notes:
All right, fellas, just like we talked about on the bus, right?
I'm gonna count it off, here we go.

One, two, three, unh!

Ohhh yeah! We are BACK!

Awww, Herbert, thanks for getting the Milwaukee Handclap Enthusiast Ensemble back in the house. And the horns! I... How did you find them? That's amazing! Ohh! And the synthesizers, and... everything!

Ohhh!
I got a sad, sad story to tell everybody, though.
I had a little... I had a little accident.
It was all my fault. And I got nobody to blame but myself.
So listen, and take heed!

I was walking a tightrope
I fell off but I had a net
I slipped on some dropped soap
I didn't hurt, but I sure got wet

I got into a car crash
But I was ok cause I was belted in
(Wear your seatbelt, kids)
Things can happen in a quick flash
But sometimes, you just gotta take it on the chin

But there's one thing I did
I can't believe that I was so dumb
Might as well have been a little kid
Suckin' on my thumb

My computer stopped working
My hard drive started jerking
Sweat pourin' off my head
Turned out to be stone dead

I mean totally dead.
I mean, it, uh, it wouldn't even boot up.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha HAAAAAAH!
I am the god of hard drives and I saw that your files had not been backed up, which makes me very happy!
I did what demanded to be done.
The god of hard drives must be appeased!!!! Ha HAAA!

All my files deleted
Not a copy to be found
I was feeling defeated
No more music, not a single sound

All my files, all my taxes
All my cat memes, all my faxes
All my photos from Comic-Con
All of it was gone!

I mean everything.
It was just... It was just gone.
I didn't have copies.
It was just gone.

For a long time I was depressed
Couldn't bring myself to sing 
Just thinkin about it got me stressed
You know, I didn't wanna do a thing

But now I'm back! Unh!
And I'm backin' it up!
Ain't no God of Hard Drives gonna keep me down,
I'm back! Ha!
And I'm backin' it up!
I mean, like, really backin' it up, like, three places.

I say I'm back! Hunh!
Gotta get backin' it up!
Cloud storage, off-site, on-site, everywhere!
Gotta get back! Huh!
Gotta get backin' it up!

Hey, everybody, come on in, come on...
All right, here we go!

I said I'm back! (He's back!) Yeah!
And I'm backin' it up! (He's backin' it up!)
Everywhere!
I said I'm back! (He's back!) Yeah! HUUH!
I'm backin' it up (He's backin' it up!)

Oh I love having a chorus!

I'm back! (He's back!) UUNH!
And I'm backin' it up! (He's backin' it up!)
I said I'm back! (He's back!)
Optical, tape, everything!
I'm backin' it up! (He's backin' it up!)

All right y'all... y'all drop out now, I got something to tell everybody:

Back your hard drive up!

One more time, by myself:
Back your hard drive up!

All right, everybody, come in now
Back your hard drive up! UH!

Back your hard drive up!

Back your hard drive up! 
Cause I mean, you never know when something's gonna...
(Back your hard drive up!)
I, uh, all right, it's just gonna fail!
And uh, you got now warning.
(Back your hard drive up!)
Especially if you're using SSDs, I mean, they just
They just stop!
You gotta, you gotta
Back your hard drive up!

Or you could just lose everything.
And you don't wanna lose everything!
(Back your hard drive up!)
It's a... It's a terrible feeling.
It even...
(Back your hard drive up!)
It's just sickening!
You just, you just look and,
You just look at a screen and there's like nothing!
Back your hard drive up!

I mean, I... uh, 
Just back your hard drive up, that's all I'm trying to tell you.
(Back your hard drive up!)
If you haven't gotten the message by now I don't know what I can tell you, but...
(Back your hard drive up!)
But you need to back your hard drive up.
Like these guys are sayin',
Back your hard drive up!

Uh, Just please, back your your hard drive up.
(Back your hard drive up!)
That's all, all I'm asking
Just back it up.
(Back your hard drive up!)
Please, just back it up.
Back it up twice!

On the one!

Back your hard drive up!
UNH!
