The Lyrics

I'm sure this is how the whole phenomenon started...and why no one else should continue this trend. Original Song
I work for a comp’ny, for a comp’ny, for a comp’ny
Everyday is like the one before…
My life, it’s so boring, it’s so boring, it’s so boring
I don’t know what to do anymore
Sit near my computer, my computer, my computer
Just trying to entertain myself
I just need to let go, need to let go, need to let go
I have an idea, feel impelled...

I will walk right past Barb
And I’ll make a work of art
Sit down, then I press start
A copy of my, copy of my
Oh man, it’s so much fun
On the desk of everyone
So they all can see my bum...
A copy of my, copy of my

I am such a genius, such a genius, such a genius
Now I know what to do ev’ryday
And all I know for certain, know for certain, know for certain
That no one’s gonna know that it was me!

Dozens now coat the walls
Even in bathroom stalls!
Your computer desktop
A copy of my, copy of my
Co-workers see and run
Their eyeballs must surely burn
My boss don’t know who to warn
A copy of my, copy of my

Sent one to the Mayor, to the Mayor, to the Mayor
Even put one on a billboard too!
“He begs for attention, for attention, for attention”
No one knows who the butt belongs to

I bought my own Xerox
Even do this at my house
Leave them on the sidewalks
A copy of my, copy of my
I do all this just for fun
Don’t mean to hurt anyone
I can’t be the only one
A copy of my, copy of my

(Then my stomach just dropped)
Then my stomach just dropped
(Looks like I’m not too smart)
Looks like I’m not too smart
(Something that I forgot)
Something that I forgot
The copy of my, copy of my, copy of my, copy of my...
(Way back when, college year one)
Way back when, college year one
(Oh man, I was really drunk)
Oh man, I was really drunk
(I thought that it would be fun)
But I must really dumb...
Name tattoo on my, tattoo on my, tattoo on my, TATTOO ON MY!

This is a great parody of a traditional gag. I liked it, never heard the original song before. It must be one of their brand new ones. Still this was pretty fantastic, you sick pervert! lol

(Artistry) Took a classic prank and brought it to a strange new level. Props sir, props. Autobiographical? LOL!

(Artistry) The OS sounded more like Kraftwek than NIN, but that's just me. No butts about it, this was fantastic! 555!
