The Lyrics

If you don't receive my mail, it's 'cause my computer failed,
Mydoom just wiped out a hundred files.
A hundred files, a hundred files, a hundred files, a hundred files,
Mydoom just wiped out a hundred files.

I lost one, I lost two, I lost three, I lost four,
I lost 500 files from Mydoom.
500 files, 500 files, 500 files, 500 files
I lost 500 files from Mydoom.

Had to take my computer back, it doesn't work worth a darn,
Lord I can't keep on going without the 'Net
Without the 'Net, without the 'Net, without the 'Net, without the 'Net
Lord I can't keep on going without the 'Net.

If you don't receive my mail, it's 'cause my computer failed,
Mydoom just wiped out a hundred files.

Both funny and true!

Generally well-paced and well-rhymed (one missing syllable in the chorus is too small a flaw to lower my score). Good choice of subject too, considering all the virus scares that float around online. Lord, that's 1...Lord, that's 2...Lord, that's 3...Lord, that's 4... Lord, that's 5 points you've earned across the board! :-)

Well done, mate. I laughed so hard I gave myself a stitch! So very true, and so very annoying.
