Penelope (Please Stop Recommending So Many TV Dramas)

by Brett Domino



This is a song I wrote about all the TV shows that everyone is constantly telling me to watch. For the record, I don't actually know anyone called Penelope - it's just a musical device.


Have you seen 'The Wire'?
What, you've never seen 'The Wire'?
You really need to see 'The Wire'.
Can't believe you've never seen 'The Wire'!

But you've seen 'Mad Men'?
The Danish version of 'The Killing'; 'Forbrydelsen'?
Have you looked up 'House Of Cards' on the internet?
Have you finished watching 'Breaking Bad' yet?

Well, no, I've still not seen '24'.
I've only watched 'The Walking Dead', episodes 1-4.
Still got that 'Homeland' box set that you loaned.
Because I've been told I need to start watching 'Game Of Thrones' first.

Penelope, I can't keep up with all this stuff you're recommending me.
I don't know what I should do,
I just can't get through these TV dramas I'm supposed to.

And what I don't get, is how you find the time to watch so many box sets,
And still watch normal TV, like 'Come Dine With Me',
And go to work and eat and drink and sleep.
