The Lyrics

Have you ever been annoyed by Barney's disconnection from reality? I know I have. Hopefully this song can sort it out. The OS comes from DS' '82 album Love Over Gold.
It's a mystery to me why it's still showing.
Barney's still on TV--kids aren't growing.
Kids are losing information at rates so alarming.
We have seen humiliation and this isn't very charming.

I just ditched my television; I hate PBS.
I stand for precision and it's for the best.
Baby Bop and BJ, they welcomed Riff so recently.
Let the four fall by the leeway; they don't play so decently.

And what have you got when you turn your tube off?
A hole in your brain and a whooping cough!
The four drink much whiskey, although they're underage.
I just fear for kids who might never turn the page.

Scarred for life across this nation:
Barney's imagination.
Death to Barney!!!

Barney is stupid, this parody is good, and I vote 4 on pacing, 5 for how funny, and 5 overall. I also hope that Barney, Baby Bop, BJ and all their little buddies "go extinct", that is, go off the air for good. If you really want an educational kids' show, check out "Sesame Street", "Mr. Rogers", and "The Electric Company", although some episodes may only be available on video, online or DVD.
