The Lyrics

I used some lines from the original songs because they fit the song. I am the same guy who wrote the Bullte With Butterfly Wings parody, but I will go by the pizzahunks moniker from now on.
Breakdown, AOL 8.0
Commercial scams wasting our online time
On an cable right above the street
I wish we had Shaw

Rogers keeps on cutting us off
With the cursors pointed at MSN
We were sure we'd never see and end
To it all

And I wish we had Shaw
To kill off AOL
And we don't know
Just we will get Shaw
Never, I guess
Forgotten and absorbed
To the back of our minds

Let's rob the vacant executives
They're not sure just what we have in store
Internet, service slipping fast
Down to see

I wish we had Shaw
As desperate as we are
We want more speed
In the land of a thousand sites
And poor service
Connected and assured
To the sites, our mice below
Faster than the speed of snails
Faster than we thought it'd be
Beneath acceptable

Rogers never knew the rules
Hung up our web and phone
No apologies for bad service
I know them better than modem
To see

And I wish we had Shaw
To kill off AOL
And we don't know
Just we will get Shaw
Never, I guess
Forgotten and absorbed
To the back of our minds

My service heats my anger
As you see, Shaw will conquer
