How Data Really Travels
If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
And the bus is interrupted
as a very last resort,
And the address of the memory makes your floppy
Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.
If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
the double-clicking icon puts your window in the thrash,
data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash,
Then your situation's
hopeless, and your system's gonna crash!
You can't say this? What
a shame, Sir!
We'll find you another game, Sir...
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 on another
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 then you go out with a bang,
Cause as sure as
I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!
When the copy of your floppy's
on the disk,
And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk,
Then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your Mom!
