The Lyrics

Basically my own take on the infamous "Flappy Bird" game (and also a good-natured tribute to the child actress who cheered up and inspired generations with her goody-two-shoes personality and musical numbers), which has spawned a dozen or so remakes, homages, GTA mods and opportunities for malware authors to further infect unsuspecting smartphone users.

Here's what I think Shirley has to say on the game...
Keep tapping,
keep tapping!
Then you'll cuss when birdy hits the pipe

New habit,
New tablet
Lulz ensues as you go whine and gripe...

Flappy bird
Wastes your time to play
Flappy bird
Tap all night and day
Your employer caught you play a game or two
So don't be late, your job's at stake
the bird can just wait for you

Sell your phone
For a thousand bucks*
John's iPhone
Man, his high score sucked
Played it early morning,
Author sent a warning
"I can't stand,
this app on my end
got caught up with Flappy Bird!"**
* - Ever since the app was pulled out people sold iPhones and Android devices preloaded with the game for a fortune on eBay, Craigslist and several other online auction houses.
** - Game developer Dong Nguyen cited Flappy's sudden popularity as the reason why he retired it from mobile app stores.
