This one is a pretty stupid early song. For a much better one on the same topic, see Muder She Wrote from the Less Than Art CD on (I’ve got a parody of it, too.)

Clock strikes at eight.
Just barely past dawn.
But I can’t sleep too late,
For now, Dark Shadows is on.

Clock strikes at ten.
Clean house for a while.
But I’m back once again
To watch Gilligan’s Isle.

And it’s television in daylight!
T.V. through the day.
I watch television in daylight
Since you went away.

Clock strikes at noon.
Billie Sue’s getting wed.
Not a moment too soon!
But he dumps her, for Fred.

Clocks strikes at one.
Grab a sandwich for lunch.
But I rush to get done
For the old Brady Bunch.

And it’s television in daylight!
Nothing else to do
But watch television in daylight
Since I don’t have you.

Clock strikes at four.
And Samantha’s new spell
Has surprises in store
That may not go so well.

Clock strikes at six.
And Lucy Arnez
Is still up to her tricks 
So the T.V. Guide says.

And it’s television in daylight!
Dull daytime T.V.!
I watch television in daylight
Please come back to me!

Clocks strikes at nine.
Day’s at an end.
But the last laugh is mine,
For I’ve found a new friend.

Clock strikes at one.
All the curtains are drawn.
To the bedroom we run
To watch movies ’til dawn.

And it’s television at nighttime.
T.V. through the night.
We watch television at nighttime.
So go fly a kite!
