"Cable TV" as written by and Samuel Bing....
Now you've been working so hard
Running in circles
Like a robot shorting circuits
Like it's set to blow

I've gotta make an appointment
Just to kiss you
Baby I'm not complaining
But I've got to know

Won't you come away with me
I'm not rich
But the first night is on me
You know I just got paid baby
I know a place and they got Cable TV

Now here we are
By the pool of this motel
Getting dizzy from the spritzers
And the desert heat

I'm getting tired of waiting
Fuck the hot tub
Let's go back to the room

And watch some Cable TV

Won't you come away with me
The carpets filthy but the ice is free
You know I just got paid
So we can order Pay-Per-View
If nothing's good on TV

It's getting late hit the lights
But leave the TV on
And put in the dance mix
Let the boom box boom

I thought that I knew what love was
Then I saw you
Dancing in your underwear too
And I think of you

When I think of you baby
My heart just triples in size
When I think of you baby

    General CommentOn the second to last stanza I hear:

    I thought that I knew what love was
    Then I saw you dancing
    in your underwear
    to "When I Think of You"

    Haha, that could easily just be what I wanted to hear though. -- I love this song, particularly the way she sings the first "When I think of you baby" in the last stanza.

    My InterpretationI love this song! It sounds so laid-back and kind of like "oh, I don't care, whatever" but the lyrics really change that meaning, if you can read between the lines. Like "pay per view" = porn. It's sneaky. :)
