The Lyrics

Your system's headed for a crash
Your database will turn to trash
You'll have more techs out on the floor
You ain't gonna surf the net no more
Hackety Hack
A password crack

Your hard drive's runnin' out of room
You'll hear that disk crash with a boom
You'll have more garbage on your site
You'll be a fixin this all night
Hackety Hack
You been jacked

Now they just whacked your hard drive's FAT
Your mem-or-y will just go splat
And all your spirals just went flat
Dump out the log and bring up the stats
Hackety Hack
Poor sad sack

They got them in, their dirty hooks
Hackers are yo, way worse than crooks
Go get the backups stored offsite
You'll be back up on Friday night
Hackety Hack
Fade to black

Hackety Hack Hackety Hack
Hackety Hack Hackety Hack
Hackety Hack My achin' back!

Funny and true! I got an immediate headache thinking of getting a PC up after hackers get their hooks into it.

Absolutely great. Don't know what else to say, other than I'm looking at all your other parodies now.

I've seen a lot of computer parodies, even written a couple myself ("4-0-4" and "I'm Still Off the Net"); but this one kicks butt! Great song/subject match, cute plays on the original's a 555 GB backup drive for your trouble!

Thanks Ingie, It was one of my earliest parodies. I had only been submitting for about two weeks when this posted. How did you come to dig this up anyway?

Phil Alexander had written a song parody with the same title and casually mentioned yours, so I surfed over to check it out. Techie parodies are some of my favorites around here...:)
