The Lyrics

Okay, so yesterday, all of us in Pittsburgh and nearby areas have experienced an extremely huge snowstorm (There was like 8-12 inches) and the power was out until quarter after 11 pm. I hate when the power goes out. Here's a song I wrote about those inconveniences. Also, this happened the day before Super Bowl 44, and I worried I was not gonna see The Who, but now my worries are put to rest.
I do mind
that the phone lines have now unfurled
Not fine
I've entered computer hell
The TV is kaput
The microwave just died
Call the electrician guy
Now we're out with the lights
We're out with the lights

Sometimes
I feel like I might go insane
Like slime
The snow blocked off the whole driveway
Well I know cuz of this
We are all locked inside
Better leave them behind
All our plans for tonight
We're stranded tonight

I hope the lights come back in time for the big football game
Two guys named Roger and Pete will give it fame
(spoken)
Me: I don't wanna miss those guys!!!

I do mind
that the phone lines have now unfurled
Not fine
I've entered computer hell
The TV is kaput
The microwave just died
Call the electrician guy
Now we're out with the lights
We're out with the lights

Sometimes
I feel like I might go insane
Like slime
The snow blocked off the whole driveway
Well I know cuz of this
We are all locked inside
Better leave them behind
All our plans for tonight
We're stranded tonight
Now here come the lights
We'll all be alright
