I love my computer,
You make me feel alright
Every waking hour
And every lonely night.

I love my computer
For all you give to me:
Predictable errors
And no identity.

And it's never been quite so easy,
I've never been quite so happy.
All I need to do is click on you
And we'll be joined in the most soulless way,
And we'll never ruin each other's day
'Cause when I'm through I just click
And you just go away.

I love my computer,
You're always in the mood.
I get so turned on
When I turn on you.

I love my computer,
You never ask for more.
You can be a princess
Or you can be my whore.

And it's never been quite so easy,
I've never been quite so happy.
All I need to do is click on you
And we'll be joined in the most soulless way,
And we'll never ruin each other's day
'Cause when I'm through I just click
And you just go away.

The world outside is so big,
But it's safe in my domain
Because to you
I'm just a number
And a clever screen name.

All I need to do is click on you
And we'll be together for eternity.
And no one is ever gonna take my love from me
Because I've got security, her password and a key.

Info from 'The Answer'
Song meaning Greg Graffin: "It's tongue-in-cheek. It's just more of a prediction song. People are spending more time being entertained in "real time" than by real people, and that leads to a lot of questions.
