“Black and White TV”

 

Black and White TV

Black and white TV
Black and white TV
Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV

When I was a child I watched TV all the time
And learned how the world’s s’posed to be
Sinners pay for their sins, and the hero always wins
It’s always black and white on TV

But I grew and I changed and I saw the shades of gray
How people never say what they mean
I want more from my life, so much more than black and white
Yeah I’m bustin’ free from that tiny screen

It’s hard to be yourself
Not act like everyone else
When all you know is what’s on TV

Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV
Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV

Girl you stay in your place, don’t raise your voice, don’t show your face
My momma used to tell me each day
It’s a hard cruel world, don’t you break the rules now, girl
You know it’s easier this way

But I grew and I changed and I had to get away
And let myself stand out from the crowd
In my life I desire so much more than black and white
Living life out loud, like a peacock I’m proud

Don’t rock the boat they say
Don’t push the boundaries
Don’t change the channel on your TV

Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV
Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV
Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV
Don’t believe it’s how it has to be
Black and white TV

And now that I’m grown, yeah my life is my own
I’ve become the person I’m meant to be
All the rules I’ve ignored, but I’m never ever bored
There’s so much to do and so much to see

I remember the days back before I found my way
The world was so much darker and duller
I was wandering blind in a land of black and white
Now we live all in color
We’re free to love each other

It’s hard to be yourself
Not act like everyone else
It’s hard to know what’s right
When the world’s not black and white
Don’t rock the boat they say
Don’t you push the boundaries
Don’t change the channel on your TV

Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV
Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV

Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV
Don’t be like the people that you see
On black and white TV

Black and white TV, TV, TV
Black and white TV
Don’t believe it’s how it has to be
Black and white TV
Black and white TV
