The Lyrics

I was watching BBC,
On my anologue telly set,
And then a robot comes on TV,
And he says "Have you switched over yet";
I saw a Sky box, but it did not look like a good thing,
And then the robot said "Get one or you'll stop receiving";

I say,
I don't like Virgin, oh no,
I hate it,
I don't like Virgin, oh no,
I hate it;
Can't I keep analogue,
Do I really have to switch,
Can't I keep analouge,
This really is an outrage;

Well I saw a Virgin box in a shop,
It ain't even worth a dollar,
And I think everyone's joking man,
When they it'll be better;
I say I hate it, don't want it, it's costing too much money,
They'll be sorry, they switched it, it is better to keep your analogue,
Even if you can't watch;

I say,
I don't like Freeview, oh no,
I hate it,
I don't like Freeview, oh no,
I hate it;
Can't I keep analogue,
Do I really have to switch,
Can't I keep analouge,
This really is an outrage;

I hurried back home to my TV,
Watched reruns of Blackadder,
And then the robot comes on and says,
"Would you like something better",
He said "I got it, you want it,
For me Sky is the best I bet,
You'll try it, and like,
And you'll be ready on switchover day;

I say,
Don't like Sky boxes, oh no,
I hate them,
Don't like Sky boxes, oh no,
I hate them;
Can't I keep analogue,
Do I really have to switch,
Can't I keep analouge,
This really is an outrage;

I say,
I don't like Virgin, oh no,
I hate it,
I don't like Freeview, oh no,
I hate it,
Don't like Sky boxes, oh no,
Ihate them.
