The Lyrics

(doorbell) Who is it?
I'm not mommy or your daddy
Not some pastor down the alley
Not a doctor that you'll need
or just Pizza to feed
I'm your newer best friend
Open up, let me in, I'm the cable man
I'm the cable man

I'm a one man machine
Always cool, never mean
HBO, GSN and some ESPN
Cable box, blinking red
Lots of channels in your head
I'm the cable man, I'm the cable man
I'm the cable man

Just don't waste your time
I'm at your own circumstance
A master of package demands
Pay me money for style,
and i'll let you watch a while
it's been an hour past,
How long will your cable last?
I don't know

Got to get cable now
Got to get cable now
Cableman getting cable, now

My van's here, just arrived
And I made it on time
My badge ID and just me
for all clients to see
Gettin' here is my thing
hookin' up is how I sing...
I'm your cableman

Boxes, please
for a generous fee
Make your world what you want it to be
Gotta work for Comcast company
Time Warner can't do it better than me
Satellite can't do something else
Just a worker in spite of myself
I know I can take it
Your cable will just make it
Lord, lord, yeah

Got to get cable, now
Gotta get cable, now
Got to get cable, now

(doorbell) (female voice: Who's there?)

I'm not mommy or your daddy
Not some pastor down the alley
Not some doctor that you'll need
or just Pizza to feed
I'm your newer best friend, open up, let me in
I'm your cable man (4x)
Lord, lord

Great parody of a Curtis Mayfield classic! BTW, I think the original song was used in the Jim Carrey film The Cable Guy.
