I’m only Tweeting

(To be sung to the tune of The Beatles’ I’m Only Sleeping)

When I wake up early in the morning,
Lift my head, I’m still yawning
Get up, start up, sign up, wake up, open eye,
Read the mind of Stephen Fryyy

Must report, here’s
my 140,
Follow me or die,
I’m only Tweeting

Happy Halloween, Happy Onam,
Warren Ellis spewing venom
Britney Spears’ intellectual views
aching hearts, breaking news

Come on, make my day
I’m miles away
And after all
I’m only Tweeting

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
Tweetdeck rocks

Datastream flows fast and neverending
Avatar, will you stop trending?

Please don’t be a drag
Join my hashtag
Cos after all
I’m only Tweeting

Keeping an eye on the world going by my window
(this is a Retweet)

Good morning you say but here it’s midnight,
Gaiman links broke my website,
So much to say, so little space, oh hell,
Must shorten my URL

Please don’t bore me, don’t
ignore me
And I’ll follow you back,
I’m only Tweeting
