The Lyrics

Ever had a long day at work yesterday and feel like watching television? There, have this parody to make you feel relaxed.
[Verse 1]
Just got off work yesterday, like building rowboats.
I'm staying home today, yeah. just gotta grab my remote.
Don't know which show to pick.

[Chorus]
Click, click, click, changing channels.
Click, click, click, changing channels.

[Verse 2]
Now changing channels is my thing.
Game shows would be great here.
I'd pick a song to sing, ah.
And read the news that's fine there.

[Pre-Chorus]
I know the best thing may come soon, yeah, yeah.
I've been thinking of it since half past noon.
It's so funny (funny in comic strips)
I think I will watch a cartoon!

[Chorus]
Click, click, click, changing channels.
Click, click, click, changing channels.

[Verse 3]
But changing shows will make me bored. (ahh)
I'll end up right on the floor. (ahh)
I will go and shut my own bedroom door. (ahh)
And go to bed, snooze.

[Pre-Chorus]
I know the best thing may come soon, yeah, yeah.
I've been thinking of it since half past noon.
It's so funny (funny in comic strips)
I think I will watch a cartoon!

[Chorus]
Click, click, click, changing channels.

[Chorus]
Click, click, click, changing channels.
Click, click, click, changing channels.
Click, click, click, changing channels.
Click, click, click, changing channels.

Five, five, five, and this comment! :-)

Loved the title swap, well executed overall - and the line "click, click, click, changing channels" was pure genious!

So, the reason Jamie was crying was crying is because they took away his remote? I never made that connection before. Thank you for that insight Farius.

Whoops, I believe I just called you Farius, Darius. But my intent was not nefarious, Darius. Just an honest slip up on my smart phone.

You're quite welcome, CML. And no, Jamie didn't cry because of the remote in the original song. And thanks, Peter.
