The Lyrics

Well, I'm back, if anyone remembers me haha. Last time I posted something was back sometime before Christmas. Man...I feel like Rip Van Winkle here haha. I come back, and it's all different. Suddenly we have to enter codes to post our comments and there's all these new authors on here...odd. Anyway, hopefully I can get back into the game of parodying, and by the way, if you DKTOS, it was covered by both the Eagles and Sarah McLaughlin, if their versions you're more familiar with. If you just plain don't know it...well...I guess you could find in on Limewire or something haha.
Well my Mac broke so quickly,
'Was infected and sickly,
Dead screen, and a broke CD drive.
So I switched to a PC,
Was s'posed to be easy,
God knows, Vista's barely alive!

Now the drive's booting up.
For Vista, the job's real tough.
God, this PC sucks.
Screen's beginning to fade,
My nerves are torn and frayed!
I'm wishing I'd not paid for this laptop
Oh Lord, let me tell ya that Windows is just one big crap shop!

Now I've lost all my folders,
My blood's running colder,
Dealing with this damn PC.
Well there's files all gone missing,
Patience took a whipping,
I'm just about ready to cave!

Now the drive's booting up.
For Vista, the job's real tough.
God, this PC sucks.
Screen's beginning to fade,
My nerves are torn and frayed!
I'm wishing I'd not paid for this laptop
Oh Lord, let me tell ya that Windows is just one big crap shop!

Well my Mac broke so quickly,
'Was infected and sickly,
Dead screen, and a broke CD drive.
So I switched to a PC,
Was s'posed to be easy,
God knows, Vista's barely alive!

Now the drive's booting up.
For Vista, the job's real tough.
God, this PC sucks...
A little rough, I know, but I've not written anything for a long time, so I am pretty rusty, and yes, the line about "Windows is a crap shop" is terrible. But I could not find anything better haha.... And no, I don't hate PCs. I actually sort of like Vista, but I do get really, really frustrated with it sometimes. I do much prefer XP though.
