In 1649, to St George's Hill. A ragged band they called the Diggers came to show the peoples' will.


With apologies to Gil Scott-Heron.

The Revolution will not be televised 2004.

You will not be able to stay home, brother.

You will not be "just lovin it”.

You will not be able to “taste the difference”.

And things “won’t only get better”.

Because the revolution will not be televised.



The revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will be brought to you via the Internet.

From across the world without commercial interruptions.

The revolution will not show you pictures of Bush.

Serving turkey or piloting a plane.

There will be no party political spin.

Not Campbell. Nor Hutton. Nor Mandelson.

The revolution will not be televised.



The revolution will not be brought to you by Rupert Murdoch.

And it won’t be the “Sun wot won it”.

It will not star Gareth Gates, Will Young or Girls Aloud.

The revolution will not “cut out the carbs”.

The revolution will not ask “how you doin'?”.

The revolution will not make your lashes thicker nor your hair softer.

But it will be "worth it".

And the revolution will not be televised, Brother.



There will be no pictures of Posh and Becks,

Wearing bling bling at a Westend premiere.

There will be no national lottery.

There will be no Arthur, no Guinivere nor Camelot.

No Fame Acadmey nor Pop Idols.

The revolution will not be televised.



There will be no Footballers' Wives

No Chat, Hello or Take a Break.

There will be no pictures of Jade’s new love nest.

Nor the cheating Major.

There will be no Hamiltons. There will be no Simon Cowell.

Celebrities will get themselves out of there.

There will be no Champions League.

Brought to you by Visa, Amstel, McDonalds and Nutella.

There will be no Adidas, Puma nor Reebok.

Nike will not “just do it”.



Eastenders, Coronation Street and Emmerdale Farm

Will not be shown.

No one will care about Jordan and Peter Andre

Or which one is Ant,

And which one is Dec.

Big Brother will be driven out.

From the Government and the diary room.

No one will text in their nominations

Because the revolution will not be televised.



There will be no 24-hour live showing on E4.

No highlights package with Tara Palmer Tompkinson,

Vernon Kay or June Sarpong.

The theme song will not be written by Moby.

It will not feature Craig David, Daniel Bedingfield

Robbie Williams, Christina Aguillera or Britney Spears.

The revolution will not be televised.



The revolution will not be right back after this message.

About soul music brought to you by KFC.

It will not “do what is says on the tin”.

It wil not help you “work, rest and play”.

The revolution will not “take a Diet Coke break”.

The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath.

The revolution will not be fuelled by tall skinny latte’s.



The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,

will not be televised, will not be televised.

The revolution will not be re-run on UK Gold.

The revolution will be live.




Love, light and peace,

I saw two shooting stars last night I wished on them but they were only satellites. It's wrong to wish on space hardware. I wish, I wish, I wish you'd care.
