  • Song Lyrics:
    I used to think my life was so empty
    I used to think life was passin' me by
    Well, I was just about ready
    To curl up and die

    But then one day I got a visit
    From the cable company
    Well, they hooked me up and plugged me right in
    And now I got cable TV

    And now I get to watch the stock report in Korean
    Midget wrestling on channel three
    It costs me fifty bucks a month just to see 'em
    Yeah, but that's all right with me

    I got cable TV (Cable TV)
    Cable TV (Cable TV)
    Oh, 83 channels of ecstasy
    I love my cable TV, yeah
    I love my cable TV

    I got the Siamese Faith Healer's Network
    The news and weather from Peru
    I got celebrity hockey
    The Racketball Channel too

    Bugs Bunny direct from Atlanta
    Mr. Wizard is on at five
    I got a satellite dish on the trunk of my car
    So I can watch MTV while I drive

    I'm talkin' 'bout real quality programs
    The kind you just can't get for free
    Now I never wanna leave my apartment
    'Cause there's just so much for me to see

    On my cable TV (Cable TV)
    Cable TV(Cable TV)
    Well, if you need to find me
    You know where I'll be
    Watchin' my cable TV, yeah
    Watchin' my cable TV

    'Cause I love my cable TV, yeah
    I love my cable TV

    My friends are gettin' kinda worried
    They think I'm turning into some kinda freak
    Oh, but they're just jealous 'cause I've seen Porky's
    27 times this week

    On my cable TV (Cable TV)
    Cable TV (Cable TV)
    Yeah, the greatest thing that's ever happened to me
    I love my cable TV, yeah
    I love my cable TV

    Well, I got to have cable TV, yeah
    I need my cable TV

    Well, I love, I love my cable TV (TV)
    Got to have cable TV (TV)
    Well, I got to have my cable TV, yeah (TV)
    Can't live without my cable TV (TV)

    Well, I said, got to have some cable TV (TV)
    I've got to have my cable TV
    I said cable TV, yeah (TV)
    Got to have cable TV
