I was working on my blog late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For Monster from the Web began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

(They did the mash) They did the Monster mash
(The Monster mash) It was an email smash
(They did the mash) It went out in a flash
(They did the mash) They did the Monster mash

From Gilford Road down in Dublin South-East
To the inboxes of the IT@Cork geeks
The message it came from Monster’s humble abode
But did they get consent? Oh no no no

(They did the mash) They did the Monster mash
(The Monster mash) The speling it waz trashh
(They did the mash) Tom blogged it in a flash
(They did the mash) And so began the backlash

Michele, he was just having fun
The blogging, it had just begun
But Monster, soon they got their wish
When the bloggers put their server on the big blacklist

The scene was rockin’, all were digging the sounds
Of “Pedro” and his comments, round and round,
But the IP address, it told no lies
It seems Monster fights back in a bad disguise

(It made a splash) That awful Monster mash
(The Monster mash) It was a blogging smash
(It was a mash) It caught on in a flash
(The blogging mash) About the Monster mash

Now one man decided to give Tom a ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
He left a message and shook his fist
And said, “I’ll see you in court” – well, that’s the gist

(A legal mash) It’s Monster’s legal mash
(A legal mash) But have they got the cash?
(Their legal mash) It does seem quite brash
(A legal mash) To start a legal mash

Now have they thought about their brand
That perhaps we don’t need such a heavy hand
Something quite simple, they could do
Say sorry, tell the truth, and start anew

(There’s a backlash) Against Monster’s mash
(Their email mash) It’s on Digg in a flash
(The spamming mash) It is a culture clash
(But if they trash) We’ve got it in our cache!

Thanks for all the comments! The sequel is here.
