Weird Al Yankovic – Cable Tv lyrics

I used to think my life was so empty
I used to think life was passin' me by
Well, I was just about ready
To curl up and die

But then one day I got a visit
From the cable company
Well, they hooked me up and plugged me right in
And now I got cable tv

And now I get to watch the stock report in Korean
Midget wrestling on channel three
It costs me fifty bucks a month just to see 'em
Yeah, but that's all right with me

I got cable tv (Cable tv)
Cable tv (Cable tv)
Oh, eighty-three channels of ecstasy
I love my cable tv, yeah
I love my cable tv

I got the Siamese Faith Healer's Network
The news and weather from Peru
I got celebrity hockey
The Racketball Channel too

Bugs Bunny direct from Atlanta
Mr. Wizard is on at five
I got a satellite dish on the trunk of my car
So I can watch mtv while I drive

I'm talkin' 'bout real quality programs
The kind you just can't get for free
Now I never wanna leave my apartment
'Cause there's just so much for me to see

On my cable tv (Cable tv)
Cable tv(Cable tv)
Well, if you need to find me
You know where I'll be
Watchin' my cable tv, yeah
Watchin' my cable tv

'Cause I love my cable tv, yeah
I love my cable tv

My friends are gettin' kinda worried
They think I'm turning into some kinda freak
Oh, but they're just jealous 'cause I've seen Porky's
Twenty-seven times this week

On my cable tv (Cable tv)
Cable tv (Cable tv)
Yeah, the greatest thing that's ever happened to me
I love my cable tv, yeah
I love my cable tv

Well, I got to have cable tv, yeah
I need my cable tv

Well, I love, I love my cable tv (Tv)
Got to have cable tv (Tv)
Well, I got to have my cable tv, yeah (Tv)
Can't live without my cable tv

Well, I said, got to have some cable tv (Tv)
I've got to have my cable tv
I said cable tv, yeah (Tv)
Got to have cable tv
