    When the Cotillion arrived
    We threw out the television
    Model D 575
    Has custom flute presets
    And Harmony-Plus in addition

    Now for an arm and a leg
    We get three half-dozen beats to choose from
    So now we can pretend
    That there's an orchestra in the loungeroom

    I put the Genie Bass on
    So my left hand can play the choir
    With 16ft Diapason
    And Lowrey's patented Orchestral Symphonizer

    Banjo's great on repeat
    The kids want to play but they'll have to be patient
    The wife can't help tapping her feet
    It's a genuine home entertainment revelation

    State of the art
    (Hold the phone, it's so)
    State of the art
    [Listen to the difference!]

    (Oh my god, it's so)
    State of the art
    [By use of a computer]
    State of the art

    Now we don't want to go out
    When we could spend the night
    at home with the Cotillion
    Invite the neighbours around
    Start the bossanova beat and
    limbo from the living to the kitchen

    Enjoy the state of the art
    The Magic Swing Piano really is astounding
    Now we can't tell them apart
    But these amazing simulations end up
    sounding even better than the real thing

    State of the art
    (Hold the phone, it's so)
    [Computer controlled tone colour]
    State of the art
    [The marriage of music to computers is quite natural]
    (Oh my god, it's so)
    State of the art
    [It is time to hear the results]
