The Lyrics

Sometimes it's fun to watch things played in slow motion. Other times, though, you need the exact opposite...
This movie is terribly paced
Will the plot unfold? No, it's still on hold
Got things to do, don't wanna waste
More time here, locate remote
Fast-forward, speed up like so
Fast-forward, speed up like so

Now I just might not fall asleep tonight
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, watch me
The flow has been vastly improved, that's right
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, watch me
Think I might see the first plot point tonight
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, watch me
No joke, the whole thing's better in this light
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, I won't slow it down

I might've fixed the languid pace
But now I've gone and changed the show
To a diff'rent genre, killed the stakes
Sad drama? No, created jokes
From the new speed, 'fraid it's so
From the new speed, 'fraid it's so

Now I laugh after ev'ry single line
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, watch me
I don't think I have any regrets, mind
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, watch me
I'm fine with changin' up the tone tonight
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, watch me
It's okay, seemed so borin' otherwise
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, it's better this way now

So much fun, I've forgotten why
I chose this film to watch, that's right
Think some popcorn might be nice
The soundtrack kinda slaps now, I just love the vibe
Of juiced-up tripe

I might go watch some more films of this type
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, watch me
They're gold, to damn with real faint praise, that's right
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, watch me
I might not even go to sleep tonight (not tonight)
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, watch me
Must go and fast forward through lots more tripe (tons more tripe)
'Cause I'm watchin' it sped up
Yes, I'm watchin' it sped up, don't wanna slow it down

Fun, vaguely related fact: if you speed up the M*A*S*H theme song, it turns into a salsa.
