The Lyrics

About the history of Betamax
Beta
Strange and mysterious
Its tape so luminous
Magnets galore

Beta
Silver and black and gold
From Paramount Video
Titles and more

And every night, night, night I watch Beta
Oh, every night, I watch video
And every night, night, night, I buy Betas
Here's to you
Beta, hey
Beta, ho

Beta, Beta
Get some more from MCA
Watch some Repo Man, I say
Ho ho ho ho ho, hey!

Beta, Beta
Pre-U-Matic really sucks
I paid only forty bucks
Ha ha ha ha ha, hey!

Beta, Beta
Please respect Thorn EMI
Terminator, touch the sky
Ho ho ho ho ho, hey!

Beta, Beta
Come and dance the Betamax
Give regards to Mr. X
Ha ha ha ha ha, hey!

Beta
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Ho ho ho ho ho, hey!

Beta (Beta)
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Ha ha ha ha ha

Oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Beta! Beta!

Beta, Beta
Beaten out by VHS
Puts me through a lot of stress
Ho ho ho ho ho, hey!

Beta, Beta
Format war on double dare
Beta yells out, "It's not fair!"
Ha ha ha ha ha

(Beta)

(Beta)

And every night, night, night I watch Beta
Oh, every night, I watch video
And every night, night, night, I buy Betas
Here's to you
Beta, hey
Beta, ho

Beta, Beta
Get some more from MCA
Watch some Repo Man, I say
Ho ho ho ho ho, hey!

Beta, Beta
Pre-U-Matic really sucks
I paid only forty bucks
Ha ha ha ha ha, hey!

Beta, Beta
Please respect Thorn EMI
Terminator, touch the sky
Ho ho ho ho ho, hey!

Beta, Beta
Come and dance the Betamax
Give regards to Mr. X
Ha ha ha ha ha, hey!
