The Lyrics

Social media is very quick to point out when you've done a stupid...
You might have heard of "the ratio"
It's when you tweeted somethin' real shit
And there's twice more replies to it
Than retweets, guess what you did?

Hey, failed Twitter
Oh, never anythin' good
Got ratioed quick
Should not have used that one word, whoo

Hey now
A pitiful count of likes, mate
But the replies only grow
There's no way you're gonna wiggle
Out of this downward spiral, boy

Failed Twitter
Oh, could've said somethin' good
Got ratioed quick
Test out, out loud, all your words
[stream of shocked replies]
Ratioed quick
The crowd doesn't like your words now

May not like how they're mean, but
There's somethin' you should keep in mind
If you don't sit back and listen
Then a repeat is in sight

Failed Twitter
Oh, your mentions can't look good
Got ratioed quick
You've found you're not good at words
Failed Twitter
A week's time-out should be good
Got ratioed quick
Write down a list of bad words

Ratioed quick, ratioed quick
Ratioed quick, ratioed quick
Oh, ratioed quick, ratioed quick
Ratioed quick, ratioed quick
Ratioed quick

Not sure whether to actively dread the comments or be relieved with the fact that I rarely get any.
