The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
Hit the switch on your TV
I'll be broadcasting worldwide
I'm the one you want to see
When you're looking to buy

Listen to the speil I say
"Offer valid just today"
You can always find me there
Talking on air

Skip the hassle of a trip to town
Give a call and join the cultured crowd
Your order won't take long to arrive
C'mon, buy!

You had better hurry
It might pass you by
My voice is a snare
I'm talking on air

Try a self-installing dental crown
Buy a copy of the Turin shroud
And order - oh, I can't take this jive
All these lies

You had better worry
If you've chosen to buy
Cause these deals sure ain't square
I'm lying on air

Rex - Good job here. Check out - I was considering doing something to "I've Been Everywhere" ("i'll Buy Anything") until I saw the overwhelming array of merchandise available. ;D

(Artistry) Witty satire for a wispy Crimson tune.

(Artistry) Good job Rex! Made having to listen to TOS bareable.

Wow, OS nearly put me to sleep--its nothing like the other King Crimson tracks, anyhow, well written Rex, well written

(Artistry) The OS sounds like a song you'd hear in a Disney movie during a melancholy scene, making it slightly more tolerable than the usual King Crimson bilge. Anyway, great parody here, like the twist at the end. 555 for you!
