"Save the File"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

A common mantra for anyone typing a thing. Or editing a thing. Or pa- you know what? Anyone doing anyone where there's a "save" function. There. Bases: covered.
When laptops drop the ball
Will you swear free? Punch the wall?
But what I hope is that you'll stay
Think you should stay
Because I've been there with you, bud
Wrote down a bunch then the power cut
It's advice that ev'rybody needs
But less than half seems to heed

So that your work ain't for nought
You should save the file, save the file
Ev'ry minute, not once
At least twice, a bunch, make sure it's been done

Make sure it's been done
Be sure it's been done

Ev'ry time that I've failed to save
All that's lost won't stay in my brain
And the redo is a time waste
Such a time waste
After each line I type, I'm slammin' on the keys
Left pinkie on control, index for "S", you see
Mac keyboard? I don't know
The shortcut key combo

Point is: so your work ain't lost
You should save the file, save the file
Won't know when your laptop
Will close down, so one needs to save a bunch

Better save a bunch
Always save a bunch

Half your time should be spent on
Clickin' "save my file", save the file
Sure, less work will be done
And that kinda sucks, but you'll thank me, bud
When no more data is lost
Since you saved the file, saved the file
Work projects, games for fun
It'll drive you nuts if you lose your stuff

Driven me real nuts
It's lame, so lame
Oh-oh, sucks
When I lost my stuff
Oh-oh, yeah, oh-oh, yeah
Lost all of my stuff
Lost my stuff, all my stuff

One the one hand, this is why I love autosave, because then I don't have to think about saving. On the other hand, this is why I hate autosave, because without any control over the act of saving, my brain thinks that I haven't. Stupid brain.
