The Lyrics

I cursed to my monitor, at problems that should not occur
Every chip on the board was fried, there's gonna be a slowdown
Low speed of internet, looks like I need more components yet
Looks as though I'll be more in debt, I'm headed for a slowdown

Chorus:
And it's beeping, all through my computer
Beeping, all through my computer, and I, can't make it stop

I can't find the warranty, I think it's already obsolete
This piece of junk is irritating me, gonna be a slowdown
Shut down, oh shut down, just hit control-alt-delete
Before there is a slowdown

(chorus)
Beeping, beeping, beeping, beeping, beeping, beeping
(chorus)

I gotta defrag it now, I should have had an anti-virus program, Ah, it's all screwed up
I can't afford to fix it, what a piece a junk, I'm gonna blow it up
There's not enough ram, I wish I had a Pentium

I wouldn't expect many comments for old bands like ELO. For those who saw the hilarious Farrelly Bros. movie 'Kingpin' they used this OS in the movie; where Woody Harrelson was in the bowling tournament. Classic movie, classic song. Give it a listen.

(ABC-S) "I can't find the warranty, I think it's already obsolete" And so is the world of electronics and computers. Honestly, this was a very well written parody, and excellent pacing. It was funny, the song in it's nature is short though so while I loved it, I wish it was longer. . .but deffinitely a great parody, and after reading the ABC-R entry, this one is really golden Mikey Squirrel!

(ABC3S) you get my admiration just for using a "obsolete/control-alt-delete" couplet, Mikey - 555

Lots of fine rhyming here, Mikey, and to a very relateable topic. Not lol funny, but very well written, and I didn't slow down your train of 5s. 555.
