The Lyrics

If you don't have a DVD player yet, maybe this will entice you to get one. If you're still watching movies on BETA... hang your head in shame.
You'd always rent them, back in '92
If were kind, you would rewind them when you're through.
But technology's come up with something new.
Ow-a, Ow-a

Now it's better, and it comes on a CD
The picture's clearer and they call it DVD
And you can skip to any scene you wish to see.
Ow-a, Ow-a

No more cassettes now.
Ow-a, Ow-a

Are you upset now?
That DVD killed the VHS star
DVD killed the VHS star.

The vis-u-al, is no lon-ger sub-par

So now you're stuck with all those crappy videos.
Just like BETA, VHS has got to go.
Di-git-al sales, they start to flow.
Ow-a, Ow-a

You'll find it clearer.
Ow-a, Ow-a

Than your own mirror.

DVD killed the VHS star.
DVD killed the VHS star.

Com-men-tary from the movie stars.

DVD killed the VHS star.
DVD killed the VHS star.

When I'd sit down to watch a flick,
That tracking knob, it made me sick.
I just plug into, the right outlet.
The DVD's, are all pre-setttttttt.

You are a DVD staaaaaaaaaaaar.
You aren't a VHS staaaaaaaaaaaar.
DVD killed the VHS star.
DVD killed the VHS star.
DVD killed the VHS star.
DVD killed the VHS star.

DVD killed the VHS star. (You aren't a VHS star)

I liked it ! Specially "If were kind, you would rewind them when you’re through" ! Goes to show not too many kind people live near me!

Great stuff! I can relate to this as I seem to be the last person I know without a DVD player... Perhaps first line could be "You'd always rent them back in 1992" - would fit the pacing. 454

The switch to DVD is slow, but it's easier to scratch a DVD than it is to ruin a tape. No, wait that's one of the bad things about it. Good job with this one
