The Lyrics

Back in the day, it was 'MTV: Music Televison. All music, all the time.' Same channel now? Yeah right...if you can get past the Osbourne Show, The Real World part 15, 'Cribs,' and all the rest of the garbage, MAYBE you'll see ONE video on 'Total Request Live.' It's sad that VH1 plays more videos than MTV does today. Didn't our parents used to watch that channel!?
I don't care about the cars
I don't care about your money
It was real real good back when the music didn't end
But now the channel's full of nothin'

It's not MTV!
Now it's all just shots Tyson Beckford
The programming don't get much effort
It leaves me all in tears
'Cause what I see
Are a bunch of bad decisions
It ain't 'Music Television'
Oh yeah, I think that MTV is dead

I don't care about your big screen
Or your collection of DVDs
Things like that just never mattered much to me
When I would watch old MTV
And I don't care about your Viper
Or the spaces in your 'crib'
And if you really want to know
I hate that 'Real World' show
Is this the entertainment that you give?

It's not MTV!
I don't care who's dating Leonardo
Or stuff about the life of Bono
Or interviews with Pink
Don't you see?
The whole station is a downer
The ratings will all flounder
The channel 'MTV' is at it's end
The channel 'MTV' is at it's end
The channel 'MTV' is at it's end

Can you recall the feeling
When the music they were dealing was the best?
Videos 24/7
All that music was like heaven everyday!

(harmonica solo)

I miss MTV
Videos would really bug our parents
Wonder where the music shows went, oh
Like 'Headbanger's Ball'
You know, old school shows like 'MTV Raps'
What we've got today is just crap
'Cause there aren't videos on MTV
Does anyone out there agree with me?

It ain't MTV!
Now it's all folks like Mariah Carey
Watching those shows make me very
Sad the music's gone
Can't you see?
VH1 plays better music
That channel's 'bout to lose it
The channel 'MTV' is at it's end
At it's end
'MTV' is at it's end
