The Lyrics

Ah parents, they have taught us so much. But sometimes, the next generation has to pass some information as well...specifically about the big scary world of the Internet. This spoof is about one such case. (BTW (by the way): In this parody, "Internet" is used as a verb...as in "to get on the Internet"). Original Song
I hooked them up, helped my parents
But now I’m just embarrassed
Help them compute, I’m teaching
I love my folks...but Jesus!

My mother will call me up, “Steve, please help me!
Searching for recipes
Blue Waffles look int’resting, sounds tasty!
Would you please print this for me?”

They’re putting white out upon the screen
Oh God, help my parents!
(Ooooh) Some people shouldn’t Internet
(Ooooh) My parents shouldn’t Internet

Dad asked me “What’s a hashtag?” That’s okay...
The next one was bizarre...
“Do they deliver those emails on Sundays?”
I rolled my eyes so hard

“On Google Earth we found you, so go out and wave!”
Trying to show patience...
(Ooooh) Some folks shouldn’t Internet
(Ooooh) Mom and dad, don’t Internet

“What’s a Reddit?”
God love ‘em

They called me the other day, sounds so happy
“Something you won’t believe!
Prince of Niger’a, wants to pay us!
Our credit card number, he needs.”

And both of my folks love gambling games
“Guess we’ll try ChatRoulette”
(Ooooh) I love you, but...don’t Internet
(Ooooh) Mom and dad, don’t Internet

Both of my folks, know what they need
Etch-A-Sketch, I’ll invest
(Ooooh) That way they both can’t Internet
(Ooooh) Love you, but don’t Internet (It's easy, it's so easy)
(Ooooh) Can’t help you, don’t Internet (It's easy, it's so easy)
(Ooooh) Don’t Internet (It's easy, it's so easy)
(fade out)
NOTE 1: Blue Waffle...Don't look it up. Trust me.
NOTE 2: For Those Who Don't Know Chatroulette

Liked the concept but the pacing was under par. I think 243 is a sensible vote

I agree. Parents have no business being on the Internet. It's a tired joke but it's mostly true. I'm pretty sure my grandma's brain would explode if she ever used the Internet... And yet my mom has a dating site profile. Yick!

(Artistry) Yeah, it's a pretty played topic, but it's just so darn relatable to everyone, it still stays so enjoyable. I thought the pacing was okay, and I loved all the pop culture internet references you inserted. Each time you did it, I had a big smile on my face. I'm glad I'm not the only person that uses Internet as a verb, so much fun!

The gentle humor was fun against the OS, made me giggle profusely. I must be too old, I don't know what a Blue Waffle is either, and I never clicked on ChatRoulette (something tells I better not bother).

I looked up blue waffle, thankfully it's fake.

(Artistry) I think my dad might technically be more Net-savvy than me, if only because he knows how the connection-modem-router-whatever works. Great parody here, classic humour always works. 555!
