The Lyrics

Bad time of the year for 10PM shows for a person with no cable - anyone for conventions?
I want my . . . I want my . . . I want my NBC

Now look at them Bozos, that's the way they screw it
Conventioneers are on the NBC
They're just jerking, that's so you can see Mitt
Funny he's strutting on the ABC
Obama lurking, CBS will show it
Let me tell ya, my brain is numb
Maybe get so pissed here as I sit and linger
Baby, get so pissed here, this is dumb

They got a roll call, politics shovin'
Cuss the pitch men, I quiver, please
I cannot groove on these legislators
I only groove on dull and free sleaze

See the little maggot, I am jeering, he's so fake, yup
Yeah, buddy, my show's gone where?
That little maggot, hot to bring some head pain
It's just a drag, oh and it's just not fair

They ought to recall sly depraved slovens
Bust the bitches, you're on your knees
I cannot groove on these legislators
I only groove on dull and free sleaze

I woulda yearned to watch the sitcom
I woulda turned on shows with scums
Hooked on Obama, it's what I'm clickin' for my gramma
Man, watch her puke and run
And it's crap there, what's that?, Hawaii Five-0?
Hanging in the Congo and all for free
Sit there smirking, that's the way to view Mitt
Yet, they're funny for strutting, but I miss TV

I want my . . . I want my . . . I want my ABC
I want my . . . I want my . . . I want my NBC

Thinking of flipping on over to Honey Boo Boo, eh?

Interesting take on political burnout and so true. I remember well back to the days of only three channels - a big newsworthy event happens, and hey! no cartoons!
