Reality TV!

My son said I should write parodies using newer songs.

Problem is I do not know many, but I have been exploring some new music and I think I have one.

Who just groaned?

Anyway, here is a parody which combines a more modern song and reality TV, what could be dorkier than that?!

Reality TV (Tune to “viva La Vida” by Coldplay)

I used to watch PBS

It kept me informed about the world

Now, in the morning  when I watch TV

It is all about TV in reality

I use to be real nice

Wouldn’t pollute my eyes

Now, I hear my family sigh

The old Rachael is dead, she gone to the dark side

One minute it was high brow you see

Now it is reality TV

I discovered Honey Boo Boo and her clan

I watch even though I don’t understand

I hear the Kardashians call each other names

Bleeped out words, cause they can’t refrain

Marriages that wind up in pain

For some reason I can’t explain

Once you start watching you….

You can no longer feel your brain

That is when I lost touch with the world

It is a wicked sin

That brought the rednecks in

Hillbillies  so out of place.

How did they ever escape?

Now in eagerness do I wait

While bridezillas set the date

Have their parents on a string

Oh who would have thought of such things?

For some reason I can’t explain

Once you start watching you….

You can no longer feel your brain

That is when I lost touch with the world

I discovered Honey Boo Boo and her clan

I watch even though I don’t understand

I hear the Kardashians call each other names

Bleeped out words, cause they can’t refrain

Marriages that wind up in pain

For some reason I can’t explain

These shows have numbed my brain

When I started to feel their pain

I knew I had lost touch with the world

In reality I only watch one reality show: Hoarders. Do you watch any reality TV? What is your favorite show?

When I first posted this I didn’t include the real song, which is a shame because it is great!

So, here it is!

  1. “Honey Boo-Boo”? I have never watched the program. You are far more “hip” than I am. What have I been missing? 🙂

  2. The only ‘reality’ show I watch is Dancing With the Stars, though I don’t know if that counts as a reality show. And I’m not sure I’ll watch that anymore. Just too many good shows I want to watch that involve good writing and talented actors. I don’t want to waste my time on this other fluff. 🙂

    1. It is kind of a waste of time isn’t it? I cannot believe people actually watch every week! If I want that much reality I won’t skip next years family reunion.

      1. Family reality should be enough for anyone don’t you think? Seriously, have a good visit with the Family!
        I hope you and all your family have a great Thanksgiving.

    1. I hate to say this, but I could not get the I’d rather be a beaver than a duck one out my head for weeks!
      Glad you liked the post! 😉

  3. “Reality TV” is a joke. If anything could be further from reality it is these shows. How can anyone have so much drama all of the time and survive? It is a virus and some one needs to stop it. I used to watch the History channel for history documentaries. Now, even on that channel, you can’t escape the “reality” shows. It’s hard to find anything about history on the history channel. Weed through Ice Road Truckers, Beard Wars, American Pickers, Pawn Stars, Loggers, and Storage Wars and you might find a show really about History! Love the post and yeah, the song is now stuck in my brain!

  4. My Best-Friend-Hubby and I haven’t turned the tv on in months. On the rare occasion when the tv is on, it’s either tuned to a fishing show that my BFH likes to watch (which is even more boring, in my opinion, than televised golf) – or it’s something on HGTV because I like house hunter and home decorater shows. I used to watch Monk, because I’m kind of a female version of the Monk character, a definite neat freak germophobe. But my hubby of 8 and 1/2 years is a hoarder, who couldn’t care less about germs. I was hoping to change his messy dirty hoarding habits. Well, what do you think happened when the Neat Freak married the Happy Hoarder?

    Bless this mess. 😦

    1. My daughter and I love Monk!

      If the hoarding gets too bad you could apply to go on the show.
      Otherwise, while he is out one day you could get a shovel and start tossing. 😉

  5. Twas the day before Thanksgiving and all through the hoarder’s house
    not a creature was stirring, not even the mouse
    which my critter-loving hoarder caught in a trap that’s humane
    so he could set the creature free in some other domain
    now the stove is cold and the kitchen is bare
    there will be no homecooked turkey, for I can’t make my way there
    through the piles of all the things my hubby can’t live without
    so we have no choice but to eat our Thanksgiving out.

    (Which wouldn’t be so bad, as it frees me up from the chore of all that cooking, but… No Leftovers! It’s downright un-American!)

Got something nice to say, witty, silly, profound, demented, redundant or redundant? Go ahead make my day!
