The Lyrics

I worked for a ISP and saw the amount of people that got flooded with junk mail and Al is one of my hero's so this was a fairly easy one to write
Spam in my Inbox at home (Ads and Porn)
Read the subject area, wonder what's inside it now (oh joy)
Spam in my Inbox at work (it's the best)
Really makes for good reading, just don't reply to it at all

If you're running low, setup some rules
stop getting mail from those worthless fools
The rules are great to sort the mail
The rules are there to filter the spam

Oh, spam in my browser at home (ads and porn)
Think about selection, are there different flavors now (Ok, let's read)
Spam in my office at work (not the best)
Think about the viruses, wonder if i'm infected

If you need some poon, keep some around
Carry a floppy to help copy it down
Now, if there's some left, don't just throw it out
just forward it to abuse let them sort it out, now

Viruses in my inbox at home (have some more)
Think of expiration, better update the anti (virus)
Spam deleted, whiped, or cleaned (it's the worst)
Think about it, wonder if it's only Spyware, I'll just clean my Hard Drive

Now, once you've replied, Told them to stop
You'll get even more, bottom to top

The key is puting it in the recycle bin
The bin is there to keep the spam in

Oh, spam in my browser at home (ads and porn)
Think about selection, are there different flavors now (Ok, let's read)
Spam in my office at work (not the best)
Think about the viruses, wonder if i'm infected

Spam in the place where I live (have some more)
Think about addiction, wonder if I'm a junkie now (let's read)
Spam in the place where I work (you're obsessed)
Think about the way it's composed, wonder if it's some kind of teat

Spam at the top of my toolbar (Ads and Porn)
Spam any place that you are (Ads and Porn)
The Blocker is there to block the Ads (spam any place that you are) (Ads and Porn)
The ads are there to hold in the spam (spam any place that you are) (Ads and Porn)

Great parody! BTW, if you want to be more accurate, the song you're parodying is actually of a parody of another song (REM "Stand"), so it would make more sense if you put that as the parody song, but whatever's fine. :-P

Being one who sometimes also parodies another parody, and having parodied Spam also(see: Skunks) I know that it can be a difficult song to work with. Very nice job, funny, and another time when the obvious parody topic was overlooked for the song, but then found, making us all kick ourselves ;-)
