The Lyrics

IM means Instant Messaging. ICQ, Windows Messenger and AOL's AIM are some examples.
Spend my time, here online, 6 to 9
All I'm playing is blackjack
And I know that they're all pros
Still I go, I keep fightin' my doubts
Make my money back

I don't need your pity, call or raise
For higher stakes, I've lost my rent and more
Pressure's high, no time to fold
Daughter's home, hovering by the door

"IM," she said
Like I would care
Can't she see that I am
Going nowhere?
"IM," she cried
"Not now," said I
What I have lost,
well now it's making me cry
Can't pay electric bill

Can't you see I'm holding three aces
I need another king
Cause then this game's won
Was counting on a spade
But with these other aces
I think I've got them beat,
Been havin' a bad run

See I bet eight and that's a lot to ride
Plus my pride, and they can't bet no more
Now I'm not a man with just two pair
But I'm now aware of the sound of dialing a phone

"IM," she said
"Or I'll phone there!"
Costly long distance call?
No! You wouldn't dare!
"IM," she cried
Gave in, did I
Now I have lost, guess I should never have tried

"IM," she said
"IM," she cried
"IM!!"

Great idea and execution of it....555

Sounds like what's being executed, Rick, is his bankroll! That's why my computer game is free... free cellin'! (shameless parody plug alert) Here's five chips to cash in, and don't come back.

What Empee and Rikksee said.

Very good parody, Tim. I especially liked way the "two pair, dialing a phone" couplet humorously captures the angst and rhyming of the OS.
