The Lyrics

Why are there so many
danged pop-up windows,
and what do they advertise?
Flat televisions
and beauty solutions
and products for penis size.
Have these guys sold any?
I don't believe it-
We know there's no such thing as "FREE!!!"
Why do they clog up
my modem connection
for downloads, for streaming, for me?

It seems that every click
is caught and diverted
by some jerk who sells a car.
Somebody thought of that
and I'd like to meet them,
just me and an iron bar.
It keeps you waiting
It's so irritating
With 56k, you'll agree.
Someday I'll upgrade
my modem connection
and dust all the cobwebs off me

All of this waiting is hell
I can't afford broadband, it's tragic!

Here I sit, half-asleep
and thinking it's pointless
to play a first-person game.
Everyone speeds round
But I move like snails
The frame rate just drives me insane.
I've done this too many times to ignore it
I'm gonna change my ISP.
Someday I'll upgrade
my modem connection
The seniors, the third world and me

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la

Very good, Steve. Good line - "The seniors, the third world, and me." And me, too.

I love this song, it's hilarious. Surprised I didn't think of it myself. Way past great!

Ok. That wins. I don't know how I managed to miss it before (especially once you mentioned it in my 33.6 parody), but have some belated 5s.
