Thread Name: Lyr Req: Television / Tele-Vee-Shun (Stan Freberg)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Television
The recording includes one additional verse that is not shown above:

I watch the late, late movie then I climb the stairs,
Get into bed and have television nightmares
Complete with bad commercials that repeat all night
Both in compatible color and black-and-white.
Someday my son grow up and want to go to sea,
So he prob'ly go and try to join US Navy.
They give him aptitude test, mon, now here's the rub:
They find him best suited for watching Mickey Mouse Club.

[It's also on an album "The Very Best of Stan Freberg" (2008) which can be heard on Spotify.]
