Paypal Mail Blues

Your humble fishtank is having a bad week. Or, rather, his server is. The story is long and complicated (And archived for now and evermore at http://www.aquarionics.com/journal/id/434) but it boils down to this: Since midnight on Sunday 3rd Feb, every few minutes Paypal send me a blank email with the subject "Don't forget to claim your money from Oliver Newman"

This gets me irritated, so I wrote a filk.

Paypal Mail Blues
-----------------
(TTTO Fool On The Hill)

Post after post.
Alone in the room.
The man with the linux server
getting letters of doom.

They all seem to come from paypal
and theres nothing that he can do
And nobody knows the answer

but the pop on the box
sees the messages round.
And the admin's new toy
sees them all compressed down...

thousand and one,
They keep coming round.
Repeating for each five minutes
like a Merry-go-round

And he never even sees them,
he can see they're sent by fools
abuse-at don't even answer

but the pop on the box
sees the messages round.
And the admin's new toy
sees them all compressed down...

<Instrumental>

And the emails keep on flowing,
server's admin has no clue,
at our end we keep on dealing

but the pop on the box
sees the messages round.
And the admin's new toy
sees them all compressed down...

Ohh-ohh-oh-ohhh-oh-oh!

And down, and down, and down, and down, and down...

And the admin would like to lart them
he is sure now paypal are fools.
In fact he'd quite like to kill them
and the pop on the box
sees the messages round.
And the admin's new toy
sees them all compressed down...

Ooooooooh Oooohh

Yours in total sincerity
