The Lyrics

Amazing how people can't live without something that did not exist ten years ago............
(I want my D-S-L......)

Those little ones-zeros, they just have to modem
They play at living on the internet
It ain't working, dial-up has slowed 'em
Downloading nothin' makin' us upset
It still ain't workin', ready to say "Screw it!"
Lemme tell ya what those comp'nies sell
Maybe call up that Covad or that Verizon
Maybe get yourself that DSL

We wanna download movies and music
And some bitchin' comraderies
We gotta E-bay all this crapola
We wanna watch some naked chickies

See the little movie showing mutilation and gore
Yeah, buddy that blood's for real
That little movie from a college dorm room
That little movie making some girl squeal

We wanna download movies and music
And some bitchin' comraderies
We gotta E-bay all this crapola
We wanna watch some naked chickies

I shoulda learned to operate DOS
I should have learned to program code
Look at that llama, he got it better than I do, now
This high speed is a load
And now up there, what's that? Big celebrities?
Man, I think I saw her on primetime TV
Now it's workin'! That's the way to stream it
Downloading quickly and the chicks are free

We wanna download movies and music
And some bitchin' comraderies
We gotta E-bay all this crapola
We wanna watch some naked girlies

Now we are cookin', that's the way to do it
You pay big money for the DSL
Now we are lookin', that's the way to view it
Downloading something besides MTV
Downloading something and it's so nasty

(I want my)
(I want my)
(I want my)
(I want my DSL)

The first half is very good...but I'm on dial-up so I'm waiting for the rest of the song to come up. Darn modem! =) (also, one of my favorite original songs of all time)

I liked the whole thing. Broadband is where it's at. Once you go broad, you never go back.

Get yer porno for nothin' and your flicks for free. Rad, RAD. (And, yes, it's still acceptable to say "rad" if it's an 80s original.)
Crazy Dave - October 14, 2007 - Report this comment
im not so hot with the cussing and porno (But thats just me.) other than that, the only thing i see wrong is the "Downloading quickly and the chicks are free" difies your title. i might recomend changing it to "Downloading Somthing"
