That was totally awesome.

Favourite lines "and tramline 3 smells of pee" and "finnish is bloody difficult to learn" :)

I loved the finnish line, too :D Oh, and the ringtone bit. I may have to make that into an actual ringtone.

In fact, I'm going to put the lyrics right here. Hope you don't mind :)

You can't get rich by working
and love doesn't last forever.
In the public sauna they never ask
if it's ok to throw water on the stove.
Old forests are cut down and turned into toilet paper.
And still all the toilets are always out of paper.
Why products on sale drive people crazy?
In the middle of Helsinki they built another shopping hell.
My neighbour spies on me through the peephole
whenever I come home with guests
and he always arrives too early for his sauna turn.

We always lose to Sweden in Hockey and Eurovidion.
Christmas season starts earlier every year.
Why do people never agree with me?
Jobs go to China,
tramline 3 smells of pee.

It's not fair! It's not fair ! It's not fair! It's not fair!

Why is the "Metre Pizza"only half a metre long?
And why is the cord of the vacuum cleaner too short?
– just like summer.
Going to work every morning, then home at night
eventually you lose your mind.
The battery on my mobile is always going flat.
and all ring tones are just as irritating.
Ring tones are all irritating.
Ring tones are all irritating.
Ring tones…

Sorry, I'm in a bad spot.
Call me later.

When you buy furniture
all you get is a pile of boards.
Tissues are too rough
and I can never find them when I need to sneeze.
My tights slip when I'm walking.
There is always a tall man in front of me.
At work they pat me on the shoulder
then stab me in the back.

My dreams are boring.
Reference numbers are too long.
Women are still paid less than men.
Bullshitters get on too well in life.
The daily paper is too thick.
Why always me?

It's not fair! It's not fair! It's not fair! It's not fair!

The queue for the dentist is over six moths long.
After waiting for so long,
the whole tooth must be pulled out.
Nice shirts get discoloured in the wash,
but ugly shirts never do.
People have no time for Fair Trade goods
but still rush to where they grow.
I can't escape the headlines of the tabloids.
The weather's always foul.
I don't get laid enough…
!@#$%^&*!@#$%^&*

We always lose to Sweden in Hockey and Eurovidion.
Christmas season starts earlier every year.
Why do people never agree with me?
Jobs go to China,
tramline 3 smells of pee.

My flat is tiny yet it eats all my money.
So I'm left with nothing
to save the world with.
People only take a stand in sms-forums.
Idiots don't know which side to stand on the escalator.
My husband snores too loud
and he walks too slowly
and only washes his hockey-shirts.
And my wife always complains!

It's not fair! It's not fair! It's not fair! It's not fair!

Evenings wasted hiding from the TV licence inspector
because I don't want to pay for sports and reality TV.
The employment agency only needs java programmers.
Old people are fed with tranquilisers so they won't complain.
My friend likes his mobile phone
more than he likes me.
Our ancestors could have picked a sunnier place to be.

My dreams are boring.
Reference numbers are too long.
Women are still paid less than men.
Bullshitters get on too well in life.
The daily paper is too thick.
Why always me?

It's not fair! It's not fair! It's not fair! It's not fair!

thanks for posting this

That sent a shiver up my spine. Very beautiful and sad.
Humanity in a song.

I think I'm only going to be reading your LJ for a while, as you seem to present all the best bits of youtube and the internet in general :-)
