Richard Dale, you have inspired me to give it a whirl
To the tune of Young at Heart
Y K two, sad but true Itll happen to you When things fall apart Database, becomes moot Will no longer compute When things fall apart If you wish to survive Till two thousand and five Make your plans, follow through It might keep you alive Now here is the best part Youve got a head start You can be prepared before things fall apart.

Sorry, that looked different before 'submit', try this:

That's absolutely inspired, Uncle!! I was fine with either version because I was singing along as you intended. Surely we could adopt that as the Y2Ker's Theme Song; it might even replace "The Star Spangled Banner" since it's so much easier to sing. (nothing subversive intended of course).

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery... Glad to see its catching, be nice to have a concert of y2k's greatest hits. I think I'll have to look to my laurels, the competition is getting hot.
