She Talks to the TV

She Talks to the TV

By Jeff Gilpin

March 24, 2013

[A]While Iím 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]
Sheís talking to the [A]TV [E]

[A]Itís not as bad as you may think
She knows it doesnít talk [E]back
[E7]And Iím here if she feels
That itís conversation she [A]lacks
But I figure itís 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
Itís [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 canít 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
Itís [E]not her inside voice and her [E7]feelings are over flowing

[A]Well it hasnít gotten any worse
And it hasnít gotten [E]better
Iíve [E7]kind of learned to live with it
When she does it I just [A]let her
Besides itís not hurting [D]me [E]
When she talks to the [A]TV [E]

[A]I worry from time to time
When Iím lying in the [E]sack
[E7]Not sure what Iíd do if
She hears it talking [A]back
Thatís a sight I hope I never [D]see [E]
When she talks to the [A]TV

Thanks Dino - I figured this was an idea most people could relate to.

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.

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.

Re: She Talks to the TV

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 cabeÁa 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.
