"It's All About The Pentiums" as written by Christopher Wallace, Sean Combs, Sean D Jacobs, Deric Micheal Angelettie, David Styles, Jason T Phillips, Linda Laurie, Terry M Etlinger, Kimberly Jones and Alfred Matthew Yankovic....
It's all about the Pentiums, baby
Uhh, uh - huh, yeah
Uhh, uh - huh, yeah
It's all about the Pentiums, baby
It's all about the Pentiums, baby
It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)
It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)
Yeah

What y'all wanna do?
Wanna be hackers? Code crackers? Slackers
Wastin' time with all the chatroom yakkers?
9 to 5, chillin' at Hewlett Packard?
Workin' at a desk with a dumb little placard?
Yeah, payin' the bills with my mad programming skills
Defraggin' my hard drive for thrills
I got me a hundred gigabytes of RAM
I never feed trolls and I don't read spam
Installed a T1 line in my house
Always at my PC, double - clickin' on my mizouse
Upgrade my system at least twice a day
I'm strictly plug - and - play, I ain't afraid of Y2K
I'm down with Bill Gates, I call him "Money" for short
I phone him up at home and I make him do my tech support
It's all about the Pentiums, what?
You've gotta be the dumbest newbie I've ever seen
You've got white - out all over your screen
You think your Commodore 64 is really neato
What kinda chip you got in there, a Dorito?
You're usin' a 286? Don't make me laugh
Your Windows boots up in what, a day and a half?
You could back up your whole hard drive on a floppy diskette
You're the biggest joke on the Internet
Your database is a disaster
You're waxin' your modem, tryin' to make it go faster
Hey fella, I bet you're still livin' in your parents' cellar
Downloadin' pictures of Sarah Michelle Gellar
And postin' "Me too!" like some brain - dead AOL - er
I should do the world a favor and cap you like Old Yeller
You're just about as useless as jpegs to Hellen Keller

It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)
It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)
It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)
It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)

Now, what y'all wanna do?
Wanna be hackers? Code crackers? Slackers
Wastin' time with all the chatroom yakkers?
9 to 5, chillin' at Hewlett Packard?

Uh, uh, loggin' in now
Wanna run wit my crew, hah?
Rule cyberspace and crunch numbers like I do?
They call me the king of the spreadsheets
Got 'em printed out on my bedsheets
My new computer's got the clocks, it rocks
But it was obsolete before I opened the box
You say you've had your desktop for over a week?
Throw that junk away, man, it's an antique
Your laptop is a month old? Well that's great
If you could use a nice, heavy paperweight
My digital media is write - protected
Every file inspected, no viruses detected
I beta tested every operation system
Gave props to some, and others? I dissed 'em
While your computer's crashin', mine's multitaskin'
It does all my work without me even askin'
Got a flat - screen monitor forty inches wide wide
I believe that your says "Etch - A - Sketch" on the side
In a 32 - bit world, you're a 2 - bit user
You've got your own newsgroup, "alt. total - loser"
Your motherboard melts when you try to send a fax
Where'd you get your CPU, in a box of Cracker Jacks?
Play me online? Well, you know that I'll beat you
If I ever meet you I'll control - alt - delete you
What? What? What? What? What?

It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)
It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)
It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)
It's all about the Pentiums! (It's all about the Pentiums, baby)
Now, what y'all wanna do?
Wanna be hackers? Code crackers? Slackers
Wastin' time with all the chatroom yakkers?
9 to 5, chillin' at Hewlett Packard?
What?

    General Commentvery interesting how weird Al puts in a lot of computer stuff into a song (for example: "if i ever meet you i'll Ctrl-Alt-Dlt you"). it is definitely a song explaining how some people think their computer nerds when they are not.

    General CommentBeing a computer nerd, I can really appreciate this song, but mostly this line here:

    "And postin' \"Me too!\" like some brain-dead AOL-er..."

    AOL-ers (as a whole) have to be the dumbest group of people alive. "Me too." That's classic. Except for an AOL-er, it would be more like "me2"

    The lyrics are pure genius. When I first heard this song, I nearly burst out laughing. It's too good. :-D You should get the album _just_ for this song. Trust me, it's worth it.

    General CommentI do like the song as well. I do find it odd that two people would look at the same song within 2 weeks of each other, a song that is over 4 years old. Perhaps not so odd I suppose, seeing as Weird Al is a very talented music artist.

    General CommentIn my opinion, this song is a lighthearted jab at the underlying similarites between the "ghetto" culture and the "1337 |-|4X012" culture. Both of them are a bit based on arrogance and superiority, just expressed through different ways. Think about countless rap songs about making it to the top and being the elite (no pun intended) of the group- Now apply this to a genius, pale fleshed, skinny teenager or young adult with thick glasses pwning n00bs in Counterstrike.

    oh, yeah, funny song. I remember hearing it when it was new and I was 12 or so (and ironically was still using a 386), and not understand anything. Now I get it all, feel a sense of "right on!" when he says "braindead AOL-er," and swoon for a time when we can actually have 100 GB of RAM.

    *swoooon*
