The Lyrics

Webpage,
Don't understand
Why you can't log me on,
When you should and you can't

Last time,
You loaded faster here
Download this page,
Sometime this year
Where did it go, ohhhh...

Fix these broken links
And load that page again,
Cache that memory
What will it bring,
And show to me
A blank white page will open up
And make me sing
Fix these broken links

Hey now,
Sometime tonight
I tried Safari and Fox
And they can't get it right

Windows
And Mac I know
There's no advantage to one
And both systems run so slow
And I mean slow,
Wowowohhh...

So mend these broken links
And maybe then again,
I'll learn to surf again
When I hear the computer ding
No page shows up for me
And let's me click on in
Yeah, click me in.
Click me in!

Windows
And Mac I know
There's no advantage to one
And both systems run so slow
And I mean slow,
Wohhhh...
Yeah, yeah, yeah...Yeah, yeah!

Fix these broken links
And load that page again,
Cache that memory
What will it bring,
And show to me
A blank white page will open up
And make me sing
Fix these broken links
And maybe then again,
I'll learn to surf again
When I hear the computer ding
No page shows up for me
And let's me click on in

Not bad. Using again in back to back lines "And maybe then again, I'll learn to surf again" and reusing chorus takes a little bit away from it.

You'll find that on this website, we're sticklers for a couple of things:

1. Pacing. When you sing a parody, you can slip in an extra syllable or two in a line and it doesn't take anything away from the quality. But in a purely written form, you gotta nail the pacing.
2. Repeating choruses. If the OS chorus is more than one or two lines, repeating a chorus in the parody sometimes comes off as a little lazy. There are exceptions of course.

I've seen other comments welcoming you to AIR, so I'll join in and say glad to have you here.

Thanks for the feedback, McKludge (if indeed, that is your real name!). I usually don't repeat choruses, and this one I couldn't find anything more to milk. It'll probably get a rewrite in the future. And thanks for pointing out the dual 'again's. And as to pacing, I have certainly found that out about this site. To me, I'll sacrifice the pacing to get the line right. Personally, I don't mind the low marks in the pacing category. Just getting some comments and feedback and getting my stuff out is the main thing. And I must say, I have found nothing but encouragement and nice people here. It has been a pleasure so far.

Really good effort here, Warren--I enjoy your stuff. It seems you're *quite* prolific too!

Thanks for the kind words, TJC. Before I found this site, I had already written quite a few. I was surprised and relieved to find that there were quirky folks out there just like me when I discovered AmIRight! Maybe we all take the same medication?!
