The Lyrics

Nice site, looks good using netscape
Explorer? Op'ra? still correct
best thing upon the internet
theres no viewers but I'm still hopeful yet

I was plugging my new website
ooh, freshly on
now I'm plugging my new website
empty space - here - dot - com
say its a business - wheres the cutomers?
we're facing bankruptcy, and we're not the first

search engines they cannot find
it'll be added in a few weeks time
cut the losses now it's time to go
close up and the site says "sorry, we've closed"
pay search engines, to put you high on the list
now you know that your promotional deadlines missed
I don't know how much more our funders can take
we'll join boo-dot-com as a silly mistake

I was plugging my new website
ooh, freshly on
now I'm plugging my new website
empty space - here - dot - com
say its a business - wheres the cutomers?
we're facing bankruptcy, and we're not the first

you think it's profit until you realized you faked it
now enron's hit the same, auditors come to visit
they call it instant money and then they don't invest in it
can't remember the URL, I wonder what is it?
the site hosts who want to check if you want some kind of rebate
on the total redundancy of hosting that whats on your webspace
though it shouldn't take a miracle - promotion today
we've only had a single surfer - on that site today

I was plugging my new website
ooh, freshly on
now I'm plugging my new website
empty space - here - dot - com
say its a business - wheres the cutomers?
we're facing bankruptcy, and we're not the first
plugging my new website, plugging my new website
plugging my new website, plugging my new website
