The Lyrics

What if I told you, it was 28K?
Would you still download, wait there all day?
I started at seven, now it's half past four
I think I am going to go crazy
As I sit and wish this would download now

A modem like this
Some downloads take forever
With a modem like this
Some people wait a lifetime
As they're downloading this
Oh I can't believe I'm still downloading this MP3
Some downloads take a lifetime
With a modem like this

Providers changing, but modems remain
Moving so slowly, killing my brain
Well, I may still be dialing, enduring this hell
As every single download tkaes forever
I scream out and wish I could afford DSL!

A modem like this
Some downloads take forever
With a modem like this
Some people wait a lifetime
As they're downloading this
Oh I can't believe I'm still downloading this MP3
Some downloads take a lifetime
With a modem like this

Could this be the slowest line of all?
I wonder if the phone lines outside did fall
So let me ask you this
Why do downloads take forever with a modem like this?

A modem like this
Some downloads take forever
With a modem like this
Some people wait a lifetime
As they're downloading this
Oh I can't believe I'm still downloading this MP3
Some downloads take a lifetime
With a modem like this

Oh,.no, like this

No no no no

Oh I can't believe I'm still downloading this MP3
Some downloads take a lifetime
With a modem like this

Oh,.like this.....

DSL is the way to go, worth the investment if you spend a few hours a day on the www. Funny song, Jared Man.

Heh, thanks hguys..I actually do use DSL, I jsut had an idea fior the parody and ran with it..very few parodies of mine are autobiographical..."Veronica (Diamond)" is, "Girl All the Fanboys Want" is quasi-true, but I've never had a rhino smash through my living room wall, tho :)

Sorry, Jared..before posting parody, I did a search of a "Moment Like This"...I saw "A Quotient Like This", but not your similar "Modem" version...(What date did you post it?)..Maybe it was my slowww modem.... (:

I already heard this song under another author's name. Did you copy his song?
Jeff Reuben - August 04, 2003 - Report this comment
I doubt Jared copied it, he's posted several songs here before, and he's good enough that he doesn't need to be copying anyone elses songs. It's also clear that zvoidx's song was written completely separate of Jared's version. And finally, Modem/Moment are close enough that I'm not surprised that multiple people came up with the same idea.

Thanks for bailing me out there, Jeff, the last thing I need is to be framed and wanted by the Parody Police.
