The Lyrics

If it keeps on rollin', teevee's goin' to break
If it keeps on rollin', teevee's goin' to break
When the teevee breaks, no need to stay awake

HD teevee, taught me to sleep no more
HD teevee, taught me to sleep no more
Picture's so great, it makes reality seem a bore
Oh well, oh well, oh well

Don't it make you so mad
When you're tryin' to find a station
That don't show Jersey Shore
But they're showin' South Park
And Surreal Life, too
Corey Feldman and Drew Barrymore

Aaaah, aaaah, aaaah
Aaaah, aaaah, aaaah

Readin' won't help you, playin' Monopoly's lame
Now, readin' won't help you, playin' Monopoly's lame
When the teevee breaks, mama, you'll go insane

All last night, I stared at the teevee and cried
All last night, I stared at the teevee and cried
Wiped away my teardrops with my TV Guide, uh huh

Showin', showin' home movies...showin' home movies
Sorry, nothin' else to do
Disneyland...Disneyland-land...Disneyland...Disneyland-land
Disneyland...Disneyland-land...Disneyland...Disneylaaaaaand

Uncle Dan...Uncle Dan-Dan...Uncle Dan...Uncle Dan-Dan
Pop and Gran...Pop and Gran-Gran...Pop and Gran...Pop and Gran, Gran, Gran, Graaaaan
Woo, woo

Porfle, remember the days of rabbit ears, tinfoil reception boosters, and steerable antennas? How about vacuum tube testers at Sears or Wards??? Or RCA cables and top-loading VCRs? Beta anyone ;-D

I do indeed. My family had a nice extra-tall antenna with a motor that rotated it for better reception. And my first VCR (1981) was an RCA top-loader. No special features outside of a pause button, but the picture was so good that I didn't even know what "tracking" meant.
