Tech Support

Lyrics: Maureen S. O'Brien, 12/97?
Music: ttto "Hell", Squirrel Nut Zippers
If you don't know this tune, you can download a MIDI from CoilaX.

And go see the Squirrel Nut Zippers in concert! They are great!

Here in tech support
We are appealing to a higher court.
Now we whine and cry, it's true;
If you were tech support, then you'd cry too!


People listen attentively
While you tell them how, forty times or three.
But as soon as you leave them there alone,
Then they will forget and get back on the phone.


This is a job for your magic powers
Which you must apply for endless hours
Wrists are extended and teeth are ground
There's a hundred questions for each answer found.


Savvy, skill, tact, tech: deploy all
Your techie mind
The job you leave behind tonight
Has gotten twice as bad by morning light!

Now the T and the E and the C and the H
And the S and the U P-P O-R-T
Learn the ropes, learn your doom,
Then get pushed into a padded room! (repeat verse) CHORUS
