Lyrics
On top of the hour
(Compulsive my behaviour)
I see my life through Sky News
(Keeping things in order)
Keep on watching things unfolding on my widescreen set
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Can't contain myself, I'm going pay-per-view
Think I'll explode
(In the corner of my room)
If I do too much gak
(Sits my one big eyeball)
It's with the advent of this pay-per-view
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Can't control myself
I scratch my knee, I have to scratch the other
(This is Sky News)
Documentaries are the best
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
I study quite hard
(In the corner of my room)
When I should be in bed
(Sits my one big eyeball)
I'm in the Open University
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Constant imprint of the test-card on my eyes
I think I should rest
(Compulsive my behaviour)
Sleep on one side and then the other
(Keeping things in order)
Always searching for the abilene
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Can't control myself
I scratch my knee, I have to scratch the other
(Sky News on the hour)
Documentaries are the best
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
I scratch my knee, I have to scratch the other
(And.. a... Sky News)
Sky News, Sky News, Sky News, Sky News, Sky, Sky, Sky.....
Documentaries are the best
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Through my TV, through my TV all my problems come
Oh-oh, ah-ha-aah-aah-aah
Ha-aah-aah-aah-aah-aah-aah
All my problems come-oh-ah!
