The Social Network Song

To listen to the audio version please click here.

I'm at my laptop all the time?
I don't care, I'm really fine!
I stay at home, lie in my bed,
I'm surfing on the internet.

I don't have to leave any more,
I just stay inside my door.
I don't need a loving wife,
The net gives me all I need in life!

Although I don't meet my friends,
I have a lot of facebook fans.
I'm a friend of Obama,
You see, I'm very popular.

I don't have to leave any more,
I just stay inside my door.
I don't need a loving wife,
The net gives me all I need in life!

I have no girlfriend,do you mean?
I chat with sexy Angeline!
And when I feel I need some mates,
There's Styler 10 from Clash of Fates.

I don't have to leave any more,
I just stay inside my door.
I don't –

SHUT UP!
GET OUT OF BED!
COME BACK TO REAL LIFE!

(authors and performers: L. and M., boys, Germany)

 

Facebook

I can post everything on you,
no one knows if it is true.

I can stalk everybody,
it could be you or anybody.

I share everything for all to see,
Facebook, you are never boring me.

I present myself, I think it’s very good,
people all know me ‘cept my neighbourhood.

My list of friends can grow and grow,
including people I do not know.

Facebook, you have changed my life:
five hundred friends and not just five!

(author: A., girl, Germany)

 

The Social Network

Every day I go on the internet
Where me and my online friends have met.

I log onto YouTube, Twitter, Facebook
And they all have a different look.

Wikipedia is my friend
It will help me till the end.

Send a message all over the world,
blog about things that you have heard.

Facebook friends are everywhere
Even if they are not near.

Share your photos, send your posts
This will make you loved by most.

But be careful, know the rule:
Stealing data isn't cool!

A lot of information is sold
Even though we're never told.

So be careful what you do
Your information belongs to you!

(authors: B. and J., girls, Germany

 

The Phone Song

To listen to the audio version please click here. The lyrics have been translated from the Polish orginal.

And again the same story
I’m calling her for the hundredth time
Disturbed in my heart but euphoric
Hands trembling but the taste of joy

Will you answer today
Or you’ll push “cancel”
When you find time for me
Still the same story

I’ll call you one more time
Call me one more time
Call me one more time
Call me – you know my number

And again the same story
She calls me for the hundredth time
Disturbed in her heart but euphoric
Hands trembling but the taste of joy

Shall I answer today?
Shall I quit?
It’s time for recharging
Still the same story

Come on (C’mon) call me one more time!
Call me one more time
Call me one more time
Call me – you know my number

The phone went black for the hundredth time
It’s time for recharging

Call me one more time!
