SHARP COMPUTING: The Reinstalling Windows Song

(This sharp little ditty is to be sung to the tune of "When I'm Cleaning Windows" by George Formby)

I bought a new computer,
It cost two thousand dollars,
But every time I switch it on
It keeps on falling down.

I used to think it was my friend
Now it drives me round the bend;
You'd be surprised the time I spend
Reinstalling Windows.

I switch it on but what is this?
There's something wrong with CONFIG.SYS?
This isn't my idea of bliss,
Reinstalling Windows.

Reboot again and what is that?
I've gone and lost my SYSTEM.DAT?
Would you ever credit that?
Reinstalling Windows.

I want to share my printers and
I want to share my files,
I want to share my anger 'cos
It drives me bloomin' wild.

Load disk four, oh what fun!
It says it helps you get things done;
Every day now everyone's
Reinstalling Windows.

Load disk ten and it will say
All you do is plug and play
So why do I spend every day
Reinstalling Windows?

It can't locate my printer
And it can't locate my mouse;
The other day it told me
They were in Bill Gates's house.

Still unplugged, still unplayed,
I've E-mailed God in search of aid
He's far too busy he's afraid
Reinstalling Windows.

Up at dawn for one more try;
Does it work? Can pigs fly?
How do I expect to die?
Reinstalling Windows.

It doesn't like my modem and
Detests all CD-ROMs;
let's see if Setup Wizard
Recognizes bombs.

I used to like a drink or three;
No time now, don't call for me;
I'm going to spend eternity
Reinstalling Windows.
