The Lyrics

I've been zoning night and morning
I heard you say "tell him to go to work"
Now I watch cable, and I'm unstable
I'm a couch potato; some would say "jerk"
I won't lie, I know I'm watching smut
I won't cry, and whine that nothin's on
I won't try to get up off my butt
I'd rather veg than ever admit

This is the pits! Where's Jay Leno?
If this's prime time, you better find a good show
This is the pits! I hate this show!
If this's prime time, throw in a video

You've been whining
And I've been dining
I've put on 50 pounds by sittin' around
I'm a couch potato
Now pass the mayo
Hey! I didn't say to turn off the sound
Where's good shows? Like good ol' Archie Bunker?
I don't know--they seldom show reruns
I don't like "Survivor", it was a clunker
Although the women sure had cute buns

This is the pits! Where's Jay Leno?
If this's prime time, you better find a good show
This is the pits! I hate this show!
If this's prime time, throw in a video
