The Lyrics

I wrote this parody a while ago, after achieving the dubious honour of reaching 10,000 posts on the Buffy Downunder forums. Here's to you, BDU!
When I wake up, well, I know I'm gonna skip
I'm gonna skip breakfast and skip my shower too
I'll be busy, I'll be busy on the board
Yeah, on the posting board that they call BDU

If I go out, well, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be thinking about what's going on
At the forums, it's the place I'd rather be
I'd rather be posting all day and all night long

Well, I've just made ten thousand posts
Now I might make ten thousand more
Just to be the guy with twenty thousand posts
And no life anymore

When I'm posting, well, I'm in such ecstasy
They'll need a SWAT team just to get me out the door
'Cause I don't care what is happening elsewhere
And I've forgotten what the outside world is for

When I'm hungry, I just call the pizza guy
And I direct him to the exact place I sit
'Cause if I get up, then I'm too far from the keyboard
And I don't like standing up one single bit

Well, I've just made ten thousands posts
Now should I make ten thousand more?
'Cause if I'm the guy with twenty thousand posts
My friends will be in awe

Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-da-da-da

When I'm lonely, yeah, I know that I'll be fine
Because the forums are just one dial-up away
When I'm sleeping, yeah, I know I'm gonna dream
Of all the posting I'll be doing the next day

When I get old, yeah, I know I'll still be online
Eating soft food while my posting rate expands
And when I'm dying, I'll be posting from my deathbed
And they'll have to pry the keyboard from my hands
They're gonna have to pry the keyboard from my hands

Well, I've just made ten thousand posts
Now I'll start on ten thousand more
Just to be the guy with twenty thousand posts
And no life anymore

Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-dum-da-da-da-da-da

Yeah, I've just made ten thousand posts
So I think I'll make ten thousand more
Just to be the guy with twenty thousand posts
And no life anymore

I thought this was gonna be a parody about posting on "inthe00s" .. until I read your introductory comments. Oh well. Five five five anyway.

Nice... someone was just the first to 10,000 at a forum I hang out in (www.ocremix.org) and this seems to fit well with those kind of people. Nice.

I liked it an gave you 5's. I would have given you 5's for humor anyway as I am still laughing at the concept of 10000 posts in Buffy Down Under!!!
