The Lyrics

It Was Only A Pay Per View,
Stolen offa' the cable dish
Had new movies and girly shows
Just sailin' in like fish

It Was Only A Pay Per View,
Bouncin' offa' that satellite
I got hooked on that Red Eye Buzz,
Stayed up late ev'ry nite

From that black box
Marched a digital parade
From that black box,
My remote and me played
Such a sweet serenade

Like a Time and a Warner World,
All the premiums came my way
But they found out and
Fined my ass five hundred bucks, today!
