The Lyrics

I've been wanting to get in on the "404" parody craze, and I wondered about using this one, since it's short and wouldn't take a whole lot of effort to parody. (I wasn't sure how much I could write on it, since I haven't had a lot of trouble with 404's) Late one night, I had a quick burst of creativity, and this is the result.

For the purposes of judging thy pacing, the lyrics lieth here

Of course, if you're looking for a parody on this subject that's REALLY good, check out Guy DiRito's "Unsubscribe This 404"
Gum up the works, come on!

Yeah, it's no thrill,
I'd like to kill
The one who designed these links, yeah
Trying one;
Says the loading's done
What's next you can predict, yeah

Hey! I'm steaming!
Hey! I'm seething!
Mo-dem screeching!
Gum up the works, come on

Sick, I'm feeling
All I'm seeing's
Error readings
Gum up the works, come on

Face is red,
Bang my head
On my desktop keyboard, yeah
"Useless Re-
ject Link" be
What "URL" stands for, yeah

Hate, I'm feeling
Not revealing
Page I'm seeking
Gum up the works, come on

Hey! I'm steaming!
Hey! I'm seething!
Mo-dem screeching!
Gum up the works, come on

NO! (x12)

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, they gum up the works!
