The Lyrics

I watched a video tape from 1982, It was MTV and all the videos were new, but now they have bad shows and the videos were few,

I watched the countdown and I tried not to blink, its filled with bubblegum music which does stink, you follow the charts and don't care what the fans think,

you became the bad one, I now watch VH1

MTV killed the video star, MTV killed the video star, N'Sync and Brittany Spears are it that there are,

I then watched real world and my eyes they did stick, then Jackass came on next and I laughed at it, what do these shows have to do with music?,

N'Sync's washed up, just like "WASSSUP"

MTV killed the video star, MTV killed the video star, N'Sync and Brittany Spears are it that there are, this is not what is in my car, since the eighties, you have gone too far, I'm best just watching my VCR!!!!!!!!!!!
