Daytime TV

lyrics

There's here, there's this
And not to be remiss there is everything that exists
It exists on daytime TV
I fall into the scene
Lifelike I live onwards behind the screen
Every day, it gets the better of me

Now I see the postgirl
Carrying her letters
The golden sun unfurling all its petals
But no she won't stop
Letters to stack and drop
Somewhere better than this

There's always somewhere better than this
Look at that Pelican
He's always harbouring something
Like us Americans
Always harbouring something
We're always harbouring something

But on daytime TV we're just passersby
Like golden jets across flats of alkali
With our golden girls, we are golden guys
We roll like holy rollers
And I'm a big baller,
Not a dude with a stroller
And now I'm five inches taller
I've got a houndstooth coat
And I pop up the collar and go

It's OK to want to wash that grey
Only $9.95, just give a call today
Professional driver zooming down the track
Take the blue pill to get your life back
Fibre schmibre taste is where it's at
Get the fish flavour if you want a happy cat
More fresh and minty than all those other brands
Nothing is as friendly as our own tar sands
Look ten years younger
Beat world hunger
These wipers are the shizzle
For the lightning and the thunder
It's a new solution for air pollution
Join us in the ranks of the mascara revolution
