The Lyrics

When "plug 'n' play" puts way more emphasis on the "'n'" than certain people would like...
I just wanna play some games (setup, setup)
So many things to punch, shoot and blast in space (setup, setup)
But it seems that I'm not playin' (setup, setup)
Because I might just go insane, I bet (setup, setup)
Thought once I jammed in that rassa-frassin' plug
Then ev'rythin' would be great, but I could use a hug
I'm not playin' just yet, this is a pain
Now where'd I put the friggin' instructions? I said (setup, setup)

Checked all of the cords, lumped up in knots
Arranged 'em on the floor just to see which one
I'll use to throttle that one dumbarse
Who decided that I need all of them to plug
My stupid game unit in, refrain usin'
A minimum of whoosits? "No way, that's stupid"
The labels fade (fade) so I can't work out
Just what they're sayin' (sayin'), I'm tearin' my hair out now
My question is when can I play?
It'll be ten eons once I've found the right way
This plugs in, can't check the shape
They're all so sim'lar, swear it's the friggin' same
I've never been a huge tech man
Red, white and yellow make me slap face with hand
Man, so confusin', crap and confusin'
Wish I could just leave it in and not move it

But when I crave fresh air
Metaphoric'lly, I've got to bear this shit (setup, setup)
Each time I swap a new console in here
My brain's hurtin', it doesn't seem fair, this shit (setup, setup)
I wanna see, I, I wanna see the new
DLC, hope it improves the game (setup, setup)
Feel like a dummy, man, let loose enough swears
Could buy a new TV from that jar there, I'd bet (setup, setup)

Go crazy if I could cause I can't afford a tantrum
My brain's full of the needs that this thing's demandin'
Futzin' with settings, too true, thing hates me, I wanna find
The proper channel that'll show the footage I will like
That one's the DVD one? Shit, searchin' round and round
I fear that there's no help now
I keep receipts in case things get returned, goin' through 'em to learn
The TV model, nerds need info to discern
If I've made mistakes and bought the wrong TV
Should toss it out, refund it now, pay more, please
Or maybe I've just flipped one around
Ten thousand cables, so one back-to-front's no shock now
I'm not really likin' how this winds me up quite a bunch, goin' nuts
All because I've missed a plug, tryna shove it in, it's dumb
Don't come off good as I should
You know what's not good? This console, I should prob'bly shut up

Cause I'm not bein' fair
I'm the reason that there's failure here, I bet (setup, setup)
It's been a long time since I swapped, I fear
Pretty rusty 'bout this whole affair, I bet (setup, setup)
I wanna be, I, I wanna be consumed
By this old Zelda game's mood, so great (setup, setup)
But I can't plug it, man, it's really not fair
One damn cable should be all to prepare this shit (setup, setup)

Can't get into it
While stuck pluggin' in the unit, I say (setup, setup)
Can't get into it
Someone show me just how to do it, I said (setup, setup)
Have to laugh
So stupid, have to laugh, I said (setup, setup)
Have to laugh
So bad here, have to laugh

Have I written a parody all about cables getting in knots? If I haven't, I really should - that shit's infuriating.
