The Lyrics

Just because the original is now being used to sell the Olympic$ (ca-ching!)
See, we've been watching TV
Without the ears, But not without a fee
Free, old time TV was free
Not HBO, Sex in the City

Cable and by satellite, it's showing in America
ER, Friends, on Thursday night, they've come into America

Watch...West Wing beats reali-tay,
we'll order Pay Per View today,
Playboy TV from Hef...double double you eff
Watch...don't read books, just know your place
let's all see The Amazing Race
Survivors' torch extinguished, Survivors' torch extinguished

TV's all around the world, it came from America
Remember Uncle Milty Berle, TV rules America
I think this week Drew Carey's live, TV rules America
Star Trek's now on series five, TV rules America

TV rules America
TV rules America
TV rules America
TV rules America


My country in widescreen (TV)
Thank you, HDTV (TV)
Of thee I sing (TV)
Digital sound is king (TV)
