YEAH TOAST!!


Boat Anchor

Well my VCR went on the fritz
And I took it to the repairman
Eighty-five dollars just to open up the back
and stick his nose on in
He said "You can get a brand new VCR
For thirty dollars more than I can fix
This out-of-date,
antique,
can't-get-these-parts-for-several-weeks,
if-at-all, piece of ...!"

It's a boat anchor
Eight-event-programming boat anchor
Clock flashin' twelve,
Throw it in the lake, hold your boat in place
Boat anchor

Well my computer went on the fritz
And I took it to the repairman
Eighty-five dollars just to open up the back
and stick his nose on in
He said "You can get a brand new computer
For two hundred more than I can fix
This out-of-date,
antique,
can't-get-these-parts-for-several-weeks,
if-at-all, piece of ...!"

It's a boat anchor
286 megahertz boat anchor
Monochrome monitor,
Throw it in the lake, hold your boat in place
Boat anchor

Well you can't get your money back
For all of that broken crap
That you spent your hard-earned dollar on
And the warranty they tout
Has a way of runnin' out
The very day before the smoke comes pourin' out

As the sun is setting on Lake Drowned Appliance
And I pull in one last perch
Don't you know that it's time to go
So I pull the anchor up by the rope
Up from the bottom comes a color TV
With a 26" diagonal tube
And though I may gripe, that repairman was right
You know my old rowboat has never moved

It's a boat anchor
Cable-ready boat anchor
Picture-in-a-picture,
Throw it in the lake, hold your boat in place
Boat anchor

It's a boat anchor
Look at all those remotes down there boat anchor
Yeah, right next to the cell phones
Throw it in the lake, hold your boat in place
Boat anchor
