On the IRC

Parody of “On the Fritz” by Steve Taylor” (parody by FadeAway)

Dedicated to the addicts of #bannerman

Your new account was set

So you got on the Net

You surfed around for stuff

‘Twas innocent enough

Web gave way to yet another download

Then you thought you’d try to lurk

First they got you chatting on the weekend

Now they’ve got you living at work

(chorus)

On the IRC!

On the IRC!

There you lurk

On the IRC!

You’re on ten channels now

(Your buddies wonder how)

On the IRC

/LIST’s runaway again

It seems to have no end

On the IRC

Too much chat will give you carpal tunnel

But you knew the stakes were high

First you opened one or two windows

Now you’re sending wavs to some guy

On the IRC!

(chorus…)

(spoken)

So you say you’re not addicted, that it’s just a phase

So they love Steve Taylor in #bannerman .. does it consume your days?

It’s too late for logging out when you’re requesting pics

Now friends you knew in Real Life are only /nicks …

Your alter ego’s there

And it’s no small affair

On the IRC!

You’ve got your slaps in place

‘Cause they can’t see your face…

On the IRC!

I-R-C has got into your noggin

It should come as no surprise

No one sees you, go ahead and login

If you don’t limit yourself —

Time flies ..

On the IRC!

On the IRC!

There you lurk

On the IRC!

(chorus…)

(shouted)

Going online, on the IRC!

(chorus…)

(shouted)

Hey! Time flies on the IRC!

(chorus…fade out)
