The Lyrics


PC worn and a draggin' in unravelin' throes?
Your RAM it's in a trance, IP's crummy and slow.
Pop a screen blue, when it never should,
Beast is so impossible.
Failin' software modules, it's in schlock, no good.

Techies, hacks and geeks,
Can't clear it when is feeble it is down.
So call us, techies, hacks and geeks.
And every site time again would crash on down,
And play you like a clown.

Can't play my toy, gone south needs a heal,
Access denied, 404's don't appeal.
Bits of sixteen, in zeros and ones,
Code's gone bust, it's senseless,
This droppin' sites is rotten, not a clue what it's done.

Techies, hacks and geeks,
We're hearin' from the people, who are down,
They call us, "fix me, fast and cheap".
They're all uptight, come and mend and make it sound,
To play on sites we've found.

These beasts need retoolin' and there's lots that fail,
Like abused system files.
Root Kit raiders, bring down malware trouble,
Now your credit's been bad for a while,
And now you've been skinned and defiled.

There are worms that are snaggin' and a travelin' slow,
They bomb out every chance; they're so crummy they blow.
Scans saw views shown things not as should,
PC needs a hospital,
Nail these crippler modules and clock them good.

Techies, hacks and geeks,
We fix up what is feeble and what's down,
Geeks Я us, gimpies rant and peeve.
When any site if and when could not be found,
Dismayed, they're sad and down.

Techies, hacks and geeks,
We hear it from the people, who are down,
Just call us, techies, hacks and geeks,
And when your site fails again to come around,
Just lay some money down.

Where are the Geek Squad when you need them? Well written parody since those 404 based parodies you submitted! Oh, btw, the alerts you announced to us are exactly what I did when I was on AIR this morning because usually New Entries update at around either 9:30am or 10am. I'm glad it's finally working though. Anyways, here's $555 you can use for technological maintenance!

Christie Marie - So you have exposed the geek hidden within. Very good. Thanks for your comment.

I got it bassakwards i posted the ALERTS and then emailed ChuckyG. He missed the script that updated the new entries and fixed it. So now someone is no doubt going "Huh"? looking at all my comments. Also the author has to have at least 10 parodies posted before making the author list so I missed some. I also missed a few authors who had more than one entry posted today. Next time I'll just email ChuckyG.

Been there and done that, Guy, especially the last line on having to lay some money down. Well written.

Thanks Tim - These toys can get expensive and geeks don't work cheap. I'm thankful that I can fix my own problems.

Don't just stand there...pass the 'Nerds!

That was a funny one...of course the geeks do cost money. At any rate I still call 'Geeks Я us', at least while they still take money not gold. 5's :)

I find it both enjoying and annoying to be a geek, since you often end up stuck in a BSOD, yet you enjoy at fixing it. 555
Guy - October 13, 2009 - Report this comment
OMR - LOL - here's a fresh box.

Pat - Thanks for your view and comment. So far as I know, geeks haven't started asking for payment in gold but most people feel they are as good as AU when they show up to fix.

Alvin - Thanks buddy - I've heard of GIGO but FIFO is a first for me but I still get it.

Shirley - I guess I've been fixing on these beasts far too long. My only motivation for fixing BSOD on my stuff is the fact that I am not spending money. I find them quite annoying, but your comment is most enjoyable, thanks.

Not a 404 to be found here, although sometimes the syntax was a bit too complicated for a noob like me. :)

I have the Geek Squad on speed dial... ;)

Very good wordplay. The "fix me, fast and cheap" line was particularly relevant.

(ABC) gee, this is becoming a tough letter in this ABC comp - beautiful syllable-matching and I liked the "Geeks Я us" ref, Guy - esp. the way you made that R turn around - 555

ABC5(T) Nice match with the OS and great job of syllable matching!!!...555!!!

Love Cher and the original song and one of my best friends can easilly fit this discription so I can relate for sure.
Melanie Lee - October 30, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) Oh, man, this is precious! It helped that I really needed a laugh after being depressed by the one in the T contest before yours. This is great: LOL, LOL, LMAO! 555!

This is the ultimate tribute to compu-nerd parodies! Hey, I could do a title switch of that to Lemon Demon's "The Ultimate Showdown Of Ultimate Destiny"! 555

(ABC5) I only understood half the terms in here, but who cares, it's a great parody nonetheless (and thank you for not inserting a generic "the-computer's-not-working-because-it's-Windows" joke, I hate those). 555!

A tad confusing but I think that's more the OS than your parody lyrics (This OS was always paraphrased weird to me), but the comedy and fact that I can relate so well give this one top nods.

tcop wrote pretty much what I was thinking. Solid write, Guy. Best line to me was "They call us, "fix me, fast and cheap"."
