She Talks to the TV By Jeff Gilpin


March 24, 2013




[A]While I’m in the other room


I hear a conversation [E]going


A [E7]little time will pass


And there is no sign of [A]slowing


So I go on in there to [D]see [E]


She’s talking to the [A]TV [E]




[A]It’s not as bad as you may think


She knows it doesn’t talk [E]back


[E7]And I’m here if she feels


That it’s conversation she [A]lacks


But I figure it’s best to let her [D]be [E]


When she talks to the [A]TV [E]


Chorus

[F]She might disagree with a [C]comment being made


[F]Or she might not like the way the plot is [C]flowing


[F]She might sympathize even [C]though she realizes


It’s [E]not her inside voice and her [E7]feelings are over flowing


[A]I remember way back when


I heard it for the [E]first time


[E7]She spoke words quite clearly


And a question came to [A]my mind


Was she just talking to [D]me [E]



Or talking to the [A]TV [E]


[A]But by what she said though


I had my confir[E]mation


I [E7]said you know they can’t hear you


And that brought on irri[A]tation


From then on I just let her [D]be [E]


When she talks to the [A]TV [E]


Chorus

[F]She might disagree with a [C]comment being made


[F]Or she might not like the way the plot is [C]flowing


[F]She might sympathize even [C]though she realizes


It’s [E]not her inside voice and her [E7]feelings are over flowing


[A]Well it hasn’t gotten any worse


And it hasn’t gotten [E]better


I’ve [E7]kind of learned to live with it


When she does it I just [A]let her


Besides it’s not hurting [D]me [E]


When she talks to the [A]TV [E]


[A]I worry from time to time


When I’m lying in the [E]sack


[E7]Not sure what I’d do if


She hears it talking [A]back


That’s a sight I hope I never [D]see [E]


When she talks to the [A]TV

Re: She Talks to the TV

Great song. Creative lyrics and catchy title. I also love the harmonic shift in the chorus.

Re: She Talks to the TV

It sounds like a sad song buddy.  I like it though.

You can see all my video covers on [url]http://www.youtube.com/bensonp1000[/url]
I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Re: She Talks to the TV

Thanks MC and Pete-

Pete, it was meant to be more tongue in cheek than sad, but I get your point. I normally keep my comments directed to the idiot box to myself but on occasion I let them out as well.

Re: She Talks to the TV

Come to think of it, I guess I yell at the tv quite often myself.  Commercials mostly.

I do more than that, but I can't compete with my wife. She did not like the song, but she admits it is spot on.

Re: She Talks to the TV

Hi Jeff,

Talking to the TV is a bit like talking to the idiots that do something stupid when we are driving. It gives a lot of satifaction but is really rather pointless smile. I do like the idea behind the song.

As usual I played it through but I struggled a little with the timing in the last two lines of the verses so I would like to hear you singing it, if you are able to get a recording done.

Hey Roger - Thanks for the feedback. I have a portable recorder now so I can send you a scratch.

Re: She Talks to the TV

Thanks for the recording Jeff,

Because of the way it shows I was rushing the chord changes on those last two lines. (Tenho a cabeça de burro) lol

The quality of the recording was absolutely fine, by the way, but you would have to compress it to send the full song and a compressed recording is plenty good enough for playback on a PC's sound system. Thank you again.

Thanks Russ. I think talking to the TV is something most folks do, but not all vocalize. I agree that it is good to get it out.
