The Lyrics

This is a parody of Nena's 99 Red Balloons (99 Luftballons in German) about a computer which just did a BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death). It also is a bit of a bash at PC World. Hope you enjoy!
You and I in PC World
Bought a cheap PC for £300
Took it home and turned it on
Set it up but it installed wrong
Windows 8 has many bugs
Maybe try and give it a hug?
When the screen went all blue
I then said "This can not be true!"

My PC, now has crashed
And now the screen is slashed
Panic bells, it's red alert
Let's now phone up PC World
The PC then springs to life
Opens up Windows 8
My PC's now a paperweight
And it's more suited on a dinner plate

99 Problems found
99 Solutions inbound
I phone PC World again
Call the technician out in a hurry
Then they say "It's not our fault!"
This is it, lads, this is war
The supervisor's on the line
As my PC continues to crash

A technician finally came
And again I get the blame
"This is all your problem"
Everyone's a technical geek
With problems to identify
To clarify and classify
He leaves, alas with no comment
And the BSOD [Bee-Sod] is really apparent.

And my PC still crashes!

Ninety-nine dreams I have had
In every one a great PC
It's all over and I did a twirl
In this dust that was PC World
If I could find some CCTV
Just to prove customer service wasn't here
And once I find a decent PC
I think of PC World and play some games

Luftballons is German for air balloons. Your OS is the English version by Kevin McAlea which has slightly different lyrics.
