    It’s astounding;
    Time is fleeting;
    The Franchise takes its toll.
    But watch closely.

    The past’s no longer.

    Try hard to keep control.
    I remember doing the re-runs
    Drinking those hours when
    Six series would take me

    The TV would be calling:

    “Let’s do the re-runs again.
    Let’s do the re-runs again.”

    It’s just a change to the time-line

    That’s what they tell me to think

    Put hands over your eyes

    And keep your mouth closed tight.
    But it’s those damned lens flares
    That really drive me insane!
    Let’s do the re-runs again!
    Let’s do the re-runs again!

    It’s so queasy, oh fantasy free me
    So I can’t see it, no not at all.
    From some new dimension, with
    Monetary intention,
    Dumb and thoughtless, he does call

    “Do a bit of a mind flip
    You’ll love my time slip
    And nothing will ever be the same.
    Space out on sensation”

    Like you’re under seDAtion!

    “Don’t do the re-runs again!
    Don’t do the re-runs again!”

    Well I was walking down the street
    Just a-having a think
    When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink.
    He shook-a me up, he took me by surprise.
    He had Hollywood chops and the devil’s eyes.
    He stared at me and I felt a change.
    Canon was gone, would never be again.

    Let’s do the re-runs again!
    Let’s do the re-runs again!

    It’s just a change to the time-line

    That’s what they tell me to think

    Put hands over your eyes

    And keep your mouth closed tight.
    But it’s those damned lens flares
    That really drive me insane!
    Let’s do the re-runs again!
    Let’s do the re-runs again!
