OMG....This is totally forums!


These are the words to the song and this is the source. Its set to "Gives you Hell"

I wake up every morning
And I head to my PC
To read about PS3
But when I check the gaming forum
Your mistakes are all I see
A grammatical catastrophe

I would like to chat but you just can’t spell, you should learn to spell
It’s not spelled like that, you should learn to spell you should learn to spell

I’d like to make suggestions…but I can’t read what you write, and I’m trying with all my might
When I posted some corrections, I didn’t mean to start a fight, but the thread flamed on all night

Well maybe you’re dyslexic
Or maybe you’re a moron

When you’re talking games you know who to blame if you just can’t spell
At your favorite site you should spell it right you should learn to spell
This goes for Wii and 360 and PC as well
It’s all hard to read so you simply need to learn how to spell
Gotta learn to spell

I know you’re probably thinking to yourself, that it’s just words on a screen
Everybody knows what I mean

But numbers aren’t letters
And U and R are words

Well your NeoGAF message made them laugh cause you could not spell
Over at GameSpot reputation’s shot cause you just can’t spell
And they agree at Quarter to Three and GamersHell
You might try again at IGN once you learn to spell

So it’s I before E except after C
And sometimes “its” does not need an apostrophe
But you don’t even care about “they’re,” “there,” and “their”
It’s like you learned to speak from texting on your cell

When you’re talking games we know who to blame if you just can’t spell
At your favorite site you should spell it right you should learn to spell
If a dictionary’s kinda scary, what the hell?
Then you’re a fool, go back to school and learn to spell

On the internet, this is what you get, people who can’t spell [you should learn to spell]
On the gaming boards, you will be ignored if you just can’t spell [you should learn to spell]
Do only fools use grammar rules where the gamers dwell?
The written word seems so absurd when you can’t spell [you should learn to spell]
I wrote this song cause you typed it wrong and you couldn’t tell [you should learn to spell]
It’s not much fun as the only one here who can spell

Funny!
I mean we all make mistakes here and there, but gah! The internet really is a grammatical mess.

The apostrophes are the ones that bug me most. An apostrophe is used for contractions and for possessives, people... NOT PLURALS (well except plural possessives, but the difference between 's and s' is another lesson entirely) There can be an S on the end of something WITHOUT it needing an apostrophe!

There is this chick on my Facebook who constantly updates with:

"Good Morning Facebooker's"

And every time I want to see it, I want to scream.

Re: cooool
Thanks! I like it too. I think you said at the end it gets hard to understand? If so then its all about people who play online games and go to forums. They tend to not have the best spelling.
