The Lyrics

okay, i've been away from here for a while, and you all deserve an explanation. well, the truth is...
The computer has been drinking
The surge protector's tired
The disc drive's got a broken back
The mouse is running wild
The monitor's a porno addict
The keyboard's high on coke
The floppy discs can't get viagra
And the speakers are not listening

And the computer has been drinking
The computer has been drinking

The computer has been drinking
The windows will not close
A nasty bug's destroyed the web
The net is full of holes
My ISP's a POS
The browser's gone to sleep
The search engine is lost again
And the e-mail is illiterate

And the computer has been drinking
The computer has been drinking

The computer has been drinking
The computer has been drinking
Not me
Not me
Not me

It's hard to compare it to the "pacing" of rhe original for what I trust are obvious reasons, but it does seem kind of short comparatively.
