Mtv Makes Me Want to Smoke Crack - Beck

{rolling...}

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 a ride no matter how I try.

And everything's perfect
And everything's bright
And everyone's perky
And everyone's a tight

...Of those video's
A watch 'em all day.

{Background}

[Manager: What's the problem?]
[Beck: Uhh, I dunno...just stop the tape]

(* Here, he now does a Frank Sinatra Style of music, with a piano
*)

Hey, alright.
MTV... whoa,
Makes me wanna smoke Crack.
Fly out the window,
And I'm never comin' back.
MTV makes me want to get high...as the moon,
Like a rubber balloon.
Oh, get that squeegee.
Everything's wonderful,
Everything's grand,
Everything's swingin',
All across the land.
You know it.
Bust out the biscuits,
Strike up the band,
Play those videos everyone woman and man
Cuz...
MTV...whoa, makes me wanna smoke crack.
Hey
Fly out the window,
and I'm never coming back.
Oooh
MTV...makes me want to get high as a kite,
Getting all uptight.
Take it


Ahh yea. Fake it till ya make it.
Right about now.
Stepping into a cold ass fesh.
Ahh yea, we whack that thing.


I work down at the video store,
Making some change.
With the sparkle in my step,
And a smile on my face.
Condominiums...rising above,
And those videos are better than love.
Yea, MTV...one...MTV...check...MTV makes me wanna smoke crack.
