The Lyrics

Sittin' here at computer desk, checking my email
Looking for an email from my friend
Windows closed a browser down, just before it loads
Error right after I clicked on "send"
So I put a CD into my dusty old D drive
And was singing along while wondering what to do
Then my sound just went away
And I still aint got no sound today
Even though I tried everything I knew

Geek is just another word for what I wish I was
Then I could fix my computer for free
Fixing it would be easy then, it wouldn't cost a wad
Tweaking it would be good enough for me
Good enough for me and 98 SE

From the downloading movies to the songs that I shared
98 was there for all my downloads.
Sitting right beside me Lord, through all kinds of fun
and every day it kept be from being bored
Then somewhere in BIOS, Lord I really made a mistake
It wont boot up now and I think I broke it
Now I'd trade off my old husband, for a single computer tech
If he could fix 98 properly

Geek is just another word for what I wished I was
Wishing that someone would come teach me
Fixing it would be easy then, it wouldn't cost a wad
Tweaking it would be good enough for me
Good enough for me and 98 SE.
la la la la....

This is really good. I can really appreciate this one being a computer professional. Very nice job to a very great song. Come on folks give a look at this one and give this lady a vote and a comment. This one is worth it.

Really fun song. 98 sure is a barrel of monkeys. Back about 2 years ago, my 98 just decided one day that it didn't like the A drive. So my A drive didn't work for two months, after which it became bulemic. Whenever a floppy was inserted, the drive would just throw out all the data on it. Keep 'em coming, Shawna.

Nice one, Shawna, triple five - though it's worth mentioning that Kris Kristofferson was the original performer.
