The Lyrics

Inspired by repeated error messages I got on several web sites today, among other system problems...
I can't think of one OS that's dumber--
Full of bugs, Windows is a bummer!

Blue screens showing everywhere,
virus threats that cause a scare,
I'm telling you, it isn't fair--
I hate Windows!

Yet another error box
pops up, then the system locks.
I'd rather get the chicken pox--
I hate Windows!

I'd rather have an OS that runs halfway decently;
Those "XP" letters mean "Extremely Poor" if you ask me!

Checking e-mail: boy oh boy,
thirty spams for "grown-up" toys--
I thought I'd filtered out that noise.
I hate Windows!

(And if you want the truth, I ain't too crazy about MS-DOS or OS/2 either!)

Memory runs low too quick,
options I reset and click,
give the box a good swift kick--
I hate Windows!

Warning beep sounds shrill and strong:
wonder what the heck is wrong?
Now I can't download that song--
I hate Windows!

I'd rather have an OS I can count on not to crash--
forget the bells and whistles, I'd leave XP in the trash!

Microsoft deserves a sneer;
bugs turn up ten times a year:
when they're bankrupt, then I'll cheer.
I hate Windows!

Ingeborg, that's really great
Watching you excoriate
The OS we all love to hate:
We hate Windows
...I should know, I've done enough Windows-bashing parodies myself :-)

Stating the obvious, but stating it well. Nice work.
