The Lyrics

1
Those tecchies said the world would end with Y2K
And so I built this little bunker just to hide away
But then no planes fell from the sky
And I began to wonder why
Was it a lie?
A scam to keep those wages high?

2
I felt quite down
Why should that be?
Why did I yearn for global chaos?
Could it really set me free?
Because I knew I would survive
I could keep myself alive
In my bunker which is really well equipped and fortified.

3
It would be great
I'd have it sussed
I could enjoy the thrill of seeing all those tecchies bite the dust
They were the ones who said they didn't need me anymore
But did I just give up?
Do you see me on the floor?

Oh no not I
I will survive
As long as I am safe in here I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive, I will survive

Hey Hey Hey

4
Now we've set the wheels in motion
Just you wait and see
We imputed a virus worse than HIV
And then that Internet will overload and be destroyed
It has to be
The world will soon belong to me

And now you see
Somebody new
I'm not that washed up banker trying to make a deal with you
If you come knocking at my door I just won't know you anymore
Now I'm saving everything I've got to win this cyberwar

Repeat 3

Hey, I was one techie who was pretty sanguine about Y2K... but then, I wrote my own stuff and knew it wasn't going to fall over. Another good one, Martha :-)

Aha. Now I have you figured out. You're a Brit. Why, just walk right next door and say hello to Phil. You know if you keep this up someone is going to write "Martha, My Dear" about you. (Won't be me)

Clues here and there. But the givaway was "sussed". See this parody: http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/thebeatles435.shtml. Phil and I have discussed this.
