The Lyrics

My girlfriend had a few of the lyrics lying around, so I took those and finished it. :)
Choose that zip
Give the file a click
Better get the knack
Or take another crack
When a file comes along
You must zip it
Large problem file can be solved
You must zip it
Make sure your mouse can be revolved
You must zip it
Now zip it
Into less
Cut a file
Go to New
Pick Compress
Give a title
Then try to send it
Don't need to stress
To zip it
Zip it good
When a file send takes too long
You must zip it
They might never get the song
Unless you zip it
No one gets the file
Until you zip it
I say zip it
Zip it good

Hey Cowboy - Good one. This Devo stuff seems to have gotten a spark of popularity. This is such a fun song to mess with. Liked this one much.

That was sung by Dr. Evil from The Spy Who Shagged Me

Josh . . . as to your comment about my parody, I have a whole bag of "shhhhh" for you. :) Mike Myers did not invent the term "zip it" . . . it has been around much longer than that.

Dr. Evil might have said "Zip It", but he certainly didn't sing a song about data files.
