The Lyrics

Where did I arr-ive?
My site I can "naw" see.
Where did the LAN hide?
Done escaped connectivity.
Internet guys,
Have put a disguise on me.
There is no pure joy, (pure joy) I need some synchronies,
I want it easy come, easy go,
Want to eye this site so,
404 this so blows, what the hell's the matter PC, PEE-CEE?

Drama, don't need this man!
Wanted fun on Internet,
404 is all I get.
Comma, did I for-get one,
'Cause now upon my site I cannot play.
Drama oo-oo oh oo,
It's so mean, I don't know why,
I think this screen will look the same tomorrow,
Very wrong, very wrong, I get nothing but get madder.

My baud rate, something's a-bum,
Something is mal-aligned,
Just like Microsoft tells time.
Betcha any money - my IP's slow,
And it's lagging far behind; its pace obtuse.
Drama oo-oo oh oo, (404 this so blows)
Something's gone awry,
Does someone phish? I've never been warned at all.

(short guitar solo, proceeds into faster part)

I hate this little silly "Net-o" of a LAN,
Whatta chooch , Whatta chooch, this is just so gol-dango,
Million volts like lightning runnin' through this fast PC.
404-Oh, 404-Oh
404-Oh, 404-Oh
404-Oh, figure yo! - Why won't it go?

I'm on this PC - I'm never lucky,
He's on his PC, there's an a-nomaly.
Spare him a slice of connec-tiv-ity!
PC runs, PC slow, will it ever go.
It's still a NO! - It will not even go - It won't go!
It's still a NO! - It will not even go - It won't go!
It's still a NO! - It will not even go - It won't go!
Still not even go - It goes no
404 uh-oh - It's a no.
404 uh-oh
Four-oh-four-oh-four-oh-four oh!
Got idea, an idea,
an idea, an idea,
an idea, figure-yo; makin' it go-oh-oh-oh.
I'll bounce the hub and I'll level out this old P-C-E-E
P-C-E-E
PC!

(guitar bridge)

So for now you have stopped me - you out wit this guy?
I may just get lucky and fix will apply.
Just maybe - I can get there just maybe,
Just gonna bounce, just make it bounce right outta gear.

(guitar solo)

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Nothing makes me madder,
Then this old PC.
Nothing makes me madder - nothing makes me madder, you see.

(instrumental ending)

404 does so blow...

(fade out)

I lab tested this song on my co-workers yesterday. We are all IT professionals - PC for Geeks. After I emailed everyone, I could hear several work stations in our server room playing the OS to this and one geek girl who sits fairly close to me just couldn't stop giggling. I even heard someone whistling the tune. Glad you all enjoyed it. It was a fun wtite that took me about 1 hour and 15 minutes to write. I wrote it on my lunch hour. Thank you all for reading and enjoying this but Dylan if you haven't checked AFW's "Talk the Lines" parody today I'd have to say his is better. Give it a look and a comment please. It is worth the read.

Can I convert this song into a polka? Because "Weird Al" Yankovic polkafied the original Bohemian Rhapsody.
Guy - December 24, 2007 - Report this comment
No objections - Go for it. I'd love to see it. I grew up in a small coal mining town in SW Pa and polkas were prevelent. I know quite a bit of polka. My mother liked to listen to a polka radio station and had all the polka albums back in the 70s and 80s.

M'Lady - But alas I cannot take credit for that one you thought you saw. It was done by a theiver of intellectual property that apparently our esteemed webmaster - Sir ChuckG so promply booted off the site. What you "Arrived" at is a tiny "trick" that our esteemed host Sir ChuckG concocked that redirects a deleted link to a pool of parodies on Amiright.com that start with 404 to mimic the 404 unfound link that the gods of the internet use for error trapping routines.

Our esteemed host has devised a way to redirect the somewhat rude internet error to something more desireable. It then gives the clicker the option to view the parody in voting and comment mode. Hit that parody again a few times and you will see how it redirects its error trapping. When you clicked on that parody that was removed from the site it was simply my parody's turn to do the 404 error routine and keep said visitor, in this case you, on the site. Do a search in the search feature under tab "music parody" near the top of the page and plug in 404 on the second line of the search page and click the radial dial next to that space then scroll down and click search now. You will be given a list of all the 404 parodies that have been submitted. There was a parody there earlier that I noticed and it was an exact copy of mine acting like it was a parody of Weird Al video doing Bohemian Rhapsody polka style. You can view Weird Al on Youtube doing this at this link: It's pretty cool.

ChuckyG apparently finds copying other peoples work "annoying" so I surmise he dispatched it with great haste leaving the empty spot that is so willing filled by someone elses original work. Pretty neat feature I think.

(ABC4#) This is great work, Guy. Lotsa good subs, but my favorite came early: "Where did the LAN hide?". I don't get 404s too often, but slow connection speeds are commonplace for me. I install v/d/v in hotels, and there is no way we'd ever sell a customer an internet system like the phone company sells to its customers (Verizon DSL is a marginal improvement over two cups and a string). We like our systems to work. =) 555.

(ABC) Fantastic Guy! Some great solutions to the many and weird BoRap challenges. My favourites were 404-oh 404-oh and "goldango" which was inspired - brilliant stuff and must have taken a while - 555

Matt - I have to hold myself back on several OS parody writtes and one of them is BR. I have a total of 9 BR parodies in my parody portfolio. When I found this site I had ten parodies written and I posted them all on one day. One of them was a BR OS. It was actually a very easy write, but then again I can do BR to about anything. It's just one of those songs that I can play well with. Thanks Matt.

