THE BALLAD OF JOE AND ELDA

without comments

Joseph Peschel © August, 2010

Fooling around again on Facebook
Trying to get someone to friend us
This guy he wrote back
Said, “You some kinda wack?”
You’d think we were some sort of fungus.

They say, “Joe, take it easy,”
I say, “Hey, don’t ignore me!”
The way things are going
They’re gonna Twitterize me

Finally updated my website,
Thinking about adding a blog
My editor wrote to say,
“You should tweet more, OK?”
I said, “I feel like some sort of birddog.”

They say, “Joe, take it easy,”
I say, “Hey, don’t ignore me!”
The way things are going
They’re gonna Twitterize me.

Went from my website to Twitter
Trimming my tweets for a post
The warning message said:
“Minus 6 characters in red”
I said, “We’re only trying to boast.”

They say, “Joe, take it easy,”
I say, “Hey, don’t ignore me!”
The way things are going
They’re gonna Twitterize me

Saving all your money to renew your domain,
Spamming out your site to everyone;
Last night, Elda said,
“Hey, Joe, when you’re dead,
Don’t take nothing with you but your URL.”

Made a quick trip to MySpace,
Decided there was nothing to see
And everyone claims,
“MySpace is so lame.”
I think it just needs some vitamin E.

They say, “Joe, take it easy,”
I say, “Hey, don’t ignore me!”
The way things are going
They’re gonna Twitterize me

Clicked a link back to my web page
It’s JosephPeschel.com
I know, I know…
’Tis shameless self-promo
But it beats watching a sit-com.

They say, “Joe, take it easy,”
I say, “Hey, don’t ignore me!”
The way things are going
They’re gonna Twitterize me
The way things are going
They’re gonna Twitterize me
