I hate computers , I hate computers,
I hate computers , I hate computers.........

You want techie parodies?
I've got dozens of the buggers...
e.g. "Shut Down the Server" to "Waltzing Matilda"
"Mend my PC" to "Under the Sea"
"No IntToReal" to "Run to the Hills" by Iron Maiden
"Three-fingered Salute" to "Four-Legged Friend"
..and one for the real old-timers: "The Oldest PC In Town"
