The Lyrics

This will eventually go on my album of all graphic design related parodies (I've written a few of them...and have plenty more ideas). However, I feel this is a universal enough topic that many people can relate to it. BACK UP YOUR WORK PEOPLE! Note 1: Conrol Z is the keyboard shortcut for "undo". Note 2: The Adobe Cloud is an online application where you can back up all of your work created by the Adobe Creative Suite. Original Song
The project’s due in the morning, right at nine
Staying up way late at night, toughest of my life
Worked really hard, man it’s really looking grand
Client won’t think it looks bland, it will blow his mind!

Now what happened next, brought so much pain
Was working fast to make a change
Selected all, then accidently hit delete…
…then I hit ‘save’!

Feel really crappy, just want to cry
All I’ve worked on gone from my hard drive
And I cannot uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-undo it!
Worked really hard, I can’t get it back
I hit Control-Z, still won’t bring it back!
Man, I blew it, and now I’m clueless
I wanna uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-undo it

No, no, no-no, no
No, no, no-no, no
No, no, no-no, no no

Lost my work that I’ve done the past three days
Each and every single change, now it’s said ‘farewell’
I quickly dashed, see if it got moved to ‘trash’
I really wish it had…

Now I only have myself to blame
For lacking just to pause and save
A flash drive would have saved so much pain
But, oh no, “it looks so great!”

I checked my desktop, where could it hide?
And checked iTunes, not even sure why…
But I wanna uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-undo it
Lost all my art, now I want it back
The client will be really freaking ma-ad
Feel so stupid, why did I do it!?
I wanna uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-undo it

No, no, no-no, no
No, no, no-no, no
No, no, no-no, no no

I really have to stop this habit!
The whole project erased, it didn’t last
It happened all so fast!

Guess I’ll start over, try not to cry
Grab my sketchbook, I’ll draw it out this time
‘Cause I cannot uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-undo it

Then I log online, screen starin’ back
See if Adobe maybe brought it back
Room so spacious, the Cloud so gracious!
It really sa-ah-ah-ah-ah-it saved it!

Thank you Adobe, one of a kind
Man your Cloud just saved my freakin’ life!
It’s not ruined, client approved it!
No need to re-re-re-re-re-re-redo it!
