The Lyrics

Click on the tv
It was unplugged for a while
Was on vacation, see
Now I'll watch shows that make me smile

When it's on, it's on
But I don't know what is on
I look at the guide, it says one thing
Yeah it says it on everything

My cable just says to be announced
And I just wish it would soon be trounced
Threw it on the floor, cable box bounced
Just because it says to be announced

Over and over again
My cable box is not my friend
Try the guide channel
Cable puts its stuff on that

So I can't see what's on
I'll end up watching girls mow lawns
I watch the tv, still anyway
Channel surfing throughout today

My cable just says to be announced
So I think that it will soon be pounced
In my place it always is denounced
Just because it says to be announced

Why turn it on when I can sit outside on the porch
I can wait 'til it loads in
If it doesn't, recycle bin

When it's on, it's on
I'll never know what is on
It's been four hours, should've loaded
And I think the box exploded

My cable just says to be announced
Its inadequateness is pronounced
Oh and yes it will soon be renounced
Just because it says to be announced

My cable just says to be announced
When it has it on it's mispronounced
All the stuff will just stay unannounced
Just because it says to be announced

Just because it says to be announced

"watching girls mow lawns"?? Okaaaaay... ;)

A comedian once commented that men aren't really interested in what's on, they're interested in what *else* is on! :)

Yeah I was stuck for a rhyme at that time and that's all I could think of to write. Yeah, I'm always interested in what else is on. Thanks Fiddlegirl.

Yeah, it does suck when the cable announces "To Be Announced". When we had Comcast, we had that kind of problem, especially with free movies. The same with our Direct TV! What's best about DTV is that it's cheaper, but what's not good about it is you lose satellite signal due to inclement weather. But great write though. There should be more spoofs of this OS! 555.
