The Lyrics

Written while on hold/disconnect/redial for Dell technical support...
Been holding for tech support an hour,
I'm sure their help is coming soon,
I hope they help me solve my problem,
You'd think I'm asking for the moon.

I'll wait on hold all night,
Just love to waste my time,
Hey now, there's worse support on line.

Don't you just love those hints they give you?
Don't you want to hear them ten times more?
Don't worry if the system disconnects you,
You've got time to redial many more.


Total count of busy signal's rising,
Been disconnected more than I can count,
I only want to get my system working,
All I can do is watch frustration mount.


Wait! I'm now talking to a techie,
He asks what languages I speak,
He'll only condescend to help me,
With Urdu, Cantonese or Greek.


Sadly, he says that they won't let him,
I'll need to contact tech support,
I ask him if that's not who he works for?
I'd kill him but they cancelled my passport.

Those Dell computers must be highly overated.

And then you have to put up with whatever Muzak they play while you're on hold.

Another har-har-har at the expense of ol' C-C-R!

Added another verse: The music they play can be insipid Some old tune in electronic guise The few times that anyone enjoys it Get broken up when they apologize
