  • MTV makes me wanna smoke crack
    fall out of the window and I'm never comin back
    MTV makes me wanna get high
    can't get a ride no matter how I try
    and everything's perfect
    and everything's bright
    and everyone's perky
    and everyone's uptight
    I love those videos
    I watch 'em all day........

    (what's the problem?)
    uh...I dunno just stop the tape...

    (lounge act)

    MTV whoa! makes me wanna smoke crack
    fly out the window and I'm never comin' back
    mtv makes me wanna get high as the moon
    like a rubber balloon
    aww get that squeegee
    everything's wonderful
    everything's grand
    everything's swinging
    all across the land you know it
    bust out the biscuits
    strike up the band
    play those videos
    every woman and man

    cuz MTV, whoa! makes me wanna smoke crack
    fly out the window
    and I'm never comin back
    mtv makes me wanna get high as a kite
    gettin all uptight
    take it
    aww yeah
    fake it till ya make it
    right about now
    steppin into a cold ass fashion
    aww yeah weedwack that thing

    I work down at the video store
    makin some change
    with a sparkle in my step
    and a smile on my face

    and those video's are better than love

    yeah! MTV!
