Despair to the point will they provoke 
The punchline before they have told the joke
The sheer desperation to be seen
 Staring at the television screen

 Despair 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 one hundred list

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

She 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 the magazine 
Do you reckon that they do it for a joke?
Do you reckon that they make 'em take an oath
That says 'we are defenders 
Of any poseur or professional pretender around 

When did your list replace the twist and turn
Ah, the fist replaced the kissed-on concern 
And if you're bothered, 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 ya that you were dying 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

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