Teddy Picker

They've sped up to the point where they provoke
The punchline before they have told the joke
Plenty of desperation to be seen
Staring at the television screen

They've sped up to the point where they provoke you
To tell the fucking punchline before you have told the joke
Sorry, sunshine, it doesn't exist
It wasn't in the top 100 list

And it's the thousandth time and it's even bolder,
Don't be surprised when you get bent over,
He told you, but you were gagging for it

Saw it and she grabbed it and it wasn't what it seemed
The kids all dream of making it, whatever that means

Another variation on a theme
A tangle on the television and a magazine
D'you reckon that they do it for a joke?
D'you reckon that they make 'em take an oath?
That says that "we are defenders
Of any poser or professional pretender around"

When did your list replace the twist and turn like a fist
replaced the kiss?
Don't concern us with your bollocks
I don't want your prayers
Save it for the morning after

And it's the thousandth time and it's even bolder,
Don't be surprised when you get bent over,
He told you, but you were gagging for it

Let's have a game on the teddy picker
Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?
Already thick, and you're getting thicker
Let's have a game on the teddy picker
Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?
Already thick, and you're getting thicker

Presuming that all things are equal
Who'd want to be man of the people
When there's people like you?
