The Lyrics

Like many of you, I'm sure, there are days when the only sanity I can find are in the emails I write back and forth with my friends at work...making fun of all the idiots we're surrounded by. I HATE it when people pretend that they're too busy to take part in our little email parties...so I wrote this parody for them...
We wrote these emails
We wrote these emails to get a laugh
Wrote these emails
We wrote these emails to get a laugh

Looking in your in-box
What is that you see?
Look at that, it made you smile
An email from me!
Knee deep in the forwards
Sinking in your fight
Too many "friendship poems"
Eating up the bytes!

When Arwen starts the convo
Your choice is to respond or pass...
Don't you remember?
We sent those emails to get a laugh

We wrote these emails
We wrote these emails to get a laugh
Wrote these emails
We wrote these emails to get a laugh

Someone's always sending
Jokes we've heard before
Who cares? We don't mind spending
Our time, 'cause work's a chore

But making fun of others
Is funner than the rest
We used to spend all afternoon
Mocking the boss' best

When Arwen starts the convo
Your choice is to respond or pass...
Don't you remember?
We sent those emails to get a laugh

We wrote these emails
We wrote these emails to get a laugh
Wrote these emails
We wrote these emails to get a laugh

It's just another Monday
At the same old grind
And when there's comic relief
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You can't even add a line!!

(instrumental)

I write the emails
That help the time fly by
But when my friends just bail
I have to ask why!
Don't tell me you're busy
'Cause you're just on the phone!
Or looking at the internet
Leaving me all alone!

Don't you remember? (remember)

When Arwen starts the convo
Your choice is to respond or pass...
Don't you remember?
We sent those emails to get a laugh

We wrote these emails
We wrote these emails to get a laugh
Wrote these emails
We wrote these emails to get a laugh

We wrote...we wrote these emails
We wrote...we wrote these emails
Repeat to fade...

Arwen, this has Grace and is definitely Slick. 5's

That guy who does "Dilbert" is right; how DID people look busy before computers? Nice job.

Hello! I know...I am such a "hard worker!!" At least that is what everyone thinks...haha! Thanks for the vote, Claude!

:c) I'm a proud member of no chain letters in the past year. Good work, Arwen.
Arwen - January 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, 2nz! I appreciate it. I especially hate the sentimental ones...that say, "if you don't send this on, to at least 87 people, you're ashamed of God." or something like that...

It's especially fun to send the chain letters back the other way, especially the ones that say "Joe Blow broke the chain. Seven weeks later, he lost his home in a flood, his wife left him, and his dog died..."
Arwen - January 14, 2004 - Report this comment
Indeed. Or the money making ones. And people justify their stupidity for sending it on with "Oh well, it's worth a shot!" or "it can't hurt to try!" as their little comment. Whatever.

Arwen, YES! This is one I would have saved from my "Inbox" over to my "REALLY Funny Stuff" folder (if I still had a job & e-mail program at work). Now I can just fly back over to this site and look at it anytime I want to. A cube-neighbor (Thanks, Stephen M., if you happen to look in here) at work noticed I had a rather humorous touch at adding captions to photos and started combing the Web during free time and forwarding things to me. They ended up all over the Department. I didn't send them direct to my Supervisor but when she heard a lot of chuckling around the room sometimes she call me up and ask what I was sending around and how come I didn't send her one. I guess I had a lot of "Partners in Crime" there. But I'm keeping in touch so far and plan to continue to do so. Great bunch.

The e-mails that bug me are those where such-and-such says someone died and they left a bank account ... I ignore those. Your parody was excellent!
Arwen - January 27, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, Pickle! I haven't submitted anything for a couple of days, so I really wasn't expecting any votes today...so...Happy Birthday to Me, huh? (it really is my birthday today...so PERFECT timing!!) Thanks again!

Arwen, Already "voted and noted" on this one a while back but I see it's your Birthday. So Happy Birthday, you cute, clumsy, short, clever litle elf, you. Me, I always try to just reflect on my Birthday (April 1st, no kidding) and celebrate the other 364 1/4 days of the year. More fun. I've found life is good, even when it seems to suck sometimes.
Arwen - January 27, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks for the birthday wishes, Paul...it's been a good day...and I'm with you...I celebrate every single day...today is more of an excuse to insist that people adore me more than usual...(as if that's possible!) Thanks again!

Arwen, Well, it looks like it sure worked around here...OH, Have a Very Happy Today , also...
Arwen - January 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Honestly...I'm not as happy today...but that's the breaks. I'll be doing much better at 5:00.
