The Lyrics

Creative license notwithstanding, we think it's pretty true to the original tune...
My door is locked, I'm stayin' home.
I hear you standin' outside the door,
Don't come in, I'm trying to get by
My head is achin' and it's early morn
I take a break to look at porn
I'm all by my lonesome, but I'm doin' fine

CHORUS:
Go leave me, don't bother me
Maybe you can e-mail me
Turn down the TV and please hold the phone
'Cause I'm workin', on a webpage
Don't know when I'll be free again
Oh jeeze, this irks me so...

There's so many lines I've written down
So many links to check around
I tell you now, it's slowin' my 'bot's ping.
Every IM sent drains CPU
Every mp3 will slow it too
When I'm done I'll throw quite the shindig

CHORUS

Now the time has come to PHP
Perhaps some Perl and ASP
All databased using MySQL
Dreaming of finished product
Of accolades and other stuff

CHORUS

although I have no clue what Perl, ASP or PHP is (I do know what MySQL is) I though this was really good!

Very good! Does this mean that we will soon be able to see a Rice Cube web page?

pfft...I haven't updated my webpage in eons...Watt updates his pretty much regularly though. I had an idea about parodying how my webpage has been "under construction" (read: limbo) for five years now, but I lost it...grrrr :-P
