"Welcome, U've got mail" {AOL sample}
(Computer)
It was Sunday night, instead of doin' what I usually do I...

I scan my computer lookin' 4 a site (Computer)
Somebody 2 talk 2, funny and bright
I scan my computer lookin' 4 a site (Computer)
Make believe it's a better world, a better life

Nothin' on TV I ain't seen b4
Another murder on the news, I can't take no more
Evil incorporated blowin' up bombs and thangs
I have a child, huh, I have a lot 2 explain
I could write a letter, but who would I send it 2?
It was Sunday night, instead of doin' what I usually do I...

I scan my computer lookin' 4 a site (Computer)
Somebody 2 talk 2, funny and bright
I scan my computer lookin' 4 a site, mmm (Computer)
Make believe it's a better world, a better life

I called an old friend of mine just the other day
No congratulations, no respect paid
All she did was wonder if the rumors were true
I said, "No, I ain't dead yet, but what about U?"
I can count my friends with a peace sign: 1, 2
It was Sunday night, instead of doin' what I usually do I...

I scan my computer lookin' 4 a site, mmm (Computer)
Somebody 2 talk 2, funny and bright (Oh)
I scan my computer lookin' 4 a site, mmm (Computer)
Make believe it's a better world, a better life
A better life
I got no mail, my computer
Ooh

I told them I don't wanna see a doctor unless he's lonely 2
Every Sunday night, instead of doin' what I usually do I...

I scan my computer lookin' 4 a site (Computer)
Somebody 2 talk 2, funny and bright
I scan my computer lookin' 4 a site (Computer)
Make believe it's a better world, a better life...
"Goodbye" {AOL sample}
