Because it's getting to be about the time of year for the "please don't leave for the summer" jingles.

Out on the road today, we saw a TK sticker on an old hatchback
A middle digit raised from his hand, I said "Hey look at that, he’s salutin’ us with that”

Our eyes locked as I drove past
And we both know
This show won't last forever
We should just let Tone go but,

I wanna hear him
Nowcastin' weather for his son,
Talkin’ ‘bout the snacks he’s got, where his sunglasses have gone, tell me
And how he tells Mike exactly why he's always wrong
Oh why can't this show all summer go on?

(fade out)
I wanna see him
orange skin glowin' in the sun
he's got no hair pulled back
his Maui Jim's on.

Every time they play this song on the show I wonder why I haven't heard it jingled before... well, now I know it's because it was waiting for the perfect time for you to just crush it like this.
