The Lyrics

Can't you read the f*cking manual?
I should never have to take another call thats quite like this
yes we did supply the manual.
You should read it once yourself and not be a pain in the arse
now you'll make me late for lunch
And I don't know how you've made it through life so far

have you now thrown out the manual
been an hour and a minute since you connected to me
I would read the f*cking manual
'stead of calling me tonight and making me just want to die
And you'll call us up again
The poorness of your questions always make us cry

you must call us up here every night
we all think 'sh*te' - The Manual
think how easy life would really be
if you would read - The Manual
Though I never get the calls I choose
I won't forget
I'll hang up if I get you again
or might just send The Manual

now you will downplay the manual
it's full of language you never seem to really understand
Can't you read the f*cking manual?
Do you still believe the CD drive is where coffee mugs stand?
I can see you seem surprised
when we laugh when you say it's hard to understand

you must call us up here every night
we all think 'sh*te' - The Manual
think how easy life would really be
if you would read - The Manual
Though I never get the calls I choose
I won't forget
I'll hang up if I get you again
or might just send The Manual

you must call us up here every night
we all think 'sh*te' - The Manual
think how easy life would really be
if you would read - The Manual
Though I never get the calls I choose
I won't forget
I'll hang up if I get you again
or might just send The Manual
yes, I'll hang myself cause it's you again
please com-prehend The Manual

couple of bozo's scored you low, but I think this is well done and funny

I agree with Royce. You've done a fine parody.
neminem - September 09, 2003 - Report this comment
actually, it appears just ONE bozo. Most definitely a bozo, though; this was quite good.

Brilliant concept... why didn't I think of this?
Darren - September 10, 2003 - Report this comment
do you think you could record it so we can add it to our on hold music?

You had me from the first line. Now I know what the F in RTFM stands for - Fernando.

LOL ! Ohhh this is too funny!
Ingeborg - September 07, 2004 - Report this comment
With the profanity toned down, this would make great on-hold music for a tech-support desk. Spot-on pacing (though rhyming "far" with "arse" was a bit of a stretch), and good choice of topic: straight 5's!

Restoring my vote, this parody is hilarious!

Should have known this idea was done already - and really good too! :-)
