The Lyrics

Whether it's a simple mouse, your laptop's power supply or some kinda gimmicky dancing Santa, we've all had trouble plugging things into things. Here's me venting my frustration. Enjoy!
Sometimes they fit in just fine, all snugly
But most of the time they get on my nerves (eh-eh, eh-eh)
Act like they're incompatible, but they're compatible (oh, yeah-eah)
Incompatible then they're compatible (oooooh whoo!)

It gets me annoyed (really annoyed)
I got a thing that really needs recharging for sure
But hear this, boy (just hear this, boy)
The connector design is poor
Damn thing has no consistency
Plug once, it fails, other way, it fails, first way was right, geez
Charging now, don't worry 'bout that
But I'm still pissed
I know y'all agree with me

A problem I (always) have with USBs
Won't work with me
Will it fit? It's random
A pain, you see (face palm)
Mark to tell the right way
Ha-ha-hard to see (oh, yeah-eah)
Oh-oh-oh-oh (bullshit) know they're compatible plugs (seem compatible) oh oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh act like incompatible plugs (oooooh whoo!)

'Twould be nice if all plugs could plug in anywhere
Anywhere, anywhere (gah)
Multiple designs ensure that they can't plug
Anywhere, anywhere (gah)
Geeks can wax technical until the sun goes down
It won't ever change the fact it's a dumb-as-shit thing
Last week I bought something that would fix my life, but I didn't
Have a hole the thing could fit in
All that I want is a plug that fits all
Great for me, won't have to juggle USBs
I know USB hubs exist, not dumb, mind
But it'd cut down on cords, sweet
Get me?

This multi-plug-type thing is shitty
If you ask me
Slot number's limited
That sounds dirty (uh-huh)
Point still stands, it sucks bricks
Y-Y-You must agree (oh, yeah-eah)
Oh-oh-oh-oh (bullshit) hate incompatible plugs (hate's understandable, it's shite) oh oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh yeah, hate incompatible plugs (oooooh whoo!)

And what results from the above reason
That plugs piss me right off, it's when I've plugged all sixteen (all dem)
Thousand plugs in, it looks like a snake pit
And I swear that all those cords are out to get me (watch out)
Whether they trip me so that I fall on my bum
Or get tangled when I look away for a sec, wanna scream
If you tell me "Why don't you switch to wireless?"
What, and drain cash on batt'ries?
And besides, the signal's always buggered
Will the strength be consistent? Never
Not much to do with plugs, I'll admit, but it's still bollocks (gah)
And if you ask me, that's all that matters

Listing reasons why plugs are shitty (hey-ee)
And thus it seems
Cords are a part of them (oo-oo-ah-ah)
Makes sense to me
Why I am complainin' ('tis why I'm complainin')
A-A-About them, geez
Oh-oh-oh-oh (makes my brain-thing hurt) it's understandable, bud (quite understandable) oh oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh yeah, these double-damnable plugs (oooooh whoo!)

Cords, some too long
And wind around couch legs, it's sucky-y-y-y
But so-o-ome are too sho-ort
With electronics, I'm so unlu-ucky-y-y-y-y-y
Hey-ee, goddamn, oo-oo-ah-ah
Ev'rything 'bout these plugs are shite
All right (oooooh whoo!)

Whether the plug and hole's shaped diff'rent (wooooooooo-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Adaptor, please (fit, you fool)
Or it won't work prop'ly (eh)
Consistency (eh) (ain't here, bro)
I just wanna head-desk (head slammed into my desk)
I-I-Irritates me (rage is wild)
Oh-oh-oh-oh yeah, these incompatible plugs (unbelievable, so shite)
Oh-oh-oh-oh yeah, these incompatible plugs (oooooh whoo!)

The manufacturing is shitty (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Untested, geez (broken tool)
If you can't tell, I'm pissed (too subtle too tell)
It ain't just me (not alone)
Tech nerds are united
W-W-We all decree (anger's high) (oh, yeah-eah)
Oh-oh-oh-oh (oh-oh) hate incompatible plugs (so impractical) oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh (oh-oh oh-oh) damn incompatible plugs (oooooh whoo!)

Oh-oh-oh (they're incompatible, our hate is rational)
Oh-oh-oh (it's understandable, they're incompatible)
Oh-oh-oh (we're not irrational, our rage is palpable)
Woah-woah-oh-woah-woah-oh, incompatible plugs (the one thing that unites us nerds)
Woah-woah-oh-woah-woah-oh, incompatible plugs

BTW, original song? Why for you make song about bonking all kinda ladies yet only name-check American cities in the chorus? For shame. Would've been cool if each chorus had it's own three cities referenced, or is that too much forethought and intelligence to expect from Pitbull and Chris Brown?

I never really seem to have this problem but apparently you do and expressing with us your issue with these wicked plugs made this song pretty funny.

Lordy that was wordy, 10 stanzas,,,I got bored, sorry buddy. I wish you didnt rely so much on cuss words, I said before, it's not that it offends me, but it's just a sign of little creativity.

It does happen when you have to deal with may plugs at the same time. SOmetimes you could never find the right one for hours, eek!

Apparently, this is a much bigger problem than I realized! After reading the title (which is a PERFECT sub, btw) I thought you were going to go the more "tourist traveling to various countries but can't plug anything in because the outlets are all different" route (which you touched on a little bit). Overall, not bad, but the length of the OS and the pretty scarce source material took some points off for me.

(Artistry) you definitely ran out if steam and stretched the concept as far as it could go, unfortunately it got stretched too thin. The initial idea I thought worked well, the title sub was very nice, but you didn't give me enough substance to remain interested. I also agree with Aggy, I really try to a avoid using swear words for rhymes, it's an easy out for rhyming. I've mentioned this to you before though, it's just your style and I respect that, but it eliminates some comedy IMO.
