Parody Song Title:

"Three-Fingered Salute"

Parody Written by:

Phil Alexander

The Lyrics

Three-fingered salute, three-fingered salute
To shut your computer down
You use it to login, logout or reboot
That Wonderful One Two Three-fingered salute

Back in the days of old Microsoft DOS
To do it meant all of your data was lost
With Win95 came a trick that was neat
The task list popped up on Ctrl+Alt+Delete

Three-fingered salute, three-fingered salute
To shut your computer down
You use it to login, logout or reboot
That Wonderful One Two Three-fingered salute

When Microsoft came up with Windows NT
It worried the hell out of poor folks like me
My new PC startup would never complete
Because I would not hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete

Three-fingered salute, three-fingered salute
To shut your computer down
You use it to login, logout or reboot
That Wonderful One Two Three-fingered salute

Using one finger is thought rude as hell
And even two fingers is quite crude as well
But you can resolve any on-line dispute
Simply by giving a three-fingered salute

Three-fingered salute, three-fingered salute
To shut your computer down
You use it to login, logout or reboot
That Wonderful One Two Three-fingered salute
That Wonderful One Two Three-fingered salute

Excellent Phil. I had trouble doing the old 'ALT CRTL DEL' for quite a while myself when NT came out. It was something you only did as a last resort before. Don't know why MS ever did that. And hey, this is getting spooky, this is the second day in a row we were on the same wave length with our songs.
Very original and one of my favorite categories for parody.

Yes, Guy - any wonder Diva got confused on your U-S-E-Rs parody? I'll be surprised if we're on the same wavelength for the next one, though... unless you've got anything on the Trojan war planned?

You got me on this one. I can only imagine what a 'Trojan' war would be about. Hmmm.

Sorry, Phil & Guy......I think you both did an excellent parody.

No worries, Diva... Guy - no, nothing to do with viruses - you know the one, where Paris ran off with Helen and Menelaus (her husband) went off to get her back again... but there was this horse thing involved too, which is where Trojan viruses get their name from, so I guess there is a connection after all.

I think Diva's still tipsy from the Rum and Mai Tai's. She never could hold her liquor.

Wasn't thinking on those lines. Guess you know where my mind has been lately.
