The Lyrics

PS...when you reach the T-T-T-V, it is meant to replace the La, la, la, laa's.
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Thief!

Call the police right now...
I came home, to see an empty house

Hopped in my minivan fast
When a dark black car drove past and
I should've known right then
That he was a crook waiting for me to leave

He tore my house apart
It's hard for me & my TV to part, baby

Some guy ripped off my TV
Some, some, some, guy
Some guy ripped off my TV

Everything is gone, now
But those things I can replace
But my TV, but my TV's
Gone, gone, gone

Can't live without it
It was the one that I loved
Just can't face it, just can't face it
No, no, no, no

My...poor...T...V
Noooo.....

Sometimes I do pretend
Cardboard boxes are my TV
They can't replace the cable I had
And Pay-Per-View

Some guy ripped off my TV
I want it now, get other stuff later
Ripped my house apart
I'll get new things, want my TV, baby

Some guy ripped off my TV
Some, some, some, guy
Some guy ripped off my TV

I want my TV
Don't want other things
I want my TV
Don't want other things
My TV is gone

Do not want other things
I want my TV
Come on - want TV
Want my TV now!

I say:
T-T-T-V,
T-T-T-V,
T-T-T-T-T-T-T-T
TV

(Repeat)

The pacing was off at times, but then again, this song is very hard to pace anyway. Great concept though and very funny...

KyleB - Good one & funny. Pacing was a trifle off so I gave you 4-5-5. I remember this song from the movie "The Breakfast Club".
