The Lyrics

This one was weird. G$ and I were discussing how there's so much lazyness with all the shorthand and such next thing we knew...we had a song. G$ helped me on this one too, until i realized he was taking the verses and changing one word. Thank god for my Veto Power!
When you're online and you feel that you need to say something..
And words just don't express your thoughts
A kiss is made with some brackets and a "K"
And it's times like these when we G-2-G; it means "got to go"
Cause of the lazyness of this gen-era-tion
Short forms speed up, what we already know

B-D-L, R-Y-N.
Try all these emoticons.
They're easy and fun,
Just end the bracket before you're done.

In the computer room (Woahhhhhh)
Shorthand comes in handy.
When your gonna be gone
B-R-B, then type 'back', and you're done.

When you are conver-hersing online, and feel yourself la-ha-fing,
R-O-F-L, let's the other person know it's amu-sing.
You've been out drinking and now your ready to talk to your friends,
A couple brackets and a D or B, let's them knooooow, where you may have been.

L-O-L, B-R-B,
When words take too long
The short hand does so much....

When you feel the gloom(Woahhhhhh)
Type a colon and a shift 9.
When emotions are strong,
Emoticons say so much.

Shorthand, it does...
Emoticons, they say...
Shorthand, it does...
Emoticons, they say so much (Shorthand it does so much)

YO! K-X-Z, S-A-P
Try all these emoticons ('emoticons' background)
They're easy and fun
Just end the bracket before you're done.

When you... you go to bed (Woahhhh)
To rest your weary head.
Those brackets and a capital S
Let's your friends know, your pillow you will press.

It's really easy and fun.
Shorthand and Emoticons.

Yeah, It's quite simple and for anyone,
Shorthand and Emoticons. (REPEAT 3x into fade)
