Sam Hallenbeck – Afternoon TV lyrics
(Verse)
Three O'Clock and the school day's done
Bus drops me off and home I'd run
Sun shines bright but I don't care
Gilligan waits, no time to spare

(Bridge)
Rabbit ears and rotary dial
Are all I'd need for Gilligan's Isle
Some Space Food Sticks and Tang nearby
I loved this stuff, don't ask me why.

(Verse)
Everyday 'tween three and six
Those hours are when I'd get my fix
Of shit TV and Sweet Tart smiles
They'd power my brain for miles and miles
Shows with lawns like astro-turf
Because that's really all they were
Pratfalls, Munsters, Brady Bunch
I loved them, why? I've got a hunch.

(Chorus)
They're my afternoons in TVLand
Spent way more time there then I'd ever planned
Had three channels, maybe four
But I never needed anymore
How I miss those days in TVLand

(Verse)
My days were filled with Acres Green
With Mr. Haneys and BoDeans
Petticoat Junctions, Uncle Joe's
Combat, Andy Griffith Show
Booblas and a hand named Thing
Twilight Zones and Rod Serling
Derwoods, Darrins One and Two
Didn't matter to me, guessing not to you.

(Chorus)
They're my afternoons in TVLand
Spent way more time there then I'd ever planned
Had three channels, maybe four
But I never needed anymore
How I miss those days in TVLand

(Bridge)
Fred Ziffle and Ol' Sam Drucker
I guy with a pig and a cranky ol' fucker
Marlo Thomas, I loved that grin
That wink and that umbrella spin

(Chorus)
They're my afternoons in TVLand
Spent way more time there then I'd ever planned
Had three channels, maybe four
But I never needed anymore
How I miss those days in TVLand
