Twitter, the musical.

My friend over at the Ad Contrarian (http://adcontrarian.blogspot.com/) predicts that someday there will be a Twitter Musical. I decided to jump the gun and write what is sure to be a hit song from that yet-to-be-staged extravaganza.

"I Twitter Therefore I Am."
(Plaintively.)
How can I tell
My relations and friends,
The things that I’m doing,
My life without end?

The burgers I’m eating,
The shoes I just bought,
Doing the things,
An egotist ought.

How can I chronicle,
Every move, every cough?
And prove in the process,
I’m always on, never off?

It’s all about me,
I’m the world’s epicenter,
It’s all about me,
I’m not just a venter.

I am important,
Only I matter,
I am as key
As a fireman’s ladder.

I sum up my life,
In 140 character bursts,
You know all my lasts,
And you’ll know all my firsts.

It’s all about me,
I’m the measure of things,
When it comes to self-centered-ness
I’m the king of all kings.

Oh,
I tweet, therefore I am,
Oh, tweetito ergo sum,
I’ll tweet and I’ll tweet and I’ll then tweet some more,
I wish I had more room.
I'm sure I'm a bore.

REFRAIN
It’s all about me,
I’m the measure of things,
When it comes to self-centered-ness
I’m the king of all kings.

I am so interesting,
Follow me, follow me,
The things that I do,
Oh, the things that you'll see.

My cab ride was bumpy,
My dinner was cold,
I called to complain,
And they put me on hold.

and out...
