The Lyrics

(spoken:)
Was she really hooking up with him?
There she is, let's query her.
Betty, is that Jimmy's mousepad you're holding?...
Mm-hm...
Gee, it must be fun chatting with him!
Is he meetin you after work today?...
Nuh-uh...
By the way, how'd you meet him?

I met him through his Myspace blog
I PM'd him, he PM'd me
We traded jpegs (Oh, we see!)
The techie I fell for--The Leader on the Mac!
(SFX: bleep boop beep, buzzzzzz!)

Our boss was always putting him down (down! down!)
He said that Steve Jobs was a worthless clown
(He was mean and he teased that Steve Jobs was a worthless clown!)
Jim gave me his nice mouse pad
And I thought he was rad!
Well, I-M-H-O--the Leader on the Mac!
(SFX again)

One day our boss said, "It's time to renew
We're going with PCs for the work that we do"
(The boss, he's so cruel, a reconfig to PCs is what he'll do)
Jim's screwed here, do you know why?
He'll have to recertify!
I'm sorry they canned you--the Leader on the Mac!
(SFX again)

(spoken:)
He cleaned out his desk, and then my C Drive
--He didn't want our love notes to show
As he walked away, blowing a kiss goodbye,
I begged him, "please don't go!"
What was his password? I'll never know
(No no no no no...)
Log Out! Log Out! Log Out! Log Out!
(SFX: The system CRASHES!)

Since he was jobless, what did he do?
He fried the drives in the server room!
The boss was caught unaware
Our data's erased, but I don't care
You really did show them! You Leader on the Mac!
(general computer SFX again)

(ooooh....)
The program's been hacked. Data's gone!
The program's been hacked. Data's gone!
The program's been hacked. Data's gone!

(SFX modems, Microsoft bleeps, bleeps, IE Explorer opening tones, the Intel tones, etc. fadeout....END PROGRAM)

This is going to be a long post because I could wax lyrical about this all day. This is my fave of yours ever, Agri. I LOVE parodies that stick close to the original storyline, but reimagine it with different characters. You nailed it big time, buddy!
1) The SFX instuctions were inspired, and helped me play the song in my head, so thanks for that.
2)"Log Out! Log Out! Log Out! Log Out!" had me stifling a guffaw...
3)The idea of a rebel computer nerd is just inately funny, but you cranked up the humour
4)You've got to find a female vocalist and record this!
5)I smell something gold heading your way next month
555+++

I'm reinstalling Kristof's old program... (Even though I hate Macs with an undieing passion)

Faaaaaaantastic! I agree with Kristof that the idea of the same basic storyline with different characters is genius. As NSYNC would say: "It ain't no lie - you get 555!"

This song is always the best to actually record. I fell in love with Spaff's, and I say, I say you should record it. Nothing is quite like an awesome nerdy/computer inspired parody. 5-5-5

Awesome job on a deceptively difficult song, Aggy! You really nailed this one, and I can tell a lot of effort went into its creation. You should record this (get the new Helium processor, I'm sure you'll sound great...). 555

This round I can only judge writing, nothing is making me laugh of late, so good job on that end, and I STILL don't see how a song about recording mp3s and downloads isn't technology--but I digress.

(Ages) I completely ditto Kristof's comments. Very funny, and I'd love to hear a recording and hearing a harddrive skid to a halt. Wait...didn't I do a song on that? :-)

(SOTM) Wow... What can I say? My favorite line was the one about Steve Jobs being a worthless clown. The iPod is good proof of this claim, too. Nice update on a famous I-loved-him-now-he's-dead oldie. 555
McKludge - June 14, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) I had forgotten how cheesy the OS is. A mousepad would have to be the least romantic gift, ranking up there with giving her an appliance. 555

(SOTM) my favourite line was "He cleaned out his desk, and then my C Drive" - I hope she got a dinner out of him first - lol - very funny stuff Ag - great use of the OS - 555

(SOTM) See above...oh that's right, my comments for this round were lost due to the crash. DAMNITT!! Well, if you managed to read it, you know what I said. If you didn't, I LOVE IT...though I don't like Macs.

SOTM - I think I like this one as much as Spaff's "Leader of Iraq" without the irritating glass breakage sound clips. By all means, please record it! :)

Could have sworn I commented on this one... definitely voted as the vote didn't take. Loved the premise, beautifully executed with some wonderful lines.

(SOTM) So many songs that I actually had to learn to read a parody this month--of course someone told me you are the KING of obscure parodies, I guess this masterpiece proves that point. . .So well executed on a song prior to this contest (not to mention artist) I had never heard of

(SOTM) I can't possibly heap any more praise on this than I already have in my first comment. This is my all-time fave of yours, Agri. Solid gold, mate; solid gold.

That was awesome,see above, the OS is slow thouhg, warning : Don t pace it with Leader of the Laundromat

SOTM - Great one! I hate Macs as much as the next guy, but this parody is excellent. Nice job on working the spoken, sung and sound effect portions together.

ABC: Great work! I've only heard the OS a couple times before this, but you did a really good job!
Matthias - June 04, 2011 - Report this comment
I still hate Macs and Steve Jobs with his iEverything... But at least it's not the iPad. Very awesome parody! This is one that's an Aggy classic (hopefully Dave will record this one for you! I would love to hear it!)
Wild Child JIN - June 05, 2011 - Report this comment
I'm just the opposite, I hate PC and Windows, but the only thing I hate about Steve Jobs, is that he integrated PC with Mac! That's like integrating half lead and half gold. Great parody though 5's! They should never have sacked the Mac!
Wild Child JIN - June 05, 2011 - Report this comment
I must apologize about my last comment, according to your parody, if I understand it correctly, Steve Jobs was against the integration of Mac and PC and was fired for it, so I was wrong to accuse him of doing it. That's if I'm not mistaken.

I can't say see above, because I am far more familiar with TOS than I was when I first read this. . .namely because I have since seen Grease. . .I agree with the sentiment . . .I am not a fan of Mac for several reasons. They are happy to be the high priced alternative to the PC, I am cheap--sorry--but I am. Their commercials make it seem like you can't do things on a PC that compare to Mac, well Lady GaGa has produced album art using Microsoft Word, major YouTube videos have been made using Microsoft Movie Maker, Excel is practically required in my college courses, and I am scripting just fine on my PC, so I can't help it, I'm not a fan of the Mac. . .though I do hate internet explorer, I'm all FireFox there, and Opera is my second choice--Internet Explorer I keep for those sites that aren't multi-browser proof only. . .oh yeah Agri, good parody
