man came the other day
to install my dsl line
man was that fine
and just ta' pass the time
i got cable tv too

whata' ya' do
the price was right
a package deal
man it was a steal

man say ok...
you up and roadrunnin'
i be sunnin'
in the glow
man ask
where's your tv
said i don't know

he say you pay for cable
you ain't got no tv?
that's not part of the package deal
he say
come on git real

me i say
but it's too good a deal
to pass on
so just turn it on
and i'll see what i see

he looked at me
like i was crazy
i say
pictures a little fuzzy
but that's ok
how many channels
do i git?

he said man
don't you understand
you ain't got no tv
said i know
but if i did
what would be hid
behind that screen
know what i mean?

103 on basic cable
premium we're able...
stopped him right there...

man i ain't got no tv
why would i need premium

good point

ask wanna' smoke a joint?

he looked at me
and i could see
he was tempted
no wonder you don't need no tv

i say
one day
tv & me
we be cabilized
he realized

now i don't pay for you
to come back
he smiled
just a little toke
and so he & me
we smoke
and watched my wall
that's all

but i am able
i got cable
i can be
if i just buy a tv
