The Lyrics

Though I had this idea for some time now, I managed to pen it in two days. Originally, the title was "Dropping A Load", with Diarrhea as it's theme. But since I already did a parody dealing with that subject (see Constipated), I decided to try something new...
Well, my name's Michael Walker, yo
Greeting's aside, let's get this show on the road
Now where should I begin, wanna get this right...
How about my tragic story from last night
I bought a couple bags of chips and a Diet Coke
Thought I'd check out this show called Meet my Folks
With the remote in hand, I turn on the T.V.
Hopin' that this show is an ass-kickin' comedy
But seconds later, I'm screamin' "Noooooo!"
Only to find it's a reality show

Now forget 'bout the graveyard, I'll show you real deadheads
Just check out Average Joe and the Newlyweds
Queer Eye for the Straight Guy isn't worth my time
Don't know why I included those homos in this rhyme
I loathe those shows with those tone-deaf singing brats
They sound like a bunch of strangling cats
Can't stand those two dumb blondes on that stupid show Simple Life
Both nearly as brain-dead as Nick Leahey's wife
But whichever way you may see 'em, they're still just hos
They belong on street corners, not reality shows

If the networks had sense, they'd take those shows away
Not like that sh*t's beneficial anyway
All they do is take up valuable time slot space
Like that so-called "comedy" Will & Grace
And forget about that sissy-ass show Survivor
You're better off watching some good ol' MacGyver
And everytime I come across The Amazing Race
I run off screaming like I'm some basket case
If you value your sanity, people, listen close:
You better stay away from reality shows

Reality shows

You really tell it like it is. I also hate those stupid shows about teen age vampires and witches. If you have cable you can still see Perry Mason, M*A*S*H, and The West Wing.
