(sing to the tune of “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad”)
I’ve been surfing lots of websites
here at school all day.
Now I’m getting all these pop-ups,
and they will not go away.
This computer has a virus.
Spyware is using all the RAM.
Every time I check my e-mail,
all I get is spam.
Pop-ups left and right.
Spam all day and night.
Trojan horses on the hard drive, too.
Viruses and worms.
Don’t know what I’m gonna do.
Hackers got my password in China.
Spammers got my address in Idaho-o.
Now I’m getting spyware from Thailand,
viruses from Mexico.
See the DVD drive groan.
See the memory go slow, slow, slow, slow.
See the monitor top smoke.
This computer’s gonna blow!
