Heinrich Baumgarten

Junk News

They write it in the papers, they show it on TV,
They tell it on the radio: reports for you and me.
No news is bad news - bad news is better.
Good news is rare - but that doesn't matter.

They wrote it in the papers, they showed it on TV,
They told it on the radio: reports for you and me.
No news? Bad news! Bad news? That's better!
Peace talks have failed - but that doesn't matter.

They read it in the papers, they see it on TV,
They hear it on the radio: To be or not to be.
Don't give a damn, budgets growing fatter
For overkill's sake - but that doesn't matter.

Tey read it in the papers, you saw it on TV,
I heard it on the radio that we are not to be.
Same news as ever, couldn't be sadder.
So future looks dark - but that doesn't matter.
