"T.V. Age" lyrics - JOE JACKSON

"T.V. Age"
(Joe Jackson / Steve Tatler)

Here we stand -
(Remote control buttons in our sweaty little hands)
As one man -
(We're lining up and waiting for someone's command)
We don't move -
(We sent out for food, get the news on video)
I can prove -
(There's no need for movies, we got HBO)
In the
T.V. age

They're out there somewhere
(You know the force has got a lot of power -
But what makes you think it gives a shit about you...
Who are you anyway?)
They're taking over
(And I believe -
The aliens have to take a physical form on our planet -
So why not one with 13 channels...)
They're out there somewhere

Times must change
(This ain't the stone age, we don't have rocks in our heads)
What's so strange -
(We don't work no more, so why get out of bed)

T.V. rules -
(Pretty soon you won't be able to turn it off at all)
All you fools -
(Then it'll turn you off - your back's against the wall)
In the -
T.V. Age
