The Duck Survives

First I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking that my blog was lost,
My blog had died
But then I opened up my template
And I saw something was wrong
I grew strong
I learned how to carry on
HTML?
Oh what the hell
I just opened up some caches
And then something rung a bell
And though it was well past midnight
There was no need for new templates
I opened Frontpage
(It's this software from Bill Gates)

Open File, Save, Cut Copy Paste
Just a few clicks now
Though I'm sleepy and in haste
Just don't want to go to bed until my blog is back online
That would mean nightmares
But now the Duck is fine
The Duck abides
The Duck survives
My destiny is calling me
The Duck is still alive
I've got all my life to quack
And my jetpack on my back
And I will thrive
The duck survives
quack...quack

It took all the strength I had
To keep my feet unclogged
kept trying hard to mend
the pieces of my broken blog
and I spent so many minutes
just feeling sorry for myself
I'm quacking still
There's a smile upon my bill,
and you see me
A Duck that's scarred
A Duck that spent a midnight
with a nude sidebar
and so you felt like dropping in
to mock my blank website
Well now you dig this, surfer
This Duck knows how to fight

Open File, Save, Cut Copy Paste
Just a few clicks now
Though I'm sleepy and in haste
Just don't want to go to bed until my blog is back online
That would mean nightmares
But now the Duck is fine
The Duck abides
The Duck survives
My destiny is calling me
The Duck is still alive
I've got all my life to quack
And my jetpack on my back
And I will thrive
The Duck survives,
quack...quack...
