The Lyrics

Computers... tempermental at the best of times, but imagine having to physically re-build your computer?!?
Let's get restarted in here

And the screen keeps freezing freezing
and freezing freezing and freezing freezing
and freezing freezing and freezing freezing
and freezing freezing and freezing freezing and

On this comp set, there's no damn reset
So when it breaks itself, you disconnect
We've got 4 minutes before the whole thing resets
Lose the internet and all of your work resets
Follow the user manual, this things so hard to handle
Follow the cable and disconnect it from that thingy-fangle
'Cause when the lights out, the whole thing just wipes out
I can't believe how I paid the full price out
Monitor just turns off, tower starts to burn out
Acts up from the CD mouth

Ev'rybody, ev'rybody
Let's break into it
It's not that stupid
Let's restart it
Let's restart it
Let's restart it

Got to restart it, how?
Got to restart it somewhere
Got to restart it now
I must restart it in here
Help me restart it please
Got to restart it some way
Got to restart it now
Got to restart it to-day

Lost control
Got a big pole
Next thing you know, people, I broke it all
I lost my head
And laced into it
The mouse and keyboard,
And then re-booted
Get restarted, this is stupid
Don't worry about it, if it don't work just boot it
Step by step from the 'puter guidebook
Pic by pic 'cause the words confuse me
Lost a bit now the whole thing's goosed and
This computer is impossible you can't even re-boot it

Ev'rybody, ev'rybody
Let's buy a new kit
It's stupid
Get restarted, get restared
Get restarted

I can't restart it, why?
So now I gotta buy more
It should restart itself
But now I can't take much more
My 'puters stupid, hah
It's such a useless machine
It's so retarded, yeh
Not the comp of my dreams

Freezing freezing and crashing crashing
Come on y'all [not running running just beeping beeping beeping]

Let's get new parts
Let's get new parts from here
Let's get new parts
Let's get new parts from here
Let's get new parts
Let's get new parts from here

Aargh-aargh-aargh-argh-argh-argh-argh-argh
Argh-argh-argh-argh-argh-argh-argh-argh

Let's get in
Pass the drill
Aplicate and the new comp smell
Don't
Lose the book, we'll have to look
And make sure you don't drop any goddamn nuts
Pass the wires, connect E20
Count up all the screws, have we got twenty?
Get busy
Pass that bit
Make sure that cable's safe and then stick
Come on, plug in and load it
Let's get started, let's connect it

Ev'rybody, ev'rybody
There's nothing to it,
So let's reboot it
Get restarted, get restarted
Get restarted

We can restart it, now
We can restart it in here
So lets restart it now
Lets get restarted, you hear?
Its now restarted, yes
It's now restarted my dear
So its restarted now
'Cause we re-parted it here

Let's say woo-hoo
Aha
Let's say woo-hoo
In here
Let's say woo-hoo
Aha
Let's say woo-hoo
In here
Let's say woo-hoo
Aha
Let's say woo-hoo
In here

Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha
Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha

Freezing freezing and beeping beeping
Not running running or starting starting...

Tough OS, nice job for the most part. You rhymed 'reset' with 'reset' and 'more' with 'more' a couple of times, but it's still better than the original lyrics. Also, I think the problem with computers is they really ARE that stupid. They're great 'cause they do just what we tell them to do, and they're horrible for the same reason. Fave line: "'Cause when the lights out, the whole thing just wipes out"

Wow, i remembered exactly how the whole song went! That makes things a lot easier. ummm... yeh, that was good. The pacing was great, but i agree with 2nz, there were a few times when you rhymed words with the same word (if that makes sense). ie. 'E20' and 'twenty'. Overall it was alright, but unfortunately i can't empathise with your technological situations. Whenever there's a problem with my computer, i leave it to my brother to fix it!

Thank you to everybody for commenting. I was actually dreading the votes due to the pacing, you know, 'did i get it right, will they know how to say it?' etc, but so far so good...

Computers are quite faulty. Excellent parody of a song by the Black Eyed Peas.
