The Lyrics

I work at a dental insurance company. Our computer system is constantly going down.
Yeah, the IT department told me
Sign off the system today
Got a virus in New York
All the way to LA
So, I changed my password
And pended a claim
Wherever I go they treat me the same

When the system goes down
When the system goes down
When the system goes down
When the system goes down

I'm going down 31st street
To work in the other place
I'm holdin' out hope
I can sign on without delay
A world full of hackers
Internet filled with trash
We spend so much money
To make our computers so fast

When dentalnet goes down
When teledent goes down
When email goes down
When the system goes down

When the spam hits the fan
I'll be calling the IT man
When the system goes down
When the system goes down

Yeah, spam is email garbage
And I'm lunchin' down the street
Not on a roll
It's not to eat
We got members in need
Callers on hold
Is the computer goin' down
or just movin' slow

When dentalnet goes down
When teledent goes down
When email goes down
When the system goes down
(Yeah, go ahead hit restart...hit restart...hit restart...hit restart)

Yeah, baby, when the system goes down
The system is goin' down
(We'll still be conductin' buisness in this town)
When a virus hits the clan
We'll call the IT man
