"Holding Out For An E-mail"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Works best if sung by Strong bad.^ ^
Where have all the hotmail gone
And where's open outlook?
Where's the well-known spam filter
To fight the rising spams?
Isn't there a Gmail upon 2GB space?
Late at night I read E-mails trying to reply them all!

I need a E-mail!
I'm holding out for a E-mail 'til the end of the night
It's gotta be large
And it's gotta be fast
And it's gotta have loads of MB.
I need a E-mail!
I'm holding out for a E-mail 'til the morning light
It's should be famous
And it's gotta be good
And it's got to have Spam filters!

Somewhere after midnight
In my own E-mail account
Somewhere that's just far away
There's someone spamming me to death
Racing on the viruses,and sending ad-wares
It's gonna take a good program just to delete those virus!


Up where the Gmail meets challengers above!
Out where the Yahoo adds MB!
I would swear that there's someone somewhere
Spamming me!

Through Gmail,Hotmail and Outlook!
And yahoo and much more!
I can feel his approach
Like the data in my comp!

Pat Benatar..60s?! I don't think so. Try 80's. On the plus side, this is a great parody. I shall spam it with a perfect vote of 5,5,5!!

This is by Bonnie Tyler, not Pat Benatar, and it's from 1984, not the 60s.
