The Lyrics

I'm new to Twitter, don't know what I will find,
I have to watch my word count every time.
Can't get it down, no, no, no, no, no.
I want to say more; the limit’s over before,
I've got it down.

You get to make lots of fancy new friends,
And get to chose when those relationships end.
This keeps it down, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
I could follow more, but then who's keeping score?!
I'll keep it down.

I'll follow you, truce.
If you follow me too, truce.
I'll follow you, truce.
If you follow me.

I like the way I can Tweet on the go,
It is so awesome; my mind's in overload.
Out on the town, go, go, go, go, go.
I can tweet as before, though I'm outside my front door.
Wi-fi's around.

Unlike on Facebook, there are no 'invites.'
You can just follow any one you like.
You're all allowed, so, so, so, so, so
I could follow more, but then who's keeping score?!
I'll keep it down.

Don't block me now, Bruce.
Don't block me now, Bruce.
Don't block me now, Bruce.
Don't block me now.

Your profile page looks good, so I'll let you pass,
I like your Tweets, they are abundant in class.
Retweet me now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now, now.
I could follow more, but then who's keeping score?!
I'll keep it down.

You got me tweeting, wasting time all day.
You got me watching what celebrities say,
What joy I've found, found, found, found, found, found.
I'll use it no more, just dropped my phone on the floor.
That's brought me down, down, down, down, down, down.
I'll use it no more, just dropped my phone on the floor.
That brought me down!

Twitter definitely has its benefits, like following anyone you choose, provided their tweets aren't protected. (In that case, the Tweeter would have to accept you.) 5/5/5!
