I Taped The Wrong Side

A song about video recorders

Video by Mike Fordham

 

 

It was late in the evening

I was flicking through the TV guide

When I stumbled on a programme

A documentary ’bout Venetian blinds

 

Well I programmed up my video

And I went to bed

But when I woke up in the mornin

I done shook my head

 

Cos I, ooo, I

I taped the wrong side

Yes I, ooo, I

I taped the wrong side

 

Well the very next day I bought a new machine

It had video plus written up the side

The man in the shop said it’s as easy as pie

And that a baby could do it if it only tried

 

I tried to tape the Krypton Factor

Using all the numbers

But when I played it back

It was a film about cucumbers

 

Cos I, ooo, I

I taped the wrong side

Yes I, ooo, I

I taped the wrong side

 

Let me tell you about it right here and now people

 

I taped songs of praise when it should have been snooker

I got half of Rocky but only by fluke-a

I got episode 3 of 24 season 2

And I can’t figure out just who is who

 

Cos I, ooo, I

I taped the wrong side

Yes I, ooo, I

I taped the wrong side

 

Well I phoned up my son in law and asked for his advice

And he got in his car and came around

 

Just like that

 

He unplugged all my A.V. leads and changed them to a scart

Now I have to turn on my hifi to get sound

 

I don’t know why

 

He wrote out some instructions and said nothing could go wrong

So I sat down in my comfy chair and tried to watch King Kong

 

But I, ooo, I,

I taped the wrong side

Yes I, ooo, I

I taped the wrong side
