The Lyrics

too fun to not enjoy

i got all ninety-six stations and it gives me a woody
(surf T.V....all night long)
you know the channels all vary...some are moldy...some are goodies
(surf T.V....all night long)
well, i sit on my fat seat...with remote control
and it just suits me...to let pictures roll

and i'm gonna surf T.V....i'll be up past one
you know i'm gonna surf T.V...flippin' through is fun
yeah, i'm gonna surf T.V...till the dial's been spun
you know i'm gonna surf T.V...start with channel one, now
too fun to not enjoy

you know i never shut the set off, cause there's always something goin'
(surf T.V....all night long)
you know i'm veggin' out, surfin', like a couch potato growin'
(surf T.V....all night long)
well, if they bother runnin', then i'm sure gonna try
but if horrid to view, i will whisk on by

and i'm gonna surf T.V....i'll be up past one
you know i'm gonna surf T.V...flippin' through is fun
yeah, i'm gonna surf T.V...till the dial's been spun
you know i'm gonna surf T.V...start with channel one, now
too fun to not enjoy

and if my T.V. breaks down, i'll watch the one on the bedroom
(surf T.V....all night long)
and if that picture goes black, there's still the one in the restroom
(surf T.V....all night long)
and when i get to surf T.V....its just out of this world
i'm checkin' out the programs as they all unfurl

and i'm gonna surf T.V....i'll be up past one
you know i'm gonna surf T.V...flippin' through is fun
yeah, i'm gonna surf T.V...till the dial's been spun
you know i'm gonna surf T.V...start with channel one, now
too fun to not spin....too fun to not en...joy
ooh ooh....ooh ooh...ooh ooh...ooh ooh

And everybody's sayin' that the man of the hour
Is that Alvin Rhodes author who's in Bellflower
He writes with class
And he writes with heart
He's a bearer of funniness, a looney bard
He's The Little Rhodes Crazy Fun Laugher-Screamer!

I don't know the original song, and I don't know if you know those little Belgian blues that I am gonna mention now, but if you do maybe there's a "Smurf City" hidden in TOS as well... :-)

I was gonna take the advice of the Red Hot Chili Peppers (they had a song "Throw Away Your Television" on their 2002 album, "By The Way"), but I can't because I'm using it as a microphone stand support...that's what my TV gets used for now...5's ~ ~ ~
