Wilma Flinstone, Marcia Brady,
Alice Kramden, Gladys Kravitz,
Laverne and Shirley, Jeannie,
Morticia Adams, Aunt Esther,
Sweet Polly Purebread, Natasha,
Mrs. MacGuilguddy

How could she?

Ginger, Mary Anne, Mrs. Howell,
Samantha Stevens, Lieutentant Uhura,
Judy Jetson
Olive Oyl, Ethel Mertz,
Edith Bunker, Marylin Munster,
Rhoda, Penny Robinson

How could she?

Why don't you love me anymore?

Quite upset, angry, just plain annoyed
No recourse except for celluloid
In my heart, I know you are not real
Though in my mind, suspect you can still feel

Walt Disney or Hannah-Barbera
Black or white, stunning Technicolor
Warner Brothers and the A.A.P.
I've become addicted to TV

Crissy Snow, Catwoman,
Creepela, Weezie Jefferson,
Bettie Rubble, Little Cindy Who
Penelope Pitstop, Lois Lane,
Vanna White, Wonder Woman,
Elly May, Maude, Witchiepoo

How could she?

Why don't you love me anymore?

How could you?

Why don't you love me anymore?

    General CommentJambo, you hit it on the head, it's definitly about a loser who can't find his own girl so he obsesses over TV girls, but with Peter Steeles sense of humor, I think the chorus "Why don't you love me anymore" is the loser whining because all those shows have been cancelled, he's acting as if all those woman are his ex-girlfriends.

    General CommentI think this one is about a lonely man in front of the T.V, he can't turn to real women because he's such a loser, and fantasises about the women on T.V in his dreams. However, his past experiences with women have made the women reject him even in his dreams. It is also helped along by his fan letters that were replied to before, but now go unnoticed
    and guys, come on, i've started 3 of tehse convos about T.O.N, so for the love of god someone needs to reply.
    and that's how much of a loser i am :)

    General CommentI love the faster bit in the middle. I often find myself humming this without even realizing it. ;P I think it's pretty interesting how much rougher it sounds. With the way it's laid out, I've always imagined it like a scene with the narrator watching TV in a dark room. At first, he's kind of muttering to himself and listing off names of these ladies, but then it goes on a bit. After thinking some more, he breaks himself from the daze and erupts into anger (the middle section). Then, he settles down a bit (back to the more legato part) and goes back into his sad state of loneliness... and perhaps even self-pity.
    Hey, that's just how I imagine it. [:

    General CommentPretty sure this song was about how his sister or someone signed Peter into an insane asylum, and all the TV references are all the shows he watched while he was inside.
    "How could she/you?" He's obviously questioning why they put him there. Just a more right sounding opinion..
