The Lyrics

The TV channels in this song are Australian free-to-air channels (as I live in Aussie and don't get Foxtel). Just so you know.
"Coming up on SBS
Brand new South Park, airing back-to-back
The Movie Show and Queer as Folk
Well, they would but the bad thing is
There's nothing in the least
We can do about the thunder
And lightning that keeps blocking
Our broadcast waves"

I sit alone
In my beanbag
To pass the time, I think I'll watch something on Channel Nine

What do I see?
IT CANNOT BE!!!
A bloody cooking show
I need a good old comedy

I flip to Ten
And on the screen
Was some dumb bastard who just failed at 'Idol' - couldn't sing!

I start to scream
I'm in despair!
I need some good TV before I start pulling my hair

NOW!!!

Now some hack
Is leading some git back
To see his new backyard
And he goes "Oh My Gawd!"

What a twit
His pants he starts to shit
You can't say that Greg has never seen the show?

NEXT! NEXT! NEXT!
There's nothing in the least!
Cannot find a good show on TV

What a shame, my laptop's out of range
Being fixed by Mike - could've gone online
But tonight, nothing is going right
Bloody 'Neighbours' is on, why not 'House' this once?

NEXT! NEXT! NEXT!
There's nothing on TV!
Bugger all is being aired tonight

[Guitar solo, played in an ad for a new brand of shoe - heavy metal is the way to get with the youth of today, it seems]

This can't go ong
This is the final straw
Is this some new scheme
Of the executives?
My line is drawn
They must be off their gourd*
Can't believe my eyes
Facking 'Fam'ly Guy'!

NEXT! NEXT! NEXT!
There's nothing on TV!

NEXT! NEXT! NEXT!
There's nothing on for me

I won't come back
I won't return
Until they air some programs
That won't make my brain burn
I'm feeling tired, I've lost my force
When my laptop's back, I'll download my shows, of course
*Colloquialism for being mad/stoned, generally without one's wits.

Pretty good parody, and a friggen fantastic OS to back it up. I love Iron Maiden, this is going to be a fun round!!!

(Artistry) As another NOTB entrant, I can appreciate how hard it was to parody this song. Could have used a few more laughs... I'm afraid I don't get the reference to Greg.

(Artistry) One of my favorite topics. Even with cable it's "200 channels and nothing to watch". Good work.

You seem to have a thing for the 'nothing on TV' theme. . .hey not that I'm complaining though--there isn't here in America either.
