The Lyrics

Ever been frustrated with skyrocketing cable prices? Many people are, especially after assuming that short-term promotions will last. Instead, STPs are always doomed to quickly expire. If you want TV beyond ABC, CBS, NBC, etc., the only affordable choice these days is satellite.
Stanza I.
The cable firms send out their short-term promos,
Seeking out their victims,
Seeking out their victims!
When they are up, cable's bundled with high-speed internet;
This you will soon regret!
Soon you must leave, letting them grieve!

Watch and pay
When you're stuck with cable,
Such as Charter, Comcast or Frontier!
Watch and pay
Till you get Dish Network
So that you can buy steak made from steers!
To cable give your jeers!

Stanza II.
The rates will go up in a weekend twelvefold!
You will soon go bankrupt,
You will soon go bankrupt!
Before too long, let's be switching to good Qwest's satellite!
Now we must do what's right!
Soon we must leave, letting them grieve!


Buy satellite now! (2x)
Stop cable's greed,
Which they call need!

(Repeat Refrain twice)

Watch and pay
Till you get Dish Network
So that you can buy steak made from steers!
To cable give your jeers!
Death to cable! Long live satellite TV! Long live affordable ESPN, CNN, etc.!!!
