I can't sleep at night and I can't sleep in the day
It's the TV dinner that's keeping me awake

The worms go crawling in
The worms go crawling out
The worms are playing poker on my snout

The theory of relativity
Finally started to make sense to me now
And I worry
Because the algebra never impresses me
Turning 'round, it's fascinating in proof
Of you

I think about you during the commercials
I try and keep you away
I think about you during the commercials
Every day
Stuck in my brain
"Growing Pains" go to the brain
Except sometimes when Jason talks to Mike
And they really communicate

This doll is just a head
In "The Brain That Wouldn't Die"
On "Mystery Science Theater" last night
But when I get too drunk
And start picturing your face
I think of all the girls of "Melrose Place"

Consider all the possibilities
Ushered in by new technology
One million channels
TV guide says there's a math marathon
Five great math students
We should be proud of
As Americans

I think about you during the commercials
I try and keep you away
I think about you during the commercials
All the time
Stuck in my mind
But when the break
Gets over, I
Wonder why meathead
Never gets the business end of Archie's boot

Like me and you
Like me and you
Like me and you
Like me and you

    Wonder why the meat head
    Never gets the business and the palm trees bit

    Should read:

    Wonder why meathead
    Never gets the business end of Archies boot

    (It's an "All in the Family" reference)
