<fun> The Windows Crash </fun>


The Windows Crash (A Filk)
<aside>This came to me early this morning and I am one who, not content to suffer alone, feels the need to inflict this sort of thing on others. If you don't think it belongs on LQ - read something else.</aside>

I was working hard, late one night
When my computer gave me such a fright
I had just hit "save" and I started to rise
When, suddenly, to my surprise

(It did the crash)
The Windows Crash
(It did the crash)
My data's all gone in a flash
(It did the crash)
It was a desktop smash
(It did the crash)
The Windows crash
(Waa--woo)

While three fingers, danced on the keyboard, clack
The door flew open with a resounding "thwac"
Steve Jobs rushed in and, in a fury, said
"This would never have happened if you'd used a Mac"

(It did the crash)
The Windows Crash
(It did the crash)
My data's gone in a flash
(It did the crash)
It was a desktop smash
(It did the crash)
The Windows crash
(Waa--woo)

Now I use Linux by you-know-who
To the sweet sound of Gates going boo hoo hoo
And when others wonder why I did it then
I tell them all about the night when

(It did the crash)
The Windows Crash
(It did the crash)
My data's all gone in a flash
(It did the crash)
It was a desktop smash
(It did the crash)
The Windows crash
(Waa--woo)

Oh look, multiple desktops
(Waa-woo)
All the tools I need out of the box
(Wa-wa--wa-wooo)
I feel so freeeee!
(Wa-wa--wa-wooo)
Oh Bill, stop crying...

Feel free to add verses (under creative commons attribution) to this thread.

New Verse......... :)

I really loved my Music, I used to play it Loud,
160 watts of Booming Sound, boy was I Proud,
Suddenly one night, my Hard drive Hissed and Wheezed,
Up came that Dreaded Blue Screen, and I lost all my MP3's.

(It did the crash)
The Windows Crash
(It did the crash)
My data's all gone in a flash
(It did the crash)
It was a desktop smash
(It did the crash)
The Windows crash
(Waa--woo)

Nice... though I was expecting the first reply to comment on how it should be Steve Jobs ranting about the mac Perhaps we can have a competition?

This should be better than:

Welcome my son
Welcome to the blue screen
What will you do?
It's all right we'll tell you what to do

You hold down the power stud and count to five
System beeps and starts to come alive
But the fs's a lie and you're apps're still gonna diii iii iie
So welcoooome
tooooo
the blue screeeen!

Though there's an x screensaver called bsod which in good for a heart attack.
