Deep Purple - MTV I was driving through the night Into an endless tunnel of fog When it dawned on me something was wrong I was in a trance, hypnotised Bored beyond belief I was listening to the same old song I know every lick, every word Every nuance I'm on first name terms with the crew But I'd better get used to this poop du jour Sure as hell they won't play anything new Oh yes I love you really Classic Rock Radio Oh my dear it's time for bed Time for you to go Everyone is asleep The pirates took to the water stole the charts But sadly that didn't go down well with those upstairs Who require loyalty The establishment considered That the uncontrolled appreciation of music Was a danger to royalty The mighty empire roared As Cash 'n' Everitt on the high seas Looked like they'd get blown out of the water They did of course eventually come ashore As meek as mice or to be more accurate As lambs to the slaughter Oh yes I love you really I stand to attention Oh Fanny, I love you dearly Something else I should mention? You sweet thing Let's not talk about MTV I don't even want to start I want to take a look at Classic Rock Radio We're talking about the state of the art Mr. Grover 'n' Mr Gillian You musta made a million The night that Frank Zappa caught on fire Could you tell us all about it Keep it short and use my version Or everyone out there'll think I'm a liar We can speak about bananas for one second Just because I understand You have to get them off your chest But in the meantime while your talking Could you do some more of these here ID's And then this station might maintain some interest Oh yes I love you dearly But why do you exist? Oh yes I love you really Is there something that I missed?
