The Lyrics

I was looking through the TV guide today, saw nothing I really wanted to watch, so I wrote a parody about it instead.
On the TV today
They've got cricket and tennis
And a full replay
From the Premier League

Brad Pitt playing some corpse named Joe
An ABBA special and a fishing show
Lots of things that look interesting
On TV today

Reruns out in full force
Everybody Loves Raymond
And the Simpsons, of course
That show's on every day

Killer ants might make good TV
But that stuff kinda frightens me
That Brad Pitt film I'd like to see
Did I say that out loud?

But these movies tonight
Not sure which I'll be watching
Hear that Heat flick's alright
With De Niro and Al

Wish my TV would multiply
I could watch each one side by side
Don't know how I'll decide
'Tween these movies tonight

Can't keep up this charade
My sarcasm is waning
'Cause I'm finding it hard
To keep interest alive

If you want me to be sincere
I don't know why I'm still sitting here
'Cause it looks like it's all just a bore
On the TV today

Thanks, guys. Everybody seems to parody 'Wall' and 'Dark Side' tracks - thought I'd try something from a different period. Might work on a Division Bell track next.

I love the original and I have days when there's absolutely nothing on for me to watch too. Tuesdays for some reason seem to be hideous!
