If you want to have fun, come home with me
You can stay all night and play with my TV

TV is the thing this year, this year
TV is the thing this year
Radio was great; now it's out of date
TV is the thing this year

Last night I was watching old Tom Nix
My TV broke, I was in a fix
I got on the phone and called my man
Said, "get here, daddy, as fast as you can"

TV is the thing this year, oh
TV is the thing this year
Radio was great, but now it's out of date
And TV is the thing this year

Now he turned my dial to channel one
I knew that this was gonna be fun
He turned my dial to channel two
That station thrilled me through and through
He moved one notch to channel three
I said, "oh, how I love what you're doin' to me"
He said, "wait a minute, let's try channel four"
Just about that time someone knocked on the door

TV is the thing this year, oh, yes
TV is the thing this year
Radio was great; now it's out of date
TV is the thing this year

The way he eased into channel five
That man must've had fluid drive
He moved once more to channel six
Then he opened up his bag of tricks
On channel seven the show was late
But we got our kicks on channel eight
He turned my dial to channel nine
Said, "baby, your set is workin' fine"
He moved on up to channel ten
Then we started all over again
He finally hit channel eleven
I cried, "mama, he treats your daughter so good"

TV is the thing this year, yes
TV is the thing this year
Yes, radio was great, but now it's out of date
TV is the thing this year

Baby, my set will need fixin' just about this time every night
