You are my router, my packet router.
You move my data from port to port.
My only terror is checksum error.
Please don't say 'quit, retry, abort'.
The other morning, I went out surfing
Highways and byways of th' World Wide Web.
Although connected, was redirected,
So I switched to dialup instead.
I'm daisy-chaining ten hubs and straining
The whole damn network; it's way too big.
Can't make my Wi-Fi come out of standby
Without running I P CONFIG.
Ain't got no cable to keep me stable,
No fiber optics, no shielded pair.
No RG five nine, nothin' but phone line,
So I face my blue screen and stare.
And when my net lag approaches jet lag
Packet collisions make surfing hell.
When V dot nine two no longer will do,
Then I'll switch to ADSL.
