The Lyrics

I think that Robert Palmer's estate should force ABC to pull their latest gimmick to advertise "Lost." Palmer is spinning in his grave right now at the mere thought of somebody dubbing his voice to change the lyrics to the name of a show that I never watched, and, thanks to this ad, won't ever watch, if I can help it. Here's my answer to the controversial parody.
The Stones are on with "Start Me Up"
And then "Satisfaction"
When they hit commercial break
A classic song is butchered "great"

I can't sleep, I can't eat
Shame on you, ABC
Your ad sure bites, can't believe
Another gim mick's all you need

Whoa, you like to think no one's immune to this show, hoo yeah!
I'd rather watch an island show starring Gilligan, you know
You're gonna have to face, I'm not addicted to "Lost"

I see the ads on ABC
I'm runnin' down to take a pee
I come back, I washed my hands
Another ad for TV's "Lost" is on again

I haven't watched
Nor will I now
I thank you all, get canned in Fall
If Robert Palmer heard
He's spinning in his grave

Whoa, you like to think your parodies are so smart, yeah, yeah
It's closer to the truth to say that weeee've had enough, you know
You're gonna have to face, I'm not addicted to "Lost"

Might as well face, I'm not addicted to "Lost"
There ain't no way I'll be addicted to "Lost"
Might as well face, I'm not addicted to "Lost"
There is no way I'll be addicted to "Lost"
Might as well face, I'm not addicted to "Lost"

(Guitar solo)

"My Name is Earl," a classic show
Shows like that are no more
I laugh hard at Earl's deeds
Give the awards to Jason Lee

Whoa, you like to think no one complains 'bout this (bleep), oh yeah
Won't ever watch this show because the ads are so dumb, you know
You're gonna have to face, I'm not addicted to "Lost"

Might as well face, I'm not addicted to "Lost"
Show's a disgrace, I'm not addicted to "Lost"
I don't wanna see it, not addicted to "Lost"
Might as well face it, I'm addicted to "Earl"
Might as well face, I'm not addicted to "Lost"

(Repeat chorus and fade....)

555, I know I'm not addicted to lost. I am kinda addicted to Viva La Bam.

It seemed that more than half the Super Bowl ads were for ABC-Disney shows or movies meaning no revenue for the network for those ads. Never seen "Lost," but it looks lame, as were most of the SB ads. 5-5-5

5-5-5. The only thing I'm addicted to is fanfiction. Yay for fanfiction and this parody.

I have to agree, the only good Super Bowl commerical this year was the rotating wall with the "MAGIC FRIDGE!"

Never saw Lost, just know that that guy from Becker is in it. But that's not enough for me to watch, 'cause I think it looks like a dumb show. Didn't see that ad, but if I did I'm sure I wouldn't like it. Good parody, 5's

1-1-1 Anyone who claims My Name is Earl is a classic and Lost is dumb is clearly just not worth the breath.

I AM addicted to LOST, and I love it. It's now the best show out on TV. I know that tons of people agree with me, too. It also won best drama for the Golden Globes and the SAGS. Maybe you all should actually try watching it instead of judging something you've never seen before. 1-1-1

1-1-1 I agree! LOST is the best thing has ever happened to tv. Why don't you all rent the first season? What a stupid parody of a fantastic tv show.

LOSTlover - May 28, 2006 - Report this comment
1-1-1 Wow that has to be the dumbest thing ever
Lola L. - May 28, 2006 - Report this comment
All 1's. I agree with Aura. It did win all best dramas. Did "Earl?" I didn't think so. Please don't judge so harshly. Watch LOST! Who loved the season finale! =) I did! (Sawyer is HOT!)

I love LOST, but I still like Chris. And I don't like how they used the song. But I have to dock you on the pacing, however...

LOST is awesome. The original song by robert palmer, and the parody were both awesome to me, but your lyrics suck.
LOSTIE - October 29, 2007 - Report this comment
wow what a waste of your time, do u think your crappy lyrics will stop me from watching Lost. you added a nice chunk that wasn't even paced with the song. One more thing, if Palmer is rolling in his grave because of a million dollar ad, then i think he might be rolling in his grave because some loser trashes his song on a website. You suck, and so does your song. Go to Hell.
