If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port
And the bus is interrupted at a very last resort
And the access of the memory makes your floppy disk abort
Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash
And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash
And your data is corrupted cause the index doesn't hash
Then your situation's hopeless and your system's gonna crash!

If the label on the cable on the table at your house
Says the network is connected to the button on your mouse
But your packets want to tunnel to another protocol
That's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall

And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss
So your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse
Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang
‘Cause sure as I'm a poet, that old sucker's gonna hang

When the copy on your floppy's getting sloppy in the disk
And the macro code instruction’s caused unnecessary risk
Then you'll have to flash the memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM
And then quickly turn off everything and ask for help from Mum!
