The Lyrics

Chain e-mails are one of the worst things ever made in the world, right after war, guns which reload slowly, and bitchy TF fans.
This stuff keeps coming
Crocs saved by plumbing

I checked my inbox this morning
And it was filled with crap
'If you forward this e-mail
I'm sure she'll take you back'

Some variant of:
'Be sure to forward, or else you die
Like young Lily, last July'

'Coke mixed with Pop Rocks'
'Please forward for cash'
Don't matter what it says
It's complete and utter shash

So then I make an e-mail address
To keep them far from me
But soon, my inbox is full of
'Death and lost kidneys'

And at the end there's:
'Be sure to forward, or Susie dies
She needs treatment, send times nine'

I do not know why my so-called 'friends'
Send me this ev'ry day
I'll toss it away, it ain't worth my time
Get more anyways, it doesn't matter

Why must I forward? It makes no sense
Don't believe it, don't be dense

Delete those e-mails
Those chain-type e-mails
I hate those e-mails
I haven't got any of these...yet. But if I get them, I will seriously consider eating the people who sent them. If they're from another country, I shall eat myself.

Yeah, some idiots have been posting chain messages in their comments on Youtube. I'm gonna kick their butts all the way to Warsaw.

I liked this so much, I forwarded this one on to my Nigerian friend who was so kind to e-mail his country's excess funds to my bank account! 555

Very good. Now make 81 copies and leave them in your church's foyer.

Just don't chain letter me. . .I know not my cleverest comment, but trying my best to judge everything as is, it was well written, I owe you a future read when I'm in a 'funnier' mood.

(Ages) And if you vote 555 today, we'll send you this bottle of natural male enhancement formula, which you can use with these females in [your local area] just sitting at home waiting for a nice guy like you to come along. And on your date, don't worry about money, because this deposed Nigerian Prince is going to give crap...Agri's already got the Prince's funds.
