High Hopes!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Once there was a silly old czar/ Thought he could stop/ a Y 2 K farce/ Everyone knows an *rse cant/ Stop a Y 2 K farce/ But he had high hopes!/ He had high hopes!/ He had high apple pie in the sky hopes/ So any time youre feeling bad/ Stead of feeling sad/ Just remember that *rse/ Whoops, there goes another ludicrous man/ Whoops, there goes another ill-conceived plan/ Whoops, there goes another year down the pan/ / Once there was a silly Dyane/ Thought shed stop sh*t hitting the fan/ No-one could make Dyane scram/ She kept making her stand/ / Cause she had high hopes!/ She had high hopes!/ She had high apple pie in the sky hopes/ So any time youre gettin low/ Stead of lettin go/ Just remember Dyane!/ Whoops, there goes/ another flying bouquet!/ Whoops there goes another soft ricochet!/ Whoops there goes another one heading her way!/ / Cause we got high hopes!/ We got high hopes!/ We got high apple pie in the sky hopes/ Our problems just a billion chips/ Theyll be fatal blips/ Theyre just bound to go flop!/ Whoops, there goes/ another system kerplop!/ Ker-plop!/

Richard!!!!!.....Great parody of a great song!...One I was raised on.
In Diane's defense, I have not heard her say that there would be no Ka-chunk. But artist license is granted for your great attempt....
As I consider that I my have to make my living as a travelling minstrel/troubadoure in post-disruption days...I may need to copy these lyrics...Richard, the check's in the mail...course I have no bank account, but never mind that...
