  • Song Lyrics:
    Here they come, warmin' up
    I hear the pitter-patter of little people on the livin' room rug
    Whoa is me! There goes the TV
    Now it's Popeye and Pluto, Batman and Bozo
    Don't spill the corn flakes, they'll break at lunch break
    Home from the office, why did I stop to have a beer with the boys?
    Now my head's 'bout to pop

    It's a Saturday morning confusion
    If you think you can sleep, it's illusion
    'cause you'll probably get a rude intrusion from Harry the dog
    Harry the dog is as big as can be
    'n' Harry the dog had puppies last week
    We couldn't tell if it's a he or a she, now we know

    It's a Saturday morning confusion
    If I could just get to the bathroom
    And get a cold rag and an aspirin to help how I feel
    But here come the twins and they're screamin' at me
    What is the deal to turn off the TV?
    "Go ask your mother and quietly, your daddy is ill"

    There he is-Cousin Jack
    You got the leaf rake, too, keep at it till I get it all back
    Hangin' round my yard, snoopin' in my garage
    I tolerate 'im because he's my cousin
    He's nice to the kids and Harry just loves him!

    It's a Saturday morning confusion
    And if I could just hide in my attic
    So I couldn't hear my wife yellin' "Take 'em all to the show"
    I'll take the whole neighborhood to the show
    I'll just walk out in back where the money-tree grows
    Grab me a handful and off to the show we'll go

    It's a Saturday morning confusion
    And if I could just get a transfusion
    Or maybe go hide in the bedroom till five o'clock
    Let it be known that at five the TV
    Is gonna be tuned to the Game Of the Week
    And that goes for dogs and twins and the whole family

    It's a Saturday morning confusion
    It's a Saturday morning confusion day is done

    Cousin Jack, in his yard cooking steaks on a grill that I'll never get back
    The twins in front of the TV, Harry with his fam'ly
    Sis on her date and Mom at the door smiles as she surveys the sight
    For the first time today, the kingdom is quiet

    'cause I work all week long
    Be strong till they're grown
    And next Saturday then, we'll do it again

    a- Here they come, warmin' up
    I hear the pitter-patter of little people on the livin' room rug

    Whoa is me! There goes the TV
    (Captain Wayne)
