The Lyrics

This is a preacher's son and his brothers explaining to their little sister why watching the news is dangerous.
buh-buh buh buh-buh-buh
buh-buh buh buh-buh-buh

You watch the news to learn, girl
Things that happened here the day before
But they lie to us, there's no one to trust
So most channels I ignore
Now now now, I'm gonna teach you
(Teach you, teach you)
All about trust, dear
(All about trust)
Sit yourself down, take a seat
All you gotta do is repeat after me

Evil as NBC
Dishonest as CBS
Truthfulness, they suppress
What a freakin mess girl

Evil as NBC
Dishonest as CBS
Truthfulness, they suppress
What a freakin mess girl

Come on, let us watch just a little bit
Come on, let us watch just a little bit
I'm a going to teach you how to filter out
Come on, come one, come on
Let me show you what it's all about

A college education
May impress people on the street
But without the word of God every day, girl
Your education ain't complete
P-p-p-preacher's gonna show you
(Show you, show you)
How to discern
(How to discern)
Don't waste your youth
Learn the truth
Read the Bible baby, that's all you gotta do

It's evil as NBC
Dishonest as CNN
Stupid men, not our friend
cuz they always spin girl

ABC, it's easy
Propaganda we believe
Change the way that we perceive
That's how easy they deceive
That's how easy they deceive
What a tangled web they weave
NBC, on TV...
