The Lyrics

David Chrenko says no one parodies this "period" of pop music. I'm putting to the test. This original single was a breath of fresh air after the demise of disco.
I always miss
My T.V. show
My V.C.R.
Causes me woe
Now I just got
A new gizmo

Won't miss again
We got TIVO!
We'll get it all
My favorite show
No crappy tapes
Watch the promo
A big hard drive
T-I-V-O

My Will and Grace
My Friend and Trek
The new Survivor
Won't miss a speck
I'll get it all
We got TIVO
Won't miss again
T-I-V-O

God made fans
But he used the T.V. to do it
Couch potato plan
And we're all here to prove it
We can watch with a tape
Gawk at a tape
See what a V.C.R. do
God made fans
So we sit around and view

We must record
We got TIVO
We must record
We got TIVO
We must record
We got TIVO
We must record
We got TIVO
LET'S WATCH OUR SHOW!
Go ahead. Make my day.

Your parody-panache is obviously NOT "De-Evolving", sir. Well done as always!

This is the way i would have written the parody had i thought of it first. (which in no way diminishes my stealing Yes and ELP out from under you --;p). Good work as always Rick! 555
