Reality killed the Video Star (parody of “Video Killed the Radio Star” by the Buggles)

I first saw you on MTV back in Eighty Two
I was lying awake intent at tuning it into you.
If I was young it didn’t stop you from coming through.
Oh-a oh
Oh-a oh

They took the credit for your second show.
replaced it with something new called reality,
and now I understand the problems you have with them.

Oh-a oh
I met your children
Oh-a oh
What did you tell them?

Reality killed the video star.
Reality killed the video star.
Stupid tricks came and broke your heart.
Oh-a-a-a oh

And now we meet on another channel
We see the playback and it seems so long ago.
And you remember how the tunes used to go.

Oh-a oh
You were the first one.
Oh-a oh
And now you are the last one.

Reality killed the video star.
Reality killed the video star.
In my mind and on my TV, we can’t rewind for we’ve gone way too far.

Oh-a-aho oh,
Oh-a-aho oh

Reality killed the video star.
Reality killed the video star.
In my mind and on my TV, we can’t rewind for we’ve gone way too far.
Stupid videos came and broke your heart, put the blame on Internet.

You are a video star.
You are a video star.

Reality killed the video star.
Reality killed the video star.
Reality killed the video star.
Reality killed the video star.
Reality killed the video star. (You are a video star.)
