The Lyrics

It could be subtitled "Apology to a computer."
I'm not a perfect techie
there's many things I wish I didn't do
but I continue learning
I never should have run M.E. on you
and so I have to say before I go
that I just want you to know
I've found a reason to be
fixing PC's are to me
the reason to start over new
and the reason is blue

I'm sorry that I crashed you
that's something that I don't do every day
and all the pain I put you through
running windows M.E. every day
but I'm the one who ends up with the tears
that's why I need you to hear

I've found a reason for me
to wipe you it needs to be
the reason to start over new
and the reason is blue.
and the reason is blue
and the reason is blue
and the reason is blue

i'm not a perfect techie
I always run unsigned drivers on you
and so I have to say before I go
that I just want you to know

I've found that XP is real great
the side of me you didn't hate
the reason for all that I do
and the reason is blue

I've found a reason to show
the side of me you didn't know
the reason for all that I do
and the reason is blue.

I found this parody slightly more hilarious than the average viewer because you sound just like a friend of mine. About a month ago, he ran some kind of tests on my computer, and now I can't get past the windows screen onto the desktop! Anyway, good job!
