The Lyrics

Saw Night News on TV,
Six-thirty on a weekday night,
Just to check out the lies from
30 Rock.

Call it conflating,
Call it compulsive,
Call it insane;
But when I'm confronted
I just can't
Stop.

It's a matter of instinct
It's a matter of celebrity
It's a matter of fact.
You can call me Brokaw’s
Dog,

Ratings drop and I'll create,
How'd you like that?
Mr. Greenblatt tell me
I’m not just a demagogue

'Cause right now I’m
Lying on Air
Just like Brian Williams did
Well I am
Lying on Air
Just like Brian Williams did.

So I'm lying here
Just staring at my Peabody,
And I'm thinking about
My next Late Night cameo.
Just listening and relistening
To old statements,
And wondering if this is fact or some creative thought

Because I'm
Lying on air
Just like Brian Williams did
Well I am
Lying on air
Just like Brian Williams did.

And if you want to find me
I'll be out in the sandbox,
Wondering where the hell all the
trust has gone,
Flying my Chinook and
Building lies from veterans and
Singing "Fun, Fun, Fun"

Lying on air
Just like Brian Williams did
Well I am
Lying on air
Just like Brian Williams did.

I had a dream
That I was almost shot down.
And though I was far away
Reported I was forced onto the ground
Reported I was forced onto the ground
Somebody help me,
I need to be famous.

Somebody help me because I'm
Lying on Air
Just like Brian Williams did
Well I am
Lying on air
Just like Brian Williams did.

Saw Night News on TV,
Six-thirty on a weekday night,
Just to check out the lies from
30 Rock.
Call it conflating,
Call it compulsive,
Call it insane;
But when I'm confronted
I just can't
Stop.
