Music Monday Nr. 43

Hello fellows,
A new week just started and it´s time to post my Music Monday edition. This week, I picked a singer I already had featured: Roger Waters.
I really enjoy all his songs but the one I picked for this week´s MM has a special meaning to me.
The message for this week is "Don´t watch too much TV" and "Don´t let the TV be your kids´ babysitter" :)
Happy Monday everyone!



Amused to Death Lyrics:

Doctor Doctor what is wrong with me
This supermarket life is getting long
What is the heart life of a colour TV
What is the shelf life of a teenage queen
Ooh western woman
Ooh western girl
News hound sniffs the air
When Jessica Hahn goes down
He latches on to that symbol
Of detachment
Attracted by the peeling away of feeling
The celebrity of the abused shell the belle
Ooh western woman
Ooh western girl
And the children of Melrose
Strut their stuff
Is absolute zero cold enough
And out in the valley warm and clean
The little ones sit by their TV screens
No thoughts to think
No tears to cry
All sucked dry
Down to the very last breath
Bartender what is wrong with me
Why I am so out of breath
The captain said excuse me ma'am
This species has amused itself to death
Amused itself to death
Amused itself to death
We watched the tragedy unfold
We did as we were told
We bought and sold
It was the greatest show on earth
But then it was over
We oohed and aahed
We drove our racing cars
We ate our last few jars of caviar
And somewhere out there in the stars
A keen-eyed look-out
Spied a flickering light
Our last hurrah
And when they found our shadows
Groups 'round the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data in their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry
No feelings left
This species has amused itself to death
Amused itself to death

Darn Mize, I am on my slow satellite today and it simply refuses to listen to videos.

But, the lyrics are really cool. Hope fully I will have the other one back up in time to hear some MM picks!!

Happy MM!!:-)))
