The Lyrics

This song was the first Australian single to hit number one in America since Savage flippin' Garden way back in 2001, and it's stayed their for eight weeks. I find that inspiring. Therefore, I wrote this! Enjoy!
Ex-user:
Now and then I think of when I was a newbie
I made a conscious effort to fit and belong
Kept the 1337-sp34k to a minimum
I always used the forum search button
Repressed my urges to flip out and type "lol boobies"

But the other posters, they were, how to put it, asses
Always ignored my friend requests, all my requests
They flamed me hard cause I was so confused
'Bout an in-joke that they all refused
To explain to me cause I was a "clueless loser"

So I made my choice to just log out
I'll log back in never, cause they
Treated me like garbage
I just got tired of their guff
They expected me to know things
That aren't on their FAQ
Posting clever things like "n00b u blow"
Couldn't deal with their excessive
Levels of pure madness
I guess that I don't need that though
Now it's just a forum where I used to post
Just a stupid forum where I used to post
Now it's just a forum where I used to post

Moderator:
Now and then I review all the posts that you reported
Now I've really read them, I now know that you weren't in the wrong
Too caught up in the clique that day
I deleted all your threads away
Now I feel like a silly sod
Now I'm thinking about leaving that dumb forum that I have to mod

Ex-user:
Well, you could've backed me up, you know
Kinda obvious they ganged up
On me just for funsies
They soon moved on to harder stuff
I woke up to find one morning
My account was hacked
You're supposed to be impartial, bro
Turned a blind eye to your posse
'Cause they called you awesome
I don't need all that bollocks, so
Now it's just a forum where I used to post

A forum
(I used to post)
Old forum
(Now it's just a forum where I used to post)

Decorum
(Was lacking, so)
That forum
(Now it's just a forum where I used to post)

(I used to post)
(That I used to post)
(I used to post)
A forum
Not based on a real experience. I decided not to stick to heavily to the original rhyme scheme, as that's kinda screwed me over in the past

Well played TCOP. Great title sub and carried well throughout. Especially liked your use of 1337 sp34k, 'requests, all my requests' and 'just for funsies'.

I could identify with this because as a noob I also had that first forum where I tried to fit in.

Very well done, I can't believe this is the first Australian hit in that long. Lots of funny lines, "lol boobies" made me laugh a little too much than I'd like to admit :)

I didn't realize that Goyte was an Australian band! That's pretty cool! They're actually coming to Orlando where I'm staying at pretty soon and I want to meet them because they are such a cool band. I love this original song and your parody of it was pretty rad too!

(SOTM) Well thank goodness you still post on this forum! Great work TCOP!

SOTM--When this OS came out I kind of hated it with everything that I am...but one day I realized that I'm a little addicted to it. It's ridiculous. I love that you parodied it. I'm working on something with this one for next month...but for now...this is my favorite Gotye parody! haha.

As much as I love the OS, I wasn't able to fully appreciate this spoof...just because I don't really frequent forums all that often. However, I still think it was funny and well written. Nice job!

SOTY...I feel for the protagonist in this parody...I've been there. Still dig this on the whole, too!
