TV TALK   
©1993 Sally Fingerett, Green Fingers Music, BMI

I heard about this man, wanted a wife and some children
The problem with this man is he used to be a woman
Now he wants a family, someone to understand
There she is sitting with him she wants a husband and some children
The situation here is she’s not a real woman
There they are together the man who was a woman
The woman who was a man
How do I know?  I’ve seen it on the
Talk - talk TV talk, talk show

Then there was this woman, had a quirky daughter
Forty times a day the kid sticks her hands in water
Doctors say the young girl is trying just to cleanse her soul
She’s a prisoner in the bathroom, stuck inside the bathroom
She’s compulsive in the bathroom - they film her from the bathroom
Mom would like to use the bathroom now and then you know
Where does she go?  She goes on the
Talk - talk TV talk, talk show

One day Oprahs’ heavy - next day Oprahs skinny
One day Oprahs’ heavy - next day Oprahs skinny
Jenny Jones had big boobs - Jenny’s big boobs are gone
Where’d they go?  I wonder 
One day Oprahs’ heavy - next day Oprahs skinny
One day Oprahs’ heavy - next day Oprahs skinny
I’m checking in with Donahue, he’s got a nice dress on
What’s going on?  On the
Talk - talk TV talk, talk show

They’ve got mothers who are dating daughter’s boyfriends
Mothers who are dating daughter’s girlfriends
Mothers who are dating guys who like to dress like priests
They got ninety year old grandmas who lost it all on gambling
Fourteen year old runaways going home to families
Maury, we don’t give a shit - who’s the real daddy
But people keep tuning in
For the things you show on the
Talk - talk TV talk, talk show

I’m just a simple woman, with simple complications
I can be lazy, lacking motivation
Today I am a voyeur - I cannot let go
I view the TV for holistic meditation
Compared to some my life it is perfection
Does anybody understand our attraction to people who suffer so
Hope I never know - or you’ll see me on the
Talk - talk TV talk, talk show
I gotta go - Oprahs on
