T.V. Is King (2001 / Live At The Galaxy Theater, Santa Ana, CA)

The Tubes

I wish I was the man with the mechanical heart
I'd conquer all my enemies alone
I'd tear the guys apart
Then scatter the pieces

I wish I was the man in the soundproof booth
I wish I had a chance to stump the band
Or maybe tell truth
And maybe I could win a color television

I really love my--television
I love to sit by--television
Can't live without my--television

TV is king
You're my everything

I wish I had the girl with the bouncy hair
We'd ride off in a brand new car
Or fly a plane somewhere
Like probably Jamaica

I brush my teeth, shampoo my hair, and shave my face
Apply the necessary aerosol
In the appropriate place
And we'll spend the night together watching television

I can't turn off my--television
Don't really know why--television
I understand my--television

You got your works in a drawer and your color's on track
You have to break away but you always come back
You make a hundred changes but you're always the same
You make me so excited and you make me so lame
You're just a tube full of gas and a box full of tin
But you show me your charms and I want to jump in
Oh if only your chassis was covered with skin
'Cause TV you're my everything

I really love my--television
I love to sit by--television
Can't live without my--television
I can't turn off my--television
Don't really know why--television
I understand my--television
I really love my--television

TV is king
You're my everything
TV is king
