LYRICS

When the old man died, it was covered on the 12 o’clock news
If my TV lied, that’s because it was lied to
When we pulled the plug, that was when we knew

Someone was screaming the national anthem at me
Not because it’s true, but because it made me believe
When you pull the plug, maybe then you’ll see

She’s a pretty girl, but she comes only in one size
Better sit back son, that thing’ll rot your eyes
When you pull the plug, then you’ll realize

When the old man died, he was buried with a 12 bar blues
If my TV lied, that’s because it was lied to
When we pulled the plug, that was when we knew
When we pulled the plug, that was when we knew
