TV or not TV, that is the question

i broke the dial on my TV

and now its stuck on channel three

all i get is hum and snow

but i sit around and watch it though

test pattern indians

come around about two o clock

sometimes they bring the peace pipe

sometimes they bring the tomahawk

as i'm looking at the screen

a little smile begins to form

i know that they're alive in there

because my TV set is warm

i broke the dial on my TV

and now its stuck on channel three

all i get is hum and snow

but i sit around and i watch it though

look into the cathode ray

see yourself a-lookin' back

sometimes one may lose the signal

and the picture fades to black

little ghosts may come to play

and into your view they'll swarm

i know that they're alive in there

because my TV set is warm

i broke the dial on my TV

and now its stuck on channel three

all i get is hum and snow

but i sit around and watch it though
