The Lyrics

This song is fairly legendary among Guitar Hero fanatics. For the rest of us, there's Youtube. Link:
On a website this morning, when the silence was complete
An evil voice sent shivers from my head down to my feet.
It said, "Congratulations! You have just won a new iPod!"
It wouldn't stop, so I prayed for mercy from every god.

Frying my brain all day with Youtube, I met the insurance gecko.
I didn't realize till too late that he'd start each video.
I don't want Netflix, screensaver pics, or new emoticons;
I'll click the X, now pop-up ads, begone!

I get a computer free, 'cause I'm the millionth visitor;
Funny, I got that same message three weeks before.
Look, an online degree, medical school for free,
Too good to be true, that means it's real!

How's your IQ? We've got just the quiz for you!
Can you score higher than Elton John?
We must break through this wall of stupid ads that blocks our view,
Through the pop-ups and the spam we websurf on!

Did you know that you could lose weight with just two simple rules?
In the meantime, you can find your classmates from when you were in high school.
Click here, you know you want to make your mouse arrow look like a heart;
But if you insist, you can get the one with pixie dust and stars.

Please don't send ringtones to my cellphone, I will not text to win
And, yes, I know what my credit score is!

Come and search for it with Bing, defy Google's monopoly!
We would like to get your input; this survey's not long.
Try to shoot the cartoon man, win a free minivan,
Click here to download this song from Amazon!

Come see what's new; we'll make a cartoon of you!
Win a free getaway to Taiwan.
We must break through this wall of stupid ads that blocks our view,
Through the pop-ups and the spam, we websurf on!

I know if I click, I'll get a virus,
But what an opportunity to miss.
The king of Nigeria is in quite a deep fix,
And needs my account number, quick!

I must refuse, I've got better things to do.
Like sit through trailers for "Breaking Dawn."
We must break through this wall of stupid ads that blocks our view,
Through the pop-ups and the spam, we websurf on!

Great title sub; loved the bit about the king of Nigeria especially, but the whole thing was well done. Welcome, mysterious stranger!

Welcome! Very good beginner effort, especially with such a hard song. I give this 455, there were a few pacing errors. Trust me, I'm the world's biggest DragonForce fan, so I'd know.
