The Lyrics

(drum opening)

Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!

And to fix it takes money!
A whole lot of spending money!
It's gonna take plenty of money!
To get it re-wired!

I gotta call Tom!
The TV repairman, Tom!
He's got lots of patience, that Tom!
Mm-hm!
He'll get it
He'll get it
He'll get it
He'll get it
He'll get it
He'll get it
re-wired!

Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!

That time, I knew it's real.
I got me a really good deal.
But that was back in eighty-seven.
And now, my set's no longer revvin'.

Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
(Set, it blew!)
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
(Set, it blew!)

And to fix it takes money!
A whole lot of spending money!
It's gonna take plenty of money!
To get it re-wired!

What's that, you say, Tom?
You say my set's past its time?
Must replace this set of mine?
Mm-hm?
I'll do it
I'll do it
I'll do it
I'll do it
I'll do it
I'll do it
tonight!

(instrumental break)

Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!
Ye gods, my old set, it blew!

That time, I know it's real.
I'll get me a really good deal.
I'll get me some high-definition.
And I'll watch these lovely transmissions.

But it's gonna take money!
A whole lot of spending money!
It's gonna take plenty of money!
To get it installed!

But then I'll take time
to watch resolution's lines!
I'm gonna have patience and time.
Mm-hm.
To watch it
To watch it
To watch it
To watch it
To watch it
To watch it
tonight!

(Set it blew!)
(Set it blew!)

(instrumental break)

(Set it blew!)
(Set it blew!)
(Set it blew!)
(Set it blew!)
(repeat 'til fade)

Hey Mike, a while ago, Bernard's parody got deleted. What happened?
Michael Pacholek - April 08, 2007 - Report this comment
Bernard sent in a parody? And it got deleted? Maybe he put in some offensive lyrics. You know how right-wingers are. Maybe Chucky decided to raise the level of taste on the site. (Not by too much, I hope.) Or maybe Arwen used her magic to make it disappear. She doesn't like him, and with good reason. He doesn't like her either, but then, she's still the bigger person. I don't think I saw it. What was it about?
Dylan Baranski - April 09, 2007 - Report this comment
Indeed he did. It was a parody of Elton John's "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" titled "Mikey Seems to Me, A Charmless Nerd". How can you be inaware of it? You left a few comments on it. Unless, of course, you & him are the same person. In other news: You two (unless Bernard is merely a machination of your own doing) seem to have some awareness of Dschinghis Khan. Are you considering parodying them anytime in the future?

Bernard's parody was removed because it was an attack parody, which is not allowed. Read the submission FAQ.
