The Lyrics

RIP Steve Jobs (October 5th, 2011)
I am a part of the Mac Mob
So I'll have to sob over Steve Jobs!
He made the products that we want!

I rock to music on my iPod!
I gave a wad to that Steve Jobs!
To Apple snobs he was our God!

He died of cancer and now we’re so sad
His days on Earth are done
Machines he hurled were so freakin’ rad
Buttons and knobs made my heart throb
I’ll miss Steve Jobs a bunch…

He changed cell phones to make them fun
Play Angry Birds while I call mom
Goodbye Steve Jobs, He was ‘Da Bomb!”

We lost our hero of our Macintosh
Bill Gates guffaws while our tears drop
Loved Final Cut Pro it gets props!

He’s the inventor of the modern fad
With speakers that sense touch
My mind’s a swirl because he’s iDead
So long Steve Jobs this really sucks!
Made a few bucks and he…

Did he die or is this like Tron?
I’ll miss Steve Jobs now that he’s gone!
Into the Grid or in Heaven!
I’ll miss Steve Jobs because he’s gone!
We’ll have withdraws no inventions!
So long Steve Jobs he has passed on!
Even his flops made us his pawns!
We’ll miss Steve Jobs…

Doesn't pace to original hit by Bobby Fuller Four, used in spins by yours truly, but never heard this version (or of this band -- that age thing), so will trust that the pacing matches theirs. "Idead" was clever enough not to be sick, but a tribute.

Don't get the line, "We’ll have withdraws no inventions", but 555 for a fast and timely tribute to a great pioneer. ... oh, and don't forget the point someone brought up: If the current "Soak the Rich" people had their way, Jobs would have retired when he reached the target soak-level, and we'd have lost everything since.

It's supposed to mean: "We'll go with withdrawl when there's no new inventions being released". (But I couldn't really fit that whole thing in there). Not exactly my strongest parody but I tried to get this thing done in one night after hearing the news.

Matthias - Good job, and thank heaven the departed had an easily used name! Steve W. will present more of a challenge. ;D

@ OMR and Matthias:
"Wozniak" is easy, with the right OS:
"Maniac", from the 1980 horror film and the 1983 doofy hit, "Flashdance". Probably recent enough for Matthias to K it.

Matty, that's a gift from me to you. Go for it. (Leave me a comment @ any of mine if you do. Not here much, but do check comments every couple of days.)
