The Lyrics

What a helpdesk technician sometimes hears when fielding calls over the phone.
Screen displays de warning, drive can't be read, err.
Data may have gone south of de thread.
P-C - Is dis de real bytes? Aah.

Slowly I be learning, hard drive be dead, sir.
So that every byte can't be read.
P-C - Is dis de real bytes? Aah.

De bytes and de bits, zipped packed up, they leave me,
Garbling they did, they are splittin' de scene.
P-C - Is dis de real bytes? Aah.

Port them a-wear out, browser be gone,
De data is bent up, it's flaky and fried.
P-C - Is dis de real bytes? Aah.

Data mal-formed, can't reach de dot COM,
Can't see de server farm, de virus alarm.
P-C - Is dis de real bytes? Aah.

P-C - Is dis de real bytes?
Not working is me data store.
P-C - Is dis de real bytes?
It took de dump, it's out sir.

Wonder how long it's gonna take someone to write a "Moby Dick" parody and call it "Ishmaelites"? If they do, it better be as good as this one.
