Lyrics:
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 it right 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 them all day

What's the problem?
Just start the tape.


Hey alright, MTV, whoa, makes me want to smoke crack
Fly out the window and I'm never coming back
MTV makes me want to get high as a moon
Like a rubber balloon, ah 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
'Cause MTV, whoa, makes me want to smoke crack
Hey, fly out the window and I'm never coming back
Oh MTV makes me want to get hiiigh as a kite
Gettin' all uptight, take it!

[piano solo]

Ah yea, fake it 'til you make it!
Right about now, steppin' into a cold-ass fashion
Ah yea, weed-whack that thing!

I worked down at the video store making some change
With a sparkle in my step and a smile on my face
Condominiums rising above
And those videos are better than love
Yea, MTV, whoa
MTV, check!
MTV makes me want to smoke crack!
