Lyrics

Television
Written by Nick Lowe

At the end of every working day
I hurry home as fast as I can
Grab myself a bite
'cause since you left me I'm a lonely man
I crack out a can of something
Settle down in my chair
From that moment 'till the spot disappears
Man, I could be anywhere

I'm pluggin' in my...Television
Turn it on...Television
Tune it in...Television
'n everything...Television
I'm lookin' at...Television
Just like a cat...Television
That little set...Television
It never quits
Let me tell you I don't care what's on if it's happy or sad
Don't give a damn if it's good or bad
I'll sit and watch it 'till it drives me mad
Just as long as it's on I'm glad

Now everybody that I used to know
They never come around no more
I don't go out either
'cause I ain't got nowhere to go
You see my best friend has been livin' in
Ever since you've been gone
All I gotta do is activate that tube
And I don't have to miss you no more

I'm pluggin' in my...Television
Turn it on...Television
Tune it in...Television
'n everything...Television
I'm lookin' at...Television
Just like a cat...Television
That little set...Television
It never quits
Let me tell you I don't care what's on if it's happy or sad
Don't give a damn if it's good or bad
I'll sit and watch it 'till it drives me mad
Just as long as it's on I'm glad
