Talking A Mere Old Tech Fried.

Well kiddies, it looks like Uncle Raven forgot to take his medication again this morning so while we wait for the little men in white coats to arrive, let's all gather around for a sing along.

Today's tune is American Pie so follow the bouncing cursor (and no we're not talking about Uncle Raven). So here we go....


A long, long time ago
I can still remember
my computer used to run just fine

When my machine was still brand new,
I could even play Doom 2
And my system wouldn't even
bat an eye

But then the spyware started comin'
and my machine just wasn't hummin'
Hard drive free of trojans,
but defrag still did nothin'

So Desperate I phoned up the geeks
then I tried control alt and delete,
but I had to admit defeat,
the day,
the compuuuuuuuuter,
died.

So Bye, Bye,
My computer just died,
Clicked a button,
and then nuttin'
Now my system is fried.
And tech support
they're office closed up at five,
it's enough to make you sit down and cry,
enough to make you sit down and cry.

Did you write this crappy DOS?
and do know how much stuff I lost?
When this **** thing ate it's-self?

And do you believe Restore will work?
or will it, only, make things worse?
SHould I give up and just cough up for a dell?

This crazy thing just makes me shout,
How I wish that I could throw it out,
I miss Jib-Jab's Cartoons,
And how I loved surfing iTunes.

I was a lonely teenage cyber buff,
with an IR Keyboard and a lot of stuff,
but I knew I was out of luck
the day
the computer
died.

I started singing
Bye Bye
My computer just died
Clicked a button,
and then nuttin'
Now my system is fried.
And tech support
they're office closed up at five,
it's enough to make you sit down and cry,
enough to make you sit down and cry.

Ooops the men in white are here so it's time to peel Uncle Raven off the ceiling fan so we'll have to finish this some other time.

Raven, I laughed so hard I was crying. May I have permission to copy and send this to friends?

Raven, I think you just sang the story of my computer life. Geeks on Call will retire on my business alone.

Thank you, thank you :D

PD >> Yeah it hit me one night when I was playing at MSN GameZone (you have to use MSIE to get in), I clicked on a link and MSIE locked my whole system. :D

Alix >> Sure! Go ahead, I'm just sorry I haven't finished it. I got that far and brain-froze :D

This verse will be spinning in my head all night. Thanks, Raven.

I started singing
Bye Bye
My computer just died
Clicked a button,
and then nuttin'
Now my system is fried.
And tech support

enough to make you sit down and cry.
