The Lyrics

Since I am the_got_mac, I need a theme song. Here it is.
I see a Windows and I wish it were a Mac
No other OS works, I wish it were a Mac
Mac users can do things that 98 is quite unable;
That is because Macintosh is so much more stable!

I see a Linux and I wish it were a Mac
I tried to use it but then I went right back
I see the people cussing at those darned machines
Unfortunately, they are looking at blue screens

I see BeOS and I wish it were a Mac
I think all Windows machines are using crack
I really hate XP; Id rather use Mac 8
I remember the clone era, boy wasn't it great!

If you use Windows your screen will always be blue
If you use Macintosh this wont happen to you
If you try hard enough to switch your OS
I'm sure you'll find Macintosh to be the best

I see NeXT OS and I wish it were a Mac
No other OS works, I wish it were a Mac
It isn't hard to use, even if you don't know jack
It doesn't matter; your computer wont be hacked


I wanna see you, Use a Mac
Mac is here, everywhere!
Don't wanna see Windows, it'll drain your money dry
I wanna see you using, using, using, using Mac, yeah!

The Author here... Yes, it has been submitted before. Actually, that is one of my friends from school's version of it. I, however, had the original idea, just took longer to implement it. Sorry for the confusion, Aaron.
