Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Why's my PC freeze?
I wish I understood Windows,
Software just really blows, oh, can you say re-install?

Shoddy PC's canned,
Optical fiber with a broken strand,
Screen keeps scrolling above,
With this pop-up from a real dumb spam.
Down goes my Windows,

I moved ya, and shaked ya, didn't mean to break ya,
I screwed ya, I bombed ya, just like that Osama,
It's fried-o from GIGO, maybe why it's so slow,
Resources low,
They get bad fast, what makes the fix so slow?
Mic-ro-soft really blows,
Reloadin' my Windows.

My P-C's weak, it's such an old antique.

There's no drive space free,
An unprotected regristry,
My oh my, gone awry, those little bits are history.

Spammed from some web site,
Emails won't transmit right,
My screen be lookin' awry,
I'm not a logical COMPAQ guy,
What's wrong with my Windows?

I moved ya, and shaked ya, didn't mean to break ya,
I screwed ya, I bombed ya, just like that Osama,
It's fried-o from GIGO, maybe why it's so slow,
Resources low,
They get bad fast, what makes the fix so slow?
Mic-ro-soft really blows,
Reloadin' my Windows.

This port's so limp, it makes my bandwidth gimp.

They can suck my nose,
I just erased all my Windows,
There's just one way to go,
Thinkin' now MAC's on the ball,
I'm done with Bill's Windows.

I moved ya, and shaked ya, didn't mean to break ya,
I screwed ya, I bombed ya, just like that Osama,
It's fried-o from GIGO, maybe why it's so slow,
Resources low,
They get bad fast, what makes the fix so slow?
Mic-ro-soft really blows,
Reloadin' my Windows.

I moved ya, and shaked ya, didn't mean to break ya,
I screwed ya, I bombed ya, just like that Osama,
It's fried-o from GIGO, maybe why it's so slow.

Ooo I'm really now quite done with these Windows.

Guy, I always enjoy your parodies; but I don't like computer parodies; still, great job.

I use Windows, I rely on Windows, and I enjoy bashing Windows. Oh what a wonderful, wonderful world, the "PC" ! 5's

Nice job with the parody; however, this was not one of the beach boys' 60s hits. It was from the 80s; it was like their "comeback" hit, if you will. BTW, I vote 555.

This parody reminds me of why I'm one of the 10 remaining Mac users on the planet.

aoid - Please forgive the blunder. How ghastly stupid of me not to have known that fact. Truth is I did a quick lookup on Webfitz.com before I submitted this and found that a song called Kokomo charted on the Canadian charts in 1961 by a group called Asia Minor. Don't know if it's the same song or not since Webfitz does not post lyrics for songs on the Canadian charts. Thanks for your vote and comment.

Royce - Thanks for your honesty. Not everyone likes geek stuff.

Pat Thanks for liking geek stuff.

JD - Thanks for enjoying bashing Windows.

John Thanks for your comment and I'm sure that Steve Jobs thanks you for using MAC and thanks JD for bashing Windows. At least he would have before he sold out.

DKTOS, but any Windows-bashing's good to me ;-)

Responding to Guy's response to Aoid: Actually, from what I researched, Kokomo was the group and Asia Minor was the name of the song. Chances are it's different from the 1988 Beach Boys song altogether.
