The Lyrics

After trying to come up with a topic for a Ace of Base song that nobody has tried before, I finally came up with this...
I know that this costs a whole ton
But imagine the crap you might see
“SNL” skits done midgets
And the “Behind the scenes”: KFC

Cable guys may be overpriced
But I’m watching “Scrubs” in Chinese
(Ohhhh, View)
Cable guys gave me “CSI”
Now my nights are blood and gory
I hate, “The King of Queens”
“Yes, Dear” and “The Nanny”
But I’m in love

Days I sit here growing flabby
I found there is no point to go move
“Dreams” are devoted to that “Jeannie”
And, “I Love Lucy” that’s the truth

Cable guys, they are my allies
In the war against normal TV
(Ooooh, View)
Cable guys, should get noble prize
They made my days less boring
Cause I can see repeats
Even more than you see
I love you guys

Cable guys…
I’ve got my beer and TV

(Cable Guys)

Cable guys making me unwise
Watching junk has turned mind to debris
(Ohhhhh, View)
Cable guys made me oversized
Watching you in all of your glory
Cause I can go watch “Wings”
And shows on my TV
I am in love

(Artistry) Lovely concept. Fave line: "I'm watching 'Scrubs' in Chinese".

(Artistry) I feel like your heart wasn't 100% into this one...some great lines, some ok (usually where proper English was sacrificed)

(Artistry) Brilliant! One of your best!

To quote Randy Jackson: it was just okay for me. Pacing was fine, decent concept (although I would rather have seen it be about larry the cable guy) but there was nothing impressive about this that made it stand out.

(Artistry) One of my favorite by you ever. . .you turned a very romantic lovely song into a tribute to the inflated cable bills and the service they provide. One comment "noble prize" should be "Nobel Prize". . .but from one who makes more spelling errors than probably anyone in the site. . .I won't harp on it for the top 5 ratings.
