Is this the real life? Is this just AFP?
Caught in a filk war, no escape to reality.
Finish this feat, show MP he can't beat me!
I'm just a showoff, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm cooking with Calor now - cram in words anyhow -
Any way the tune goes, doesn't really matter to me, to me.

MP! Just killed a song - put new words into the verse -
Now I'm pretty sure it's worse.
MP, used to like this song,
But now I've gone and blown it all away!
MP, ooh, didn't mean to stop your filks,
If you can't hit me back this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Oh fuck, I've done it now,
Criticised a newbie's art - guess that makes me an Old Fart -
Goodbye, everybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and get a life.
MP, ooh, I don't want to go,
I sometimes wish I'd never delurked at all.

I see a list of ancient threads on AFP
(AOL, AOL, will you butcher this spammer?)
"Underwear" and "geeking", "desperately seeking puns"
("Microsoft sucks!") "Microsoft blows!" ("Microsoft sucks!")
"Microsoft blows! Microsoft blows, Outlook sucks!"
"Get an OS!"
I'm just a luser, nobody minds me
(He's just a luser, from a poor family,
Spare him his life for his worthless PC.)
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go.
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go.
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
(Let me go.) Will not let you go.
(Let me go.) Will not let you go. (Let me go.)
Ah, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
(Oh a-f-pers, a-f-pers, a-f-pers, let me go!)
Shub-Internet has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can take news and let it go by?
So you think you can read it and make no reply?
Oh, MP, can't do that to it, MP,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

Nothing really matters, Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.

Any way the froup goes.
