The Lyrics

For Artistry 11
Went online and looked at my inbox email
And it was no surprise , it was all junk mail
Whoever sends this I oughta go kick their ass
Penis enlargement for 50? I think I’ll pass

Trouble with the computer
Now it’s starting to act a bitch
Don’t think that it likes me ,cause this I’m about ditch

BSOD came on , my system was almost toast
It’s pretty odd
I did nothing, then it started to slow
Gotta call tech support so I can vent
Im talking to some guy name Sanjay Guptalent

Trouble with the computer
Gotta call some guy that’s not a hack

Lucky I wasn’t pissed or the system would be shanked
Trouble with the computer
Happened suddenly
Gotta take it to the Geek Squad ,right now possibly

Said “Could you please fix my computer, it is fried and won’t come on”
He said “Yeah it’s dead, you should get another one”
To get a new one, this is the place
Got a new one , now I’m blazed
Computer’s home, no trouble and iM amazed
Trouble...Trouble...Trouble...Trouble...

Somewhere someday those spam guys
Will stop sending us mail
And pop=ups will be done and gone
We won’t say what the f*ck?
No computer’s going wrong
And if this verse sounds out of tune
50 bucks for enlarged schlong?


Trouble with the computer
That’s the song I chose
To parody for this event, for a band called Skyhooks
Trouble with the computer
Not by Cloudhangers
Australian 70s glam band
That we’re all here to spoof
2007 Jack "Local Celebrity" or "El Scorcho McLovin" Wilson

This is so well-written and relatable, Jack...it's a shame the OS is so obscure that more folks won't look in. From this Hooks fan, however, you get a big set o' 5s

(Artistry) Interesting idea to work in lyrics talking about how this is a contest entry. Could use some better matching to the OS pacing, but loved "Sanjay Guptalent".

(Artistry) Trouble indeed. Lots of pacing blips. Sounds like you ran out of ideas by the time you hit the last stanza. This was kind of a difficult song to do, no doubt about that.

I agree with Aggy about the last line, it was funny, but it didn't really fit, but it was a good idea to update the OS.

(Artistry) Same sentiment as everyone else. particularly that last verse...ouch, man.

Is that the same Sanjay Guptalent who keeps ringing me from Bombay with cellphone plan offers? wow, impressive talent - seemed a little rushed though Jack

(Artistry) Very clever parody, impressive wordings. . .although pacing was far from tight. . .still a very good read.

As I said before: THIS is why I own a MAC!! I had to ding ya for the pacing booboos, but take heart! This made me laugh! "Sanjay Guptalent..." Funny...your work always does.
