The Lyrics

This a slightly amended version of an exisiting song
Those techies 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 techies 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
No body's gonna mess with me
An my armour plated SUV
And I'll survive, I will survive

Hey Hey Hey

4
Now we've set the wheels in motion
Just you wait and see
I've imput a virus that's much worse than HIV
And soon the 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

I like Y2K humor. Unfortunately, all we have left to parody now are election years. Damn, I miss that old millenium!
neminem - February 29, 2004 - Report this comment
Wow. Another absolutely perfect on humor, just slightly off on timing, parody. Could be my sense of timing's just off, as I've been giving out a lot of 4/5/5s recently, but I don't think so.

This was utterly brilliant. I'd click on the 5s, but they appear to be a matrix-eque bundle of hypertext at the moment.

Would that it was a scam to keep the wages high... I might have a bit more money, were that the case ;-) Excellent parody, Martha.

Hello. My name is Professor Badlydrawn (and I was defeated by a Bylaw). Will you marry me? I know my ad says 'Single Female' but if your husband was a techie, that's not a problem anymore.

Excellent Martha.
