Don't touch that dial, don't click the clicker
We love to watch, they love to bicker
Don't turn the knob or change the channel
Hey! Where the hell did they get this panel?
Where are they from? Where have they been?
They air it out, we suck it in
Up on stage all in a row
At each other's throats all through the show
The mood is tense, the tension's thicker
We watch, they fight, just who here's sicker?

We're not so bad, I guess after all
Their problems make ours seems so small
We'd be much better off I bet
If we'd turn off the TV set,

She broke down and he came clean
We stay glued, glued to the screen
Just how much more can we take?
Thank God, here comes a station break


Don't think that we can take much more
We've lost it now, man, that's for sure
Lost another day, check out the clock
Turn it off, pull the plug, shut it down, now, we should talk

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives."

Ed Sheeran
“Midnight” is a song about finding a love that is so true that it provides a calming feeling through every storm. Ed Sheeran reflects on his good fortunes in landing someone with such peace and support and speaks of not fearing the dark days because he knows they’ll all end in the safety nets of her arms. “Well, good morning there / What a way to start the day / With everything laid bare,” Ed Sheeran sings in the first verse, enthusiastic to be waking up beside his woman. He apologizes for missing her calls in the second verse and promises to return them because for him, speaking to her is the most important thing. “Well, I get lost inside my head / In this chaos, you’re my calm / And I will find my feet again / ‘Cause еven the worst days of my life will always еnd / At midnight in your arms,” sings Ed Sheeran in the chorus, revelling in his good luck.
