Risin' above the city, blocking out the noonday sun
It dwarfs the mighty redwoods and it towers over everyone
I still remember when that delivery truck came down our block
What a lucky guy, I hear he got the last one in stock
And the neighbors are just green
They say, "That's the biggest screen we've ever seen!"

It's Frank's 2000" TV (Frank's 2000" TV)
Everybody come and see (Frank's 2000" TV)
Frank's 2000" TV (Frank's 2000" TV)

There's Frank's remote control, you can look, but don't touch it, please
'Cause Frank's the one in charge and he decides what everybody sees
The picture's crystal clear and everything is magnified
Robert DeNiro's mole has gotta be ten feet wide
Everybody in the town
Can hear those 90,000 watts of Dolby sound
And I'm mighty proud to say
Now I can watch "The Simpsons" from 30 blocks away

On Frank's 2000" TV (Frank's 2000" TV)
Everybody come and see (Frank's 2000" TV)
Frank's 2000" TV (Frank's 2000" TV)
Everybody come and see (Frank's 2000" TV)

I'm gonna get one of my own real soon
It's like havin' a drive-in movie in your own living room
Whoa, hey now... hey now na na now
Hey now... hey now na na now

Frank's 2000" TV (Frank's 2000" TV)
Everybody come and see (Frank's 2000" TV)
You won't believe it
Frank's 2000" TV (Frank's 2000" TV)
Everybody come and see (Frank's 2000" TV)
Frank's 2000" TV (Frank's 2000" TV)
Got a 2-year warranty on parts and labor
Frank's 2000" TV (Frank's 2000" TV)
Frank's 2000" TV

    General CommentThis is a song about the common American status symbol: a big freaking TV screen.

    "There's Frank's remote control, you can look, but don't touch it, please
    'Cause Frank's the one in charge and he decides what everybody sees"

    This quote reminds me of the wizard from The Wizard of Oz. The wizard compensated his dissapointment with his physical aesthetic (or lack of,) by using a large screen.
    Perhaps Frank isn't confident in is social skills so he uses his TV as a "society magnet," so instead of having to find friends and entertain them, the friends, although shallow, come to him, while he hides behind his TV (like the wizard) in fear that his newfound friends will be dissapointed with his physical aethetic.
