TV Talkin' Song - Bob Dylan
    One time in London i'd gone out for a walk
    Past a place called Hyde Park where people talk
    'Bout all kinds of different gods, they have their point of view
    To anyone passin' by that's who they're talkin' too.

    There was someone on a platform talkin' to the folks
    About the tv god an' all the pain that it invokes
    "It's too bright a light", he said, "for anybody's eyes
    If you're never seen one it's a blessin' in disguise."

    I moved in closer, got up on my toes
    Two men in front of me were comin' to blows
    The man was sayin' something 'bout children when they're young
    Being sacrificied to it while lullabies are bein' sung.

    "The news of the day is on all the time
    All the latest gossip, all the latest rhyme
    You mind is your temple, keep beautiful an' free
    Don't let an egg get laid in it by somethin' you can't see."

    "Pray for peace", he said, you could feel in the crowd
    My thoughts began to wander, his voice was riggin' loud
    "It will destroy your family, your happy home is gone
    No one can protect you from it once you turned it on."

    "It will lead you in some strange pusuits
    Lead you to the land of forbidden fruit
    It will scramble up your head and drag your brain about
    Sometimes you gotta do like elvis did an' shoot the damn thing out."

    "It's all been designed", he said, "to make you lose your mind
    An' when you go back to find it there's nothin' there to find.
    Everytime you look at it, your situation's worse
    If you feel it grabbin' out for you, send for the nurse."

    The crowd began to riot and' they grabbed hold of the man
    Tehre was pushin', there was shovin' an' everybody ran
    The tv crew was there to fim it, they jumped right over me
    Later on that evenin' i watched it on tv.
