morning appointment. At the end of the call I made to cancel the service the rep asked me if I would like to be contacted about resuming service at some point. I said, "Yeah, you know when Hell Freezes Over? Well, not right then, because I know you folks will all be pretty busy then picking up Winter Wear, but RIGHT AFTER that, OK?". 5's here...
