The Lyrics

With all these new digital TV channels coming, there is never a shortage of boring programmes!
Hey kid, Whats On Now
Whats On, ooh, Sky News
Hey Kid, VH2, did ya

Hey now, Sky Movies 2
Watch the horror flick in my bedroom
Hey kid, Whats on now, Whats on

And why do we have cable
Which is the way thats able

Still watching on that big screen, MTV
Funkiest vid I've ever seen
See the film on the TV screen, ABC
(ABC)

And why do we watch on here
The way to watch thats clear

Still viewing on that big screen, ATV
Lousiest vid i've ever seen
See them move on the TV screen, ABC
(ABC)

Whats On
Whats On
Whats On

Hey now
Whats On now
Whats On

Whats On
Hey Now
Whats On now
Whats On

Whats On
Hey Now
Whats On now
Whats On

Nice job, reminds me a bit of Weird Al's Couch Potato. Nice choice of OS too, haven't thought of that song in quite awhile.

Thanks Jeff!

Pretty decent job on an OS that gives you NOTHING to work with. Thumbs up & 555

I agree with Jeff and this reminding me of Weird Al's "Couch Potato" or his earlier song, "Cable TV"

to the parody author: great job, altho I found a few minor pacing problems.

to the above commenter: happy birthday (I think I remember from another parody comment thread some years ago)

Great title switch out. I wasn't sure what OS this was but I began to read it anyway and you did such a great job that the tune came to me by the 3rd verse. I then re-read with the tune firmly implanted into my head. And I must agree with Kristof - nothing to work with here but you worked it quite well.

One of your better writes Jason, as has been pointed out it's not the funniest write around, but it paced really well and you made it work for you!
