We are the newsgroup
Tune: I am the Walrus

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together
See how we type whole troughs full of tripe, see what we write
I'm trying
Sitting on a swivel waiting for the light to come
Another sodding sunrise, twenty pints of coffee
Man you've been a naughty boy
You let your nails grow long
I am the oldfart, you are the newbie, we are the newsgroup
Goo goo goo joob
Hoards of first year students, sitting pretty, little ducks all in a row
See how they fry in flames passing by
They're dying, -- they're dying , they're dying
Acid witty poison, pattered out by bitter keys
Screaming like a fishwife, pornographic filking
Boy you've been a naughty girl
You left your sig too long
I am the oldfart, you are the newbie, we are the newsgroup
Goo goo goo joob
Sitting in a grubby bedroom waiting for response
If response don't come you get a thrill from
Posting into every thread
I am the oldfart, you are the newbie, we are the newsgroup
Goo goo goo joob
Geeking sneaking choking smokers don't you think the joker laughs at
you? Ha ha ha!
See how they write, like ghosts through the night see what they cried
They're sighing
Threads mutate, run rampant, taking over every post
Always bloody casting, brain-dead spam and trolling
Man you should have seen them filking Edgar Allen Poe
I am the oldfart, you are the newbie, we are the newsgroup
Goo goo goo joob Goo goo goo goo joob Goo goo gooooooooo joob
