The Lyrics

This song is about DOS, and the most famous error it gives. Enjoy!
I installed DOS on my hard drive
I upgraded to version 2.1
I'm tired of readin' all the same things
I wish it would give me a brand new error

And Bad Command or File Name
Bad Command or File Name is covering the screen
Bad Command or File Name it is making me green
It's not like this, dumb thing works
Don't try to tell me a different story
And If I'm not mistaken
I'll do some computer breakin'
And I don't Know
How to use
This forsaken object on my desk
I've got 5 words in my head
Bad command or file name, yeah!

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Oh. No.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Oh. No.

There's no way I could know that
I've seen every help file that there is
I must be so bad
There's many times where I damn near killed this

Bad Command or File Name is covering the screen
Bad Command or File Name it is making me green
It's not like this, dumb thing works
Don't try to tell me a different story
And If I'm not mistaken
I'll do some computer breakin'
And I don't Know
How to use
This forsaken object on my desk
I've got 5 words in my head
Bad command or file name, yeah!

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Oh. No.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Oh. No.

I deleting DOS off my hard drive
I'm goin' over to Linux OS.

And Bad Command or File Name
Bad Command or File Name
Bad Command or File name is covering the screen
Bad Command or File name it is making me green
It's not like this, dumb thing works
Don't try to tell me a different story
And If I'm not mistaken
I'll do some computer breakin'
And I don't Know
How to use
This forsaken object on my desk
I've got 5 words in my head
Bad command or file name

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Are we havin' fun yet?
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Are we havin' fun yet?
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Are we havin' fun yet?
Yeah! Yeah!
