The Lyrics

I had a Super Nintendo back in ninety two
playing all day intent on nothing else to do
I hate the new games that they play online for free
Oh a oh
They took the credit for the things already made
Rewritten by machine on new technology
And now I understand the problems you can see
Oh a oh
listen to the children
Oh a oh
What are they saying?
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
The internet came and pissed me off
Oh, a, a, a, oh
And now we meet in an online venue
We get on facebook and I wish it go away
And you remember when MySpace used to be cool
Oh-a oh
Boy, the way Glen Miller Played
Oh-a oh
Songs that made the hit parade
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
On my phone and in my car, we can't rewind we've gone too far
Oh-a-aho oh
Oh-a-aho oh
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
On my phone and in my car, we can't rewind we've gone too far
speak your mind and lose your show
Ask Megyn Kelley and Roseanne Barr
Oh, you are the way that you talk
You are the way that you talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk
Social media ruined the way that we talk

I think you missed some rhyming lines in some of these verses. Also, you may want to consider using abbreviations or acronyms to tighten the flow of this song. You probably could have stretched this concept out a bit further with emojis, or brevity words TBH, so you avoid original lines.

Emojis and abbreviations are what is wrong with the English language today. I bet it drives teachers up the wall. I noticed the reference to "All in the Family".

Joseph Little, your parody ruined the way that I write (and draw) it ain't WEIRD, though.
