It's All About The Pentiums Lyrics - Weird Al Yankovic

Review The Song (6)



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
sponsored links
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 Helen 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 all 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 operating 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
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??

for everyone here talking about the "monitor 40 inches wide", keep in mind that this album was released in 1999. I am pretty sure that technology was not available when he wrote the song. Just like the line "I got me a hundred gigabytes of RAM". I mean come on, people, it is a song with a general idea being expressed, so don't take it so seriously.



just a thought | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/26/10

well i dont know about the rest of the planet ... but arrond here is some one says they have a screen 40" wide .. they basicly talking about a normal 40" wide screen doesent mean their saying that the screen is actually 40 inches wide ... but like i said .. things are different everywhere



Whats with the fighting? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/21/08

look, i love this song... and i cant see what's with this fighting. You both say you like it... and no one ever said anything about: "of how technology changes so fast. one day your computer is top of the line, the next month it's at the bottom of the heap"
The main thing the other guy didn't like was the plasma screen moniter 40" wide- part. To answer that, there are actualy computer screens that size... the goverment use some, and people working on maps use some also.(i should know my dad is into GPS stuff so he bought something like a 22" by 19" and he isnt that fanatic about it... i could easily see someone using a plasma tv for thier computer.



Duh | Reviewer: Chuck | 10/5/07

"Ok it is a cool song but it's not true what he says in the song. Come on a Monitor forty inches wide? There is no such thing as a monitor forty inches wide. Other then that, it is a cool song and video too, nice song Weird Al Yankovic."

That is much better...anyway you are an idiot. HE is making fun of how technology changes so fast. one day your computer is top of the line, the next month it's at the bottom of the heap. You don't get it obviously.

You can also hook TV's up to PCs for monitors.
