 ------------------------

(Biafra)
Intro: F# B C# (2x bass only)
[F#]Fun Fun Fun in the [B]fluffy [C#]chair
Flame [F#]up the herb
Woof [B]down the [C#]beer (2x and continues on background)
(click!)
[F#]Hi! I'm your video [B]DJ[C#]
I [F#]always talk like I'm [B]wigged out on [C#]quaaludes
[F#]I wear a satin [B]baseball [C#]jacket everywhere I [F#]go[B] [C#]
My [F#]job is to [B]help dest[C#]roy
What's [F#]left of your i[B]magi[C#]nation
By [F#]feeding you [B]endless [C#]doses
Of [F#]sugar-coated mindless [B]garbage[C#]
So [F#]don't create [B]Be se[C#]date
Be a [F#]vegetable at home And [B]thwack on that [C#]dial
If [F#]we have our way even [B]you will be[C#]lieve (Fun fun fun... ends)
[F#]This is the future of rock and roll
(M.T.V GET OFF THE AIR!)
How [F#]far will you go[B] [A]
How [F#]low will you stoop[B] [A]
To [B]tranquilize our [A]minds with your [B]sugar-coated [A]swill
You've [F#]turned rock and roll rebellion[B] [A]
Into [F#]Pat Boone sedation[B] [A]
[B]Making sure [A]nothing's left [B]of the imagi[D]nation
[C#]M.T.V. [B]Get off the
[C#]M.T.V. [B]Get off the
[C#]M.T.V. [B]Get off the [F#]air (2x)
[E]Get off the [F#]air
[F#]See the latest rejects [B] [A] [F#]from the muppet show[B] [A]
[B]Wag their tits and their [A]dicks
As they [B]lip-synch on [A]screen
There's [F#]something I don't like
A[B]bout [A]a [F#]band who always smiles[B] [A]
An[B]other tax [A]write-off
For some [B]schmuck who doesn't [D]care
M.T.V. Get off the air...
Get off the air
Get off the air
Get off the [F#]air[F] [E] [D#] [C#]

C#m B A G# (2x trumpet or something)
And [C#]so it [B]was
Our [C#]beloved corporate [B]gods
[F#]Claimed they cr[E]eated rock [F#]video[E]
[C#]Allowing it to [B]sink as low in [C#]one year[B]
As [F#]commercial [E]TV has in [C#]25
[C#m]"It's the new frontier," [B]they say
It's [A]wide open, anything can [G#]happen
But [C#m]you've got a lot of nerve
To call your[B]self a pioneer
When you're too [A]god-damn conservative
To take [G#]real chances.
[C#]Tin-eared[B]
Graph-[C#]paper [B]brained ac[F#]countants
[E]Instead of music [F#]fans[E]
[C#]Call all the [B]shots at giant [C#]record companies [B]now
The [F#]lowest common de[E]nominator [C#]rules
[C#m]Forget honesty
[B]Forget creativity
The [A]dumbest buy the mostest
That's the [G#]name of the game
But [C#m]sales are slumping
And [B]no one will say why
[A]Could it be they put out one too many [G#]lousy records?!?
[C#]M.T.V. - [B]Get off the [F#]air!
[F#]NOW!

Some chords may be missing in the fast part and the bass line probably
isn't very accurate. At least it's played higher, I think. Corrections
are naturally welcome.
