The Lyrics

Computer miseries using an old Hays modem.
Got modem Hays in my 'sheen
Lately downloads they don't seem so clean
This ain't funny, don't know the whys
'Scuse me while my system fries

Modem Hays, pull 'em down
Norton AV says a virus found!
Searching through system history
What's become of my database integrity?

Helpdesk! Helpdesk!

Modem Hays downloads and trys
'scuse me while my system dies
No data's flowin', flowin' my bad!
Takes 'til tomorrow to change the screen a tad

This blows!
C'mon you know!
Fix me
Fix me

As a lover of both Hendrix and techie parodies, I enjoyed this one: "'Scuse me while my system fries"... very good :-) (though I think you'll find Hayes modems are spelt with an 'E')

System "fries"? Does it make your computer "shake"?
