The Lyrics

Now look at those Handles that's the way they Chat it
You Type the Text on the Monitor Screen
That ain't workin' that's the way they type
Chat-Rooms for nothin' and Private Messages for free
Now that ain't workin' that's the way they type it
Lemme tell ya them Monitors ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on your Index finger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

We gotta install Microsoft 2000
Custom Settings for viewing
We gotta move these icons
We gotta move these pop up adds

See the little handle with the excalmation point and the bold text
Yeah buddy that's his own spellin'
That little Handle got his own jet airplane, he says
That little Handle he's millionaire, so he says

We gotta install Microsoft 2000
Custom Settings for viewing
We gotta move these icons
We gotta move these pop up adds

I shoulda learned to type on keyboards
I shoulda learned to spell correctly
Look at that mama, she got it stickin' in the monitor screen
Man we could have some fun
And he's up there, what's that ? Chat-Room noises ?
Bangin' on the Space bar like a chimpanzee
That ain't workin' that's the way they type it
Get your Chat-Rooms for nothin' get your Private Messages for free

We gotta install Microsoft 2000
Custom Settings for viewing
We gotta move these icons
We gotta move these pop up adds

Now that ain't workin' that's the way its scripted
You Type the Text on the Monitor Screen
That ain't workin' that's the way its coded
Chat-Rooms for nothin' get your Private Messages for free
Chat-Rooms for nothin' get your Private Messages for free
