I used to think my life was so empty
I used to think life was passin' me by
Well, I was just about ready
To curl up and die

But then one day I got a visit
From the cable company
Well, they hooked me up and plugged me right in
And now I got cable TV

And now I get to watch the stock report in Korean
Midget wrestling on Channel Three
It costs me fifty bucks a month just to see 'em
Yeah, but that's all right with me

I got cable TV
(Cable TV)
A cable TV
(Cable TV)
Oh, eighty-three channels of ecstasy
I love my cable TV, yeah
I love my cable TV

I got the Siamese Faith Healer's Network
The news and weather from Peru
I got celebrity hockey
The Racketball Channel too

Bugs Bunny direct from Atlanta
Mr. Wizard is on at five
I got a satellite dish on the trunk of my car
So I can watch MTV while I drive

I'm talkin' 'bout real quality programs
The kind you just can't get for free
Now I never wanna leave my apartment
'Cause there's just so much for me to see

On my cable TV
(Cable TV)
A cable TV
(Cable TV)
Well, if you need to find me you know where I'll be
Watchin' my cable TV, yeah
Watchin' my cable TV
'Cause I love my cable TV, yeah
I love my cable TV

My friends are gettin' kinda worried
They think I'm turning into some kinda freak
Oh, but they're just jealous 'cause I've seen Porky's
Twenty-seven times this week

On my cable TV
(Cable TV)
A cable TV
(Cable TV)
Yeah, the greatest thing that's ever happened to me
I love my cable TV, yeah
I love my cable TV
Well, I got to have cable TV, yeah
I need my cable TV

Well, I love, I love my cable TV
(TV)
Got to have cable TV
(TV)
Well, I got to have my cable TV, yeah
(TV)
Can't live without my cable TV

Well, I said, got to have some cable TV
(TV)
I've got to have my cable TV
I said cable TV, yeah
(TV)
Got to have cable TV
(TV)
