The Lyrics

Out here Sally Field
I watch her with meals
I let my backside do the sitting
Don't need Barney Fife
To ruin my life
I just need to be a livin'

Don't try
Don't strain your eyes
It's only TV wasteland

Sally Jesse's mad
Travel Channel's bland
Putt pout on Tiger
Smoking Man and Mulder
The Nestle's Quik and beer
The crap reruns of Cheers
Mets and the weather
See all three rent from Roper

TV wasteland
It's only TV wasteland
TV wasteland
Oh, oh
TV wasteland
Your time wasted!
(c) 2003 M. O'Neill
