The Lyrics

Beefed-up my wall, last night, real tight
Zone Alarm Pro, what a gem
No more hackers in sight - won my fight with them
I pissed the worst ones off - I risked my life
E-Mail filters in place
I won this timeless fight

But it wasn't gonna be a long long time
Till all those nerdy basement-dwelling swine
Got wise and loaded up their guns at home
Oh no no no
They shot rocket spam
Rocket spam - blew out every fuse right here at home

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Till I find peace and I don't have to whine
About the hell they make my life at home
Oh no no no
Cell phone rocket spam
Rocket spam - burns me when I use my telephone

Laws ain't the kind of way to faze these kids
In fact they're bold as hell
And so no one dares to faze them -
- if they did -
They'd unleash violence, on the Wi-Fi bands
It's just their job, they're u-ber-geeks
Their rocket spam
Their rocket spam

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Till I find peace and I don't have to whine
About the hell they make my life at home
Oh no no no
Wi-Fi rocket spam
Rocket spam - microwaves confuse me till I'm stoned

And I think it's gonna be a long long time
And I think it's gonna be a long long time
All my clocks at home are stuck on Hong Kong time
And I think it's gonna be a long long time

(ABCs) Loved the rhymes, especially the Hong Kong one, and the recording was... an experience that will fail to leave my fragile cerebrum soon. ;)

(ABC) Johnny! Wow! I coulda sworn I'd looked and commented on this one already! You know, I remember trying to LISTEN to the audio file you had posted and having trouble with it...it would only play maybe 8-10 seconds at a time and then stop for 30-45 seconds before continuing -- I've had that trouble with a lot of audio file postings, probably something on my end I would imagine. anyway, 5's here. nice job - good commentary on the "Spam" situation.
