"I Saw It On TV" lyrics

I Saw It On TV

They sent us home
To watch the show
Comming on the little screen
A man named Ike
Was in the white house
Big black limosine
There were many shows that followed
From hooter to dootyville
Though I saw them all
I can't recall
Which cartoon were real

The coons skin caps
Yankee bats
The hound dog mans big start
The A bomb fears
Annette had ears
I lusted in my heart
A young man from Boston
Said "Sail the new frontier"
And we watched the dream
Dead end in Dallas
They buried innocents that year

I know it's true
Oh, so true
Cause I saw it on TV

We gathered round
To hear the sound
Comming on the little screen
The grief had passed
The old men laughed
And all the girls screamed
Cause four guys from England
Tooks all by the hands
It was time to laugh
Time to sing
Time to join the band

But all too soon
We hit the moon
And covered up the sky
They built the bombs
And aimed their guns
And still I don't know why
The dominoes tumbled
And big business roared
Every night at six
They showed the pictures
And counted up the score

I know it's true
Oh, so true
Cause I saw it on TV

The Old man rocks
Among his dreams
A prisoner of the porch
The light he said
At the end of the tunnel
Was nothing but a burglars torch
And them that was caught in the cover
Are all rich and free
But they chained my mind
To an endless tune
When they took my only son from me

I know it's true
Oh, so true
Cause I saw it on TV

I know it's true
Oh, so true
Cause I saw it on TV
