The Lyrics

Every season for 2 weeks or more, the PBS pledge drive offers programs running longer than 2 hours. The break-in parts allows the viewer to call in using his/her credit card to buy some CDs, Books or videos at the levels valued at $25 or more to support their local station. This is why.
I had to watch something on TV
Something came from afar
had to watch A PBS special
about Indy meets NASCAR
when the pledge drive break was in
I used my credit card

Specials from trains going downtown
to a space mission on the moon
And if that wasn't enough
there's always hot air ballons

Memoirs just range from street names to fairs
Doo wop groups sing classic tunes

And this is where the breaks begin
It's where you call, my magic friend

She says: Call now, you fool, don't get screwed
Come on, join the pledge drive
Join the pledge drive

Go from flowers to 1-stroke painting
from the Kids to the Phoenix Suns
We're all in this together
Let's make this public station run
Don't need a fortune teller
to find out where the money belongs
Awnaw

Cause it begins again when the segment ends
and makin' PBS very good friends

She says: Call now, you fool, don't get screwed
Come on, join the pledge drive
Join the pledge drive

Be a Pledge Driver

I take you on a pledge drive
Those items will leave you spellbound
And even, even maybe, we'll do a special on babies

She says: Call now, you fool, don't get screwed
Come on, join the pledge drive
Join the pledge drive
