The News Was A Rerun So I Shut The TV Off

I turned on the TV news,
Just to check the weather.
They were saying how everything
is worse, but getting better.
More of the same, no one to blame,
Home team wins homecoming game,
Skies will be clear on New Year's Eve,
I saw but I still don't believe,

chorus
Tonight's news was a rerun!

The stories they told were two months old
forgotten before they'd even begun,

A rerun!

A fiscal cliff is looming and
That North Korea's got the bomb
And bombs are booming in Pakistan
Mayan Apocalypse a cause of Rand?

Unclear if breaking news really breaks. And if it does, is the next wave coming going to break the same way?

Sets one to wonder. Sorry I could not be helpful. The talking picture box wasn't either. Best you turned it off as you said.

I hear what you're saying. Writing songs IS hard.

Could somebody chip in and help me write verses two and three?

I'm thinking something about how with the name 'Hagel' the guy might work out better somewhere in the Commerce Department.

Witty for you to spell out what rhymes with haggle.

Haggle is a fine economic system. I know of no better way to establish price.
