The Lyrics

Those of you who've ever worked in a data center will be able to relate to this song.
DATA! I'm tapping on those keys
DATA! It's more than ABC's
DATA! It makes things so much easier to find.

What do you do when a T1's broken?
Losing sync and losing frame?
Whether it's Pac Bell, or New England Tel.
You know it's just a losing game!

Data! From vid games to CD's
Data! And millions of PC's
Data! If only you would please just send it right!

I know this T3 is degrading
And so's my patience with this clown!
So I'll go to the powers. After 1 or 2 hours,
They'll up and say "No Trouble Found!"

Data! It runs at different speeds.
Data! Designed to meet your needs.
Data! It's what this country feeds on every day

One of these days, gonna take a shotgun
And blow away these modem racks!
If it ain't DDS, then it's just a mess.
And analog's no good for fax!

Data! A dude with yellow eyes.
Data! Aboard the Enterprise.
Data! One day he'll realize he's not alive!

Nice job describing the data day grind.

Captain, I find this parody very intriguing... Oh, this isn't about Mr. Data (Brent Spiner of "Star Trek: The Next Generation")?
