Shut It Down, Turn It Off

lyrics by Jay Leo Phillips

Doled out in little pieces
With new selections from the sideline thesis
Collect call selects y'all
So surreptitiously they stack the survey
Break out the statisticians
This chart was sponsored by the fact-patricians
The blue-screen protest scene
Projects the picket signs and now it's really on
We'll see who will get their funeral at sea, won't we?

Shut it down, turn it off.
Your words are wasted
Shut it down, turn it off
This time I mean it, and it's
Shutting down, turning off.
Your words are wasted
Shut it down, turn it off
This time I mean it.

Cut to the correspondent
Wearing the jacket with the logo on it.
We can't see catastrophe
Get some destruction in the back, now, will you?
The sentence ended with a superscript
But there's no corresponding footnote yet.
Get that kid in my office now
We're gonna hand them all their walking papers
Then they'll see who will get their funeral at sea. Won't we?
