The Lyrics

Take a look
Come and see the shows on air
Take a look
You'll just sit and stare
Show it all
They've gone off the deep end now
Off the wall
I'm forever there

Like a dream, but it's real
Midget clowns with sex appeal
Asking hookers "Are those real?"
Channel two

It's a dream gone astray
Amputees that dance ballet
Nude skydiving every day
You know it's channel two

Channel two

You just gasp
Parents pimping their daughters
You're aghast
Watch that squirrel get maimed
Go berserk
See the postal clerks mate goats
You concede
That you can't turn away

Like a dream, but it's real
See the drag queens shake and squeal
Juggling electric eels
Channel two

It's a dream gone astray
On the cooking show today
Roadkill chefs with skunk souffle
You know it's channel two

Just for you

It's extreme, no surprise, rots your brain
But it seems got your eyes locked in place

You know it's channel two

Live at eight
It's the game they all talk of
Play the game
Play "Let's shave a bear"

That's your wife
On "Who's Chugging the Most Beer?"
It's your life
You now just sit and stare

Like a dream, but it's real
It's so twisted it's surreal
This sure ain't "Let's Make a Deal"
Channel two

It's the truth, can't deny
On at nine it's "Drunk or High?"
Then at ten it's "Gay or Bi?"
It's true

Channel two

Not up to your usual standards Rex. This one wasn't too shabby but it wasn't a rip-roaring laugh like I've come to expect from you. I don't think that you really got into the Artist like you did with other bands you like better. To each one's own, I personally love Metallica so this was an easy and fun round for me.

(Artitrsy) I liked it, reminded me of Peter Gabriel's "Barry Williams Show" in some respects, but funnier (which is an easy feat, given PG's track record for humor!).

Reminded me of that old song by Weird Al called "Cable TV".... Some pretty funny lines, but not a favorite by you.

I believe this takes a good Metallica song, and turns it into such a good parody that it just raised my stanards for parodies. Thanks.

(Artistry) Now that's not the Channel 2 I'm used to (that's ABC!). Not quite up to the Rex standard (which is jaw-droppingly amazing), but still very good. 555 for you, sir!

Um. . .I'm not sure what your channel 2 is, but damn I want that channel, it sounds much more entertaining than the PBS channel 2 here. . .awesome job.

This is one of the best parodies I've seen on this site. That is all.
