Computer crashes: You've got to RAM your ROM

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the access of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
and the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
and your data are corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash,
your situation's hopeless and your system's gonna crash!

If the label on the cable on the table at your house
says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
but your packets want to tunnel to another protocol,
that's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall.

When the copy on your floppy's getting sloppy in the disk,
and the macro code instruction's causing unnecessary risk,
then you'll have to flash the memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM,
then quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your mom!
