Silent Tree Music - Song Lyrics
( Funny Email song lyrics )
BURIED IN E-MAIL
Copyright © 2006 - MickTerry.com
On YouTube, performed LIVE by MICK TERRY (soon!)
Email to the left of me. Email to the right.
Email even when I sleep. Email through the night.
It greets me with a cheery voice: the dreaded "You've got mail!"
So stupid 'cause it's obvious. It's sent to me wholesale.
I'm BURIED IN E-MAIL, BURIED IN spam.
I've got three filters running & they're doing what they can
to keep above the surface so my epitaph won't read,
"BURIED IN E-MAIL. May the Internet have mercy on me."
Email at my work each day. Email at my home.
Email when I'm far away. It won't leave me alone.
I know I can just leave it off, but then, I'm more behind.
The outlook isn't promising. It's all become a grind.
What a marvelous invention! What a fabulous device!
Who'd have thought that it would bring contention?
Who'd have thought it could become un-nice?
Who'd have thought it would be trashed with garbage,
even more than what's mailed to your door?
Who'd have thought they'd overwhelm with verbiage
to disguise what they are trying to score?
Email when I take a break, while drinking from my cup.
Can't let a second go to waste. I'm trying to catch up.
Afraid I'll miss important notes somewhere among the sludge.
I'm learning to not read each joke. "Delete" 's the final judge.
& the email filters grab the mail I really want
while they pass through lots of junk ...

YOU'VE GOT SPAM
LITTLE GREEN MEN
FALLING SPACE JUNK
THIS PHONE IS A P.O.S.
MY COMPUTER'S DOWN
SILLY SALLY CELLHOLE
I SOLD MY WIFE ON eBAY
TOPPED OUT ON TWITTER
EVERYTHING IS AUTOMAGIC
LOST IN A VOICE MAIL JUNGLE
ANOTHER INTERNET CHRISTMAS
DAY AFTER ROSWELL (OF CORSO)
THE COMPUTER ATE MY HOMEWORK
To the TOP
