The Lyrics

Fixin' the mistakes
Gettin' the facts straight
Millions of nerds on Wikipedia toil
Writin' 'bout growth rings
Or Martin Luther King
But all of their hard work is easily foiled

Makin' up stuff again on Wikipedia
Changin' a word or two from the default
Now your report claims that Disney's founder was named
Something obscene, instead of "Walt"

I'm editing "Treason"
Making up reasons
Like playin' "Stairway" on a didgeridoo
Don't be so snooty
I'm just bein' goofy
Bannin' my IP just wouldn't be cool

Makin' up stuff again on Wikipedia
Claimin' "Your Mom" jokes are a form of assault
I'm goin' insane, editin' "Valerie Plame"
Addin' links...
It's all gravity's fault

Vandalized "Photoshop"
Screwed up "Soda Pop"
But that's actually true - it's always called "Coke"
Directed "Gibson" to "Fender"
And "Public Defender"
Now points to the fine article on "Bongs"

Makin' up stuff again on Wikipedia
But now my editin' has come to a halt
The error page claims that I've been blocked, banned and flamed
And I know its my own damn fault
Yes, I 'spose it's quite lame to go and publish false claims
And I know its my own damn fault

This comment was originally written by my evil twin Bernard, and was very nasty, and gave you all ones, but I edited it to be complimentary and rated a five.

Very clever ideas here. When I look up "vandals" on wiki, do I see your face?

Jonathan: I'm not following you. That said, not bad, except for the profanity: 545.

Jonathan with the S - It's in the OS, and fit pretty well for the narrator's remorse at the end - I didn't just randomly throw it in. Nonetheless, no complaints - it's probably one of my best received parodies in a while.
