The Lyrics

I don't know what you're tryin' to say - I'm tired of those abbreviations.
What's f.a.q. and a.k.a.? I'm tired of those abbreviations.
Is it some kind of secret code? I'm tired of those abbreviations.
Or is it the futuristic mode? I'm tired of those abbreviations.

Oy, those abbreviations!
Don't dig abbreviations, Bub'bla!

Why must you truncate words? Enough of those abbreviations!
Such lazy talk is for the birds. Enough of those abbreviations!
I'm not tryin' to cause a big sensation. Trash those darn abbreviations.
I'm just sick of those abbreviations. Oy givalt abbreviations!!

Lose those abbreviations!
No more abbreviations, Boychick!

DKTOS, sux 1000s. Actually, I do know the original song, and while this doesn't suck, it's not exactly one of the better parodies of my generation -- capitalized or otherwise.