Agri - What I like to hear. I love to please the crowd. Thanks.

Max - "Epic" that is quite a complement. Thanks.

Ant - I've been in the IT business since I was 17 years old back in the days of mainframes, teletypes, punch cards and paper tape. IBM 360 was the digital king of the era when I started. I have worked every discipline of the IT and communications fields About three years ago I moved into Network Administration. I like it because I haven't been challenged this much in over 20 years. I just got my Security Plus Certification last week. I had 90 minutes to take the test. I finished it in 24 minutes and missed three out of 100 and scored an 885 out of a possible 900. My job depended on getting this cert so I have been really hitting the books hard but it paid off on that cert test. I was shooting to ace the thing but they threw some humdingers in there out of left field. The worst part about having to do that is that it took time away from me writing parody. I have a whole lot more squares to fill so it's education time for me for about the next 6 to 8 months. Do you have to get certifications for your job? Your job sounds demanding like mine and that it requires one to think firmly on ones feet especially doing troubleshooting. Now you know why I write so many geek parodies. Thanks for your great comment.

Actually Stu as I recall I wrote this entire parody in about 45 minutes on my lunch break at work one day. Geek stuf comes easy to me because there are so many technical terms and words to choose from and that I have been at this kind of work all my life. For the Big 7 I did BBTL as a geek parody and it only took me three hours to write. My longest parody write was the major general's song called "I do not know the model of this modem Data General". It is about a clueless user who can't get his modem working and calls a tech at Data General for some help. That parody took me over four days to write. The Geek part was easy, it was the bizarre rhyming and pacing schemes that were hard to deal with and keep it smooth. Thanks for weighing in on this. It was really a lot of fun to write.

Amazing song. Those 404s are a nuisence. In fact the only thing worse is what happened when TVTropes got hacked by that Qabandi guy.
Red Ant - September 17, 2008 - Report this comment
Congrats on aceing your test, Guy. I'm not sure what certifications are required to do what we do... I'm learning all of that, but for now I just try to get everything installed correctly and pass inspections. =) I do mostly hardware install - cat5e, RG-6, siamese cable and so on (no fiber optic though - I've never even seen the stuff), and trim out the rooms as well as punch down the wires on phone blocks (110) and patch panels. I know my boss was saying that to do cameras now he's supposed to be Criminal Justice certified or something to that effect. It does take a lot of skill (and tools) just to correctly pull wire and terminate it. There's a thousand ways to pull wire (especially in a wood framed building) and about 900 of them are wrong. It'll probably be another six months to a year before I start really getting into the programming aspects of tel-data work.

Fabulous Geekspeak here Guy. I understand bits and bytes and 2 to the power of 8 and 256 and 512...but (and I know you know the answer to this)...what is the reason for the number "404" ?

Oh...and by the way...how are you doing in the aftermath of the hurricane ?
Guy - September 18, 2008 - Report this comment
IB - I do not believe that the number of the error which is 404 has any particular meaning. Some internet standards group with an obscure name and the authority to declare Domain Name Suffixes and catalogging of error numbers and ot gobs of other stuff simply chose the number 404 when a certain programic error is realized by a piece of software. Well written software always has error trappings built in to give the user a clue as to what the anomaly might be. The most inaccurate one I've ever seen is the error you get that says your machine is out of resources or memory or storage space and your application most often crashes because of it. It is the default error that is bled to your screen when a program errors and nothing in its forward thinking design matches the conditions that breaks it. It just happens to be the last error available error report in the pool of error message software writers put into their codes. So if nothing matches the situation we must tell the user something so just say he's out of memory. This error is seldom if ever true by all of my experiences. So 404 is just an arbitrary number that is universally assigned across the internet for URL page not found.

As for Ike we got not a drop of rain out of it. Ike stayed well east of my area. Transguide signs on the expressways around San Antonio have been telling people to avoid travel to Houston and Beaumont all week long so far, due to limited fuel supplies in those areas. Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio is the FEMA staging area for this part of the US and it is still filled with semi trucks , busses and FEMA mobile command posts and probably will be here for some time until no more emergency relief is needed.

And thanks for the positive comment on the parody. It is much appreciated.

Dylan - First I'd like to thank you once again for the beautiful tribute parody you published today.

Now about these 404 error parodies. Doing a search on parody titles that contain 404 in the parody name I find 18 total. Six of them are mine, so hopefully you won't keep getting this one when you fall off the internet through a bad URL. I think it is neat of ChuckyG to keep you on the site when a 404 condition is encountered. What is really annoying and a bit mind blowing is when I encounter a 404 error and I get one of my own on my screen. This was the first 404 that I wrote. Thanks for your comment.

I find it highly ironic that I find this parody when I check to see if something that Dr Music has written under another one of his huge list of aliases has been deleted (all of the crap that "Chinstar", "Master of Oz", etc. that has been submitted in the last year or so is gone, thanks in part to me notifying administration), and I just noticed that the evil Doctor left a comment that Chucky G somehow overlooked. Anyhow, this parody is great, but I am kind of biased, being a Queen fanatic.

Mixed opinion--404s are necessary evils to be sure--they happen. This is good for a 404 parody, this is one of those ones where I didn't really like the early part of the parody, but it got better as it goes on (BohRap kinda leans itself to that result though)

(Artistry) Love the reference to Microsoft timing - I think I remember someone saying he had a Microsoft gas gauge: "we've got half a tank, wait, no we're almost out, no it's full, no it's three quarters..." I'd sure love to see this PC of yours that runs on a million volts - that's enough power to run almost three Intel chips!
