The Lyrics

In honor of the upcoming release of the first and second seasons on DVD...
Look at what's back on TV
I can't believe it myself
Frettingly it's playing here on my tube
It should've been utterly shelved

Believe it or not
It's back on the air
I never thought it would annoy me
Retired away no warning to beware
How could it be?
Now who put it back on TV?

Just cause the writers were so lame
Powers that came from the suit
Breaking his fall with the bricks in the wall
Making him wear Mork's old rubber boots

Believe it or not
It's back on the air
I never thought it would pester me
Retired away no warning to beware
How could it be?
Oh, who put it back on TV?

This is too sad to be true
Look at me
Watching it too

Believe it or not
Believe it or not
Believe it or not
Believe it or not

Believe it or not
It's back on the air
I never thought it would capture me
Retired away you know that wasn't fair
What set it free?
I love that it's back on TV

Tim - 'Making him wear Mork's old rubber boots' is soooo WRONG! Funny tho'.
