The TV Blues

What I’d like to see
I said
Is you turn off the TV

But watching it is free
they said
It’s what we like to see

It’s a favor to me
I said
Please turn off the TV

Not even NBC?
they said
It’s what you like to see

You’ll get bent over my knee
I said
If you don’t turn off that damned TV

Then their faces grew quite heavy
and they shuffled off to bed
to learn what it was like to see
something other than that damn TV
