Why Computers Sometimes Crash


If a packet hits a pocket
On a socket on a port
And the bus is interrupted
At a very last resort

And the access of the memory
Makes your floppy disk abort
Then the socket packet pocket
Has an error to report

If your cursor finds a menu item
Followed by a dash
And the double-clicking icon
Puts your window in the trash

And your data is corrupted
Cuz the index doesn't hash
Then the situation's hopeless
And your system's gonna crash

If the label on the cable
At your house
Says the network is connected to
The button on your mouse

But your packets want to
Tunnel to another protocol
That's repeatedly rejected
By the printer down the hall

And your screen is all distorted
By the side effects of gauss
So your icons in the window
Are as wavy as a souse

Then you may as well reboot
And go out with a bang
Cuz sure as I'm a poet
The sucker's gonna hang !

When the copy of your floppy's
Getting sloppy in the disc
And the microcode instructions
Cause unnecessary risk

Then you'll have to flash the memory
And you'll want to RAM your ROM
Quickly turn off the computer
And be sure to tell your Mom!

Well, that certainly clears things
up for me. How about you?
