The Lyrics

Here's one I found while going through some old stuff. The scrap of paper I wrote it on is dated February 4, 2000, long before I arrived on Amiright in December '02. I had to tweak it a bit: Back then, humor was the only concern and I didn't care about pacing. TOS: Terms of Service. TOSsed: Kicked out of an Internet community for violating TOS, usually for calling somebody a dumb (expletive deleted), even if they actually are a dumb (expletive deleted) -- truth is a defense against libel, unless you're on the Net.
There's an old box full of chips and wires.
That's an old man I dn't want to be.
What does he care if folks got trouble?
What does he care if the Net ain't free?

Old Computer, that Old Computer
he must know somethin', but don't do nothin'.
He just keeps hummin', he keeps on hummin' along.

He don't flip burgers, he don't ride buses
and them that do it, at him they cusses.
That Old Computer, he just keeps hummin' along.

You and me, we point and click
driving us crazy, it makes us sick.
Up that grade, pay that cost.
You show a little grit and you will get TOSsed...

I get weary and sick of typin'.
I'm tried of fussin' and scared of hypin'
and Old Computer
he just keeps hummin'
along!
