I woke up last night shaking from a dream,
For in that dream I died
My wife rolled over and told me
That my life would be immortalized

Not in some major motion picture
Or great american novel you see
They're gonna make a TV Movie out of me

It's one two three you take the money
It's as easy as A, B, C
They're gonna make a TV Movie out of me

They can change my name or they can leave it
They can change my story too
Or they can make me black or Chinese
And do things that I never did do
They're gonna give my life a whole new ending
And put me in prime time first-run
And when it's over what I did there will be what I done

Now I don't want my name in a history book
Nobody's ever gonna see
They're gonna make a TV Movie out of me

It's one two three you take the money
It's as easy as A, B, C
They're gonna make a TV Movie out of me

Well I'm a shoe-in for a sponsor
Goodyear blimp and radial wheels
Somebody had a meeting somewhere
Somehow somebody made a deal
I was one of them kinds of stories
That everybody liked to see
They're gonna make a TV Movie out of me

Now I don t want no inscription on my grave stone
No long soliloquy
They're gonna make a TV movie out of me

It's one two three you take the money
It's as easy as A, B, C
They're gonna make a TV Movie out of me
