The Lyrics

When the unluckiest computer uses calls IT for help...
Oh no, I'm pretty sure you're screwed
Error log
You get the death screen coloured blue
When you type in "x"? "How in the heck?" I ask

You frown and point to your PC
"Fix this, please"
I will, once I've read through this, geez
It ain't just small shit, like Internet that lags

And I wonder:
What exactly did you do?
All of your programs close when your connection's severed
Turnin' your mouse on makes the screen shimmer and blink
The only thing that's workin' in iTunes
Is a song you never bought by Robin Thicke
It's crap

Printouts always reverse back in
Right back in
Could be the printer, could be this
Laptop you've bricked by lawless shit you've snagged

Though I wonder
If there's more than that, confused
Computer restarts when you Google for the weather
And when you use the touchpad, your passwords reset
Plus ev'ry letter auto-fills in nudes
That's intentional? Let's stop right there, it's best
Don't brag

[background noise of other IT employees laughing at this ridiculousness]

Don't you wonder?
Each time you double-click, the hard drive smells like leather
The speakers alternate between the right and left
How did you let it get this run down, dude?
Should've called when right off the board, the keys plinked

I don't think I've ever had to call IT, which is great because I like to avoid talking at the phone if at all possible.

Yeah, this is exactly the kind of s*** people get when they have to call tech support. Although the first thing out of their mouth is usually, "Did you reboot?" And, usually, the problem disappears when *they* deign to sit down and look at your PC. First world problems. This is the best I have seen from you in awhile TCOP, good job.
