Saw this in the Newspaper as a title to a song they wanted to write. I wrote this one. Anyone got any music to go with it?

When we were young and alive
Working nine to five
We would watch some football to unwind
It was Howard Cosell
On those Monday nights
And I shared you with the prime time
But when the game was done
We would have some fun
With both of us calling the plays
Till that cable TV
Took you away from me
With sports twenty four hours a day

(Chorus) Between you and the national anthem
I've stood about as much as I can
You got no time for your work
You got no time for your wife
It's just you the TV and beer cans
When I said I do on my wedding day
I got a football freak not a man
Between you and the national anthem
I stood about as much as I can

We went from nineteen to twenty six
To wide screen tv
With a stereo boost to enhance
And that split screen option
On the VCR
Put a virtual lock on your pants
I ain't no Dallas Cheerleader,
But I know a few plays
And some interesting ways we could dance
If I could get you away
From the play of the day
An that baseball recappin man

(Chorus) Between you and the national anthem
I've stood about as much as I can
You got no time for your work
You got no time for your wife
It's just you the TV and beer cans
When I said I do on my wedding day
I got a baseball bum not a man
Between you and the national anthem
I stood about as much as I can

I'm gonna leave you alone
With your bookie your phone
And that beer fed middle age bloat
You can surf you can play
Till the end of your days
With your ninty nine channel remote
Gonna find me a man
Who can understand
My need for attention and love
Let him take me away
To a place we can stay
An be his hot little cuddly dove

(Chorus) Between you and the national anthem
I've stood about as much as I can
You got no time for your work
You got no time for your wife
It's just you the TV and beer cans
When I said I do on my wedding day
I got a hockey puck not a man
Between you and the national anthem
I stood about as much as I can


GreatGoo The big G stands for "Goofy"

Not sure about being a "hot little cuddly dove", but a great song! To quote Dorothy Parker: "There but for a typographical error goes the story of my life....."
