The Lyrics

As soon as I submitted the original version of this I coined the word "sign-on-nym". It's what you get when computer users sign on to the system using the first two letters of both their first and last names. There are no real people mentioned here, this is a song about what could happen. It started when someone in the group named "Judy" whose last name begins with GU observed her signonym is JUGU. I replied good thing your last name isn't GSchwind or you'd be known as JUGS. Of course I couldn't just stop there...
Of your first and last name use the first two letters.
What were we thinking? We should have known better.
And realized that when some users sign in
Their IDs would form awkward sign-onyms

Some of these sign-on-nyms would not offend yer
Unless you happen to be the wrong gender.
FI-del FI-laromo and LU-ther LU-nquist
GI-no GI-rardi all righteously pissed.

Some I'll admit have my sides fairly splitting
Especially the ones that I know are quite fitting.
Like BO-ris ZO-wadny and LA-rry ZY-dell
DUane MButha, their names fit them well.

LO-la CO-rbit, LU-ann SH-erman, HO-ward MO-rrison
WA-lter NK-ata, AN-dre US-tinov all have an apt sign-onym.

To both PO-llys working here fate has been cruel.
One's last name is OP-fer, the other O'T-oole.
I gently remind them how worse they would feel.
If they'd married guys whose last name was O'N-eal.

CA-rmine CA-rmona, CR-aig AP-pley I pity
Who can blame them if their attitude's shitty?
For DU-dley NG-uyen I feel sorry too.
To SH-erman IT-achi apology's due.

I hear CL-ara IT-o's retained an attorney
Also JU-ne GS-chwind, PU-rline TA-te, TI-naTS-cherne
PU-rity BE-nnet, TW-yla AT-kins too;
If I don't change their sign-onyms they will sue.

No one likes the sign-onym that they've been saddled with
Except for some perverted old guy who's glad his parents named him JI-m SM-ith.
