Parody Song Title:
"My Lament for Dumbed-Down TV"
Who lives in a gi-ant pineapple?
A pineapple under the sea
A gi-ant aquatic pineapple
SpongeBob Squarepants a-ppar-ent-ly...
Say what? That’s not
A realistic premise to me, can’t be
Oh dear, please hear
My lament for dumbed-down TV
And here’s Swedish Chef from the Muppets
Now what is he cooking today?
Ingredients are giving him trouble
His chicken keeps running away
Can’t look, can’t cook
I can’t learn to cook from this show, oh no
Ho hum, so dumb
Or maybe it’s me I don’t know
When Scooby-Doo chases a monster
It’s always some masked-up bad guy
Whose crime is just being quite scary
You don’t see that on CSI
But hardly a grim felony, really
They seem pretty dumbed-down to me
We all know she’s called Miley Cyrus
Not Hanna Montana, it’s mad
And do all the Simpsons have jaundice?
‘Cause they’re really yellow, that’s bad
Uh-oh, oh no
My friends are all looking at me - weirdly
Now they all say
I think far too much ‘bout TV!
But if I don’t watch all these programmes
How else will I learn about stuff?
Though working them out makes my head hurt
Maybe it’s not dumbed down enough…
My head, wasted
It seems that the problem is me, could be
My bad, so sad
My brain is too dumb for TV!
