Lyrics

Season of Silence

My dad's always sitting around
drinking beer and watching TV.
He doesn't talk he doesn't utter a sound
he sits around and watches TV.
He always thought that it didn't matter
what he said or did
and I could never tell him nothing, I was just a kid

My mom always packed me a lunch
and while she did she watched the TV.
she didn't know that it was getting me down
anyhow she watched the TV.
I could play with the color tuning
make the faces green
and even with the volume off
they still stared at that screen

Not another season of silence
no more Happy Days or Benny Hill
Not another season of silence
I'd turn it off but they'd be watching it still.

I had a brother who was older than me
he didn't dance he just watched TV
He didn't call girls or go out at night
he just stayed home and watched the TV
He never thought about examples
that a kid might need
And if i tried to talk to him well
he would just be mean

So I went to the station and I got myself a job
I work all night and it ain't great pay
But I love I really really do
Now at last I can say
Hey Mom and Dad
I told you so
I'm on the TV
and I got my own show
Hey Mom and Dad
Hey look at me
I'm your little boy and I'm on TV.

No more beaver no more cleaver
I really couldn't care
No Jetsons no more Sky King
They're watching me up there
No more Drag Net no more Gun Smoke
those guys are all gone.
No more Zoro no more Bozo
Now I'm the one that's on.

Not another season of silence
no more Happy Days or Benny Hill
Not another season of silence
I'd turn it off but they'd be watching it still.
