The Lyrics

AT&T has made a series of commercials for airing during the 2017 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament with Dan Finnerty singing to the tune of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" about being in situations where you could not be watching the tournament. Greg Gumbel is in this ads as well and these ads promote DirecTV's Bracket App allowing you to stream March Madness anywhere. Inspired by these ads, I wrote a parody of the whole Aerosmith song, incorporating the lyrics from each specific ad into them. I have done something like this before, expanding the theme from Ferns "Where Everything Has Stayed the Same" (from Bill Nye the Science Guy) using the full lyrics of the song it parodied, the Cheers theme, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name".
Now the tourney's on
But you're at a business meeting
Every glance you take is fleeting
At each guy you see believe it
You're getting bored real fast
You take out your tablet
So that you can watch some March Madness
'Cause every moment you miss it gets really tragic

You're stuck in Terry's sales review
But there's like a boatload of games on this afternoon
And you don't wanna miss a thing
The chart you see you don't believe
The sales are going down you see
Q3's looking pretty weak

In the chair backstage about to hit the airwaves
You can't help but watch one or two games
In one of them your team is winning
Then you look at her and thank her for her service
'Cause every day she helps you look oh so perfect
You're Mr. Perfect

You're getting primped to go on air
But some kid just drained a 3 forcing overtime
And you don't wanna miss a thing
'Cause looks are everything you know
It's almost time to go on the show
And now she's powdering your shiny head

You don't wanna miss one shot
You don't wanna miss one block
You just wanna catch each game
On DirecTV, that's your wish
You just wanna watch free throws
Some games go to overtime
And watch each game in the tourney
Until the end of time

You're on a date with your girlfriend
And your favorite team just pulled off a hard-fought win
And you don't wanna miss a thing
Your split your time between the games
And your girl to whom you have this to say
Baby you look nice tonight

You're living in this tiny booth
But your team's tied at the half with a mid-major school
And you don't wanna miss a thing
I take a look at the ticket
I notice one thing is up with
I forgot to get this validated

You're at your 10-year high school reunion
You're talking with guys you haven't seen in years
And you don't wanna miss a thing
