The Internet – To The Tune of The Love Shack By The B52’s

Hello everyone. I appear to have developed a new addiction hobby alongside blogging. Rewriting the lyrics for songs is really fun, and people seem to be enjoying reading them too. I can assure you this weeks parody song is not at all rude or naughty (unlike last weeks offering) but I think it will still make you giggle, so without further ado here’s the song.

The Intenet (to the tune of The Love Shack by The B52’s)

If you see a small sign in a paper that says, £10 a month for the internet.

Internet yeah.

It’s the information super highway.

Googling a foreign getaway,

Searching for a cheep holiday.

I got me a laptop, it’s as quick as a snail, and I’m logging on now to the internet.

I got me a tablet, and a smart phone as well, so hurry up and bring your PayPal money.

The internet is a little old place where we can get together.

Internet baby, internet baby.

Internet baby, internet.

Internet baby internet.( Oh baby that’s where its at)

Bloggers say stay away fools, for stats rule on the internet.

Well there’s Blogger and Weebly and there’s Typepad too,

But WordPress is king, of the self hosting thing.

Facebook in the front room.

Tumblr in the kitchen.

Instagram the bedroom.

Twitter on the toilet!

The internet is a little old place where we can get together,

Internet baby. (internet baby)

Internet, that’s where it’s at,

Internet, that’s where it’s at

Blogging and a tweeting.

Sharing and a liking.

Wearing what you feel like, cus nobody’s watching.

A post goes viral, when everybody shares it around and around and around and around.

Everybody’s googling, everybody’s tweeting baby,

Followers gone up, but Klout scores just gone down.

Everybody’s googling, everybody’s tweeting baby,

Funky little blog

Funky little blog.

I got me a laptop, it’s as slow as a snail, and there’s an Amazon sale.

I got me a tablet, and a smart phone as well, so hurry up and bring your PayPal money.

The internet is a little old place where we can get together.

Internet baby, internet baby

Internet baby, internet,

Internet baby internet.( Oh baby that’s where it’s at)

Bang bang bang on the keyboard

(be a little softer sugar)

Bang bang bang on the keyboard

(I can’t view you)

Bang bang (on the keyboard)

Bang bang (on the keys)

Bang bang (on the keyboard)

Bang bang……..

You what? Facebook’s down!

Internet, baby, internet.

Internet baby internet (that’s where it’s at)

Internet baby internet. (that’s where it’s at)

Internet baby internet.

A lot of blog loving on the internet.

I hope you enjoyed this little song. What other songs do you think would make good tunes for a parody?

      I guess I spend 2 to 3 hours on it once I have an idea in my head. Thats the hard bit, chosing a song and a line of a few words in the song that will give me the focus of the parody. Xx

    Brilliant! Really made me smile, thank you. How about something to the tune of ‘Daydream Believer’ by the Monkees – that’s a catchy one. Look forward to your next song – just signed up to follow your blog so I don’t miss it 🙂


      February 3, 2016 at 1:36 pm

      Oh I love daydream believer, i will have to have a think on that one. And thank you for following xxxx

    I won’t lie, Tracy. I only skimmed this one out of fear that the original would get stuck in my head for the entire day. I’m sure it was awesome though! lol

    “Bang bang bang on the keyboard” You have actually seen me trying to “make it work” then? 😉

    You have a talent for song lyrics. Far better than the original in my opinion.

    Dawn x


      February 4, 2016 at 12:22 pm

      Thank you kind lady. I think thats my go to response when the laptop is being an arse, just bash the keys harder xx
