The Lyrics

On the dubious joys of calling help lines in the era of outsourcing.
My cell phone wasn't working this morning
And so I called for tech support
I was on hold for three lonely hours
I'm next in line, that was my thought
And when "Al" finally took my phone call
Did not acknowledge the delay
Right then I knew that I was in trouble
Across the world I heard him say...

(chorus sung in a thick, cheery Indian accent)

"Hello, customer service
I cannot help you today
Hello, customer service
I cannot fix it--no way
Although I said my name's Al
I live in downtown Bhopal
Hello, customer service
Have a nice day."

My DVD set chewed up my movie
And so "The X-Men" I can't view
My coffee maker percolates garbage
And I just don't know what to do
I call the numbers there on my gizmos
Although I know it's all in vein
I call and wait and get disconnected
But I'm a fool and call again
And again...

"Hello, customer service
I cannot help you today
Hello, customer service
I cannot fix it--no way
Although I said my name's Al
I live in downtown Bhopal
Hello, customer service
Have a nice day."

The other day I received a phone call
Did my service call go OK?
Said they aim for full satisfaction
A compliment would make their day
I said I threw their cell phone away...

(stay on hold and whistle until you're blue in the face)

Hello, my name is "Sam." Before I can give you fives for this parody, I must first go through my list in rote, robotic fashion. Have you tried repowering your modem before submitting your parody? Next, are you sure all your cables are connected. . . ?

Now I know why God let the OS be written and be over played ad nausuem wat back when. So you could do this fabulous parody.

Yeah, what PMS said! God I loathe TOS - back in the day, if my friends wanted me to leave the room, they'd start to sing it. Your new lyrics are excellent. 555
