WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?WORDS & MUSIC: Earl P. Reinhalter
I. the president speaks. hear the play-by-play: "it's time for the commercial. we have to break away." wall-to-wall narration tells what you missed. with replays an' sound bites, they give you the gist. CHORUS A: what's wrong with this picture? newsman in the way. what's wrong with this picture? he's got too much to say. II. it's time for the locals, the media farm team. Rip N. Reed quotes A.P. his name blots out the screen. bulletins clutter network shows with school boards, the mayor's health and stupid promos. (repeat chorus A) III. I'm watching the game: the screen is filled with close-ups of players on green treadmills, crowd shots and mascots and gossip galore. haven't they heard, less is more? (repeat chorus A) CHORUS B: I'm changing the picture. goodbye, au revoir. I am the master of my VCR. ENDING: goodbye, au revoir. goodbye, au revoir. (ad lib and fade)
