This isn't really the return of Song Wednesdays, but it is wednesday, and this is a song, and I've got a bunch of songs that I've been working on, this is just one. I've been putting a few others up at http://www.youtube.com/hankschannel

This song, obviously, is about chat roulette, and how, when people can instantly make you disappear in the hopes of finding someone even slightly more interesting than you are, it can make you feel quite sad.

Of course, it's a funny song, but Chat Roulette does make me feel kind of bad for the world. Also, DON'T GO ON CHAT ROULETTE IF YOU ARE NOT OK WITH SEEING NAKED DUDES! Because most of chat roulette is naked dudes.

LYRICS AND CHORDS

Oh [Am]it seems so exciting, I can [G]talk to anyone
I just be[F]gin the game and [G]launch into the [Am]fun
But [Am]15 perverts later, I still [F]haven't had a chance
to talk to [G]anyone but that giant guy in [Am]woman's underpants

It's the [G]kind of instant judgement that I [Am]fear in the real world
where it [G]only takes a moment to rea[Am]lize you're not a girl
and then they [Am]click on next, the game is over, [F]yes I've lost again
But I [G]keep on trying anyway, because [Am]someday I soon I'll win.

And I [F]try to pour my [G]heart out
but [C]they keep clickin' [Am]next
because I'm [F]having a bad [G]day on chat rou[Am]lette
Yes I'm [F]having a bad [G]day on Chat Roul[C]ette

[F][G][C][Am][F][G][C]

And [Am]suddenly this cute girl [G]pops up on my screen
she's like the [F]answer to my prayers, the [Am]woman of my dreams
any she pauses on my face and I [F]think she could be mine
I say hel[G]lo, she smiles, I've got my chance and [Am]then she hits F-9

Then in her [G]place there is a rowdy group of [Am]angry brittish teens
[G]Followed by a person who does [Am]not want to be seen
And then a guy with awesome abs who [F]won't put on a shirt
and [G]then, of couse a very very [Am]long string of perverts

And I [F]try to pour my [G]heart out
but [C]they keep clickin' [Am]next
because I'm [F]having a bad [G]day on chat rou[Am]lette
Yes I'm [F]having a bad [G]day on Chat Roul[C]ette

The [F]pretty girls are all busy having [G]pleasant conversations
with [C]guys who've been nexting for [Am]hours
I [F]really should eliminate [G]all my expectations
I should [C]also, probably take a [Am]shower.
Then a [F]guy comes on and he see's me playin
And I can [G]tell he understands everything I'm saying
He [C]pulls down his guitar and he plays along

[Am][G][F][Am][Am][F][G][Am]

And I [F]try to pour my [G]heart out
but [C]they keep clickin' [Am]next
because I'm [F]having a bad [G]day on chat rou[Am]lette
Yes I'm [F]having a bad [G]day on Chat Roul[C]ette

Oh it seems so exciting I can talk to anyone,
Just begin the game and launch into the fun
But 15 perverts later I still haven't had the chance,
To talk to anyone but that giant guy in women's underpants.
It's the kind of instant judgment that I fear in the real world,
Where it only takes a moment to realize you're not a girl.
And they click on 'next' the game is over and yes I've lost again,
But I keep on trying anyway because someday soon I'll win.

And I try to pour my heart out,
But they keep clicking 'next'.
Cos' I'm having a bad day on Chat Roulette,
Oh I'm havin' a bad day on Chat Roulette.

And suddenly this cute girl, she pops up on my screen,
She's like the answer to my prayers, the woman of my dreams.
Yes she pauses on my face and I think she could be mine,
I say 'Hello', she smiles, I've got my chance and then she hits F9.

And then in her place is a group of rowdy British teens,
Followed by a person who does not wish to be seen.
And then a guy with awesome abs who won't put on his shirt,
And then of course a very very long string of perverts.

And I try to pour my heart out,
But they keep clicking 'next'.
Cos' I'm having a bad day on Chat Roulette,
Oh I'm havin' a bad day on Chat Roulette.

The pretty girls are busy having pleasant conversations with guys who have been nexting for hours,
Oh I really should eliminate all my expectations, I should also probably take a shower.

But then this guy comes on and he sees me playing and he suddenly understands everything I'm saying and he pulls down his guitar and he plays along.

And we try to pour my heart out,
But they keep clicking 'next'.
Cos' we're having a bad day on Chat Roulette,
Yes we're havin' a bad day on Chat Roulette.

Just to be clear because the internet is what it is unfortunately, Chat Roulette is a place for adults and I'm not gonna be on Chat Roulette. So don't go there looking for me. Because you won't find me, you'll will find things that no one wants to see.

Nonetheless I hope that you enjoyed it! Thank you so much to Tom Milsom, Kristina Horner and Luke Conard. And of course thank you to all the Nerdfighters who submitted clips of themselves looking bored when I asked Twitter for those videos. You should all take this as an invitation. When you follow me on Twitter sometimes you get to be in my music videos.

Kristina and Luke who were in that video have a band they are called 'All Caps'. They have a new album that just came out there's a link to it in the sidebar. There's also *gobble-dy-goop*. And I'm also gonna put up some links to a couple of music videos they did from that album so that you can enjoy them.

John, I will see you on Friday.

Don't unplug me,
Or just shut me down.
Please just love me,
With your steel heart.
I'd reboot you,
If you'd look at me.
