I have partial recording from Ireland about dating on the internet. I think it may be called Tom Dot Com.
The first lines are Oh come all you lads that surf the net and listen unto me, For I fell in with bad company in virtual reality.
Anyone know the lyrics and who wrote it?

Written by Eugene Lambe, a Dubliner exiled in Kinvara (like meself!) - piper, pipemaker, singer, songwriter, sailor, boatbuilder....

If nobody comes up with the words, I'll have a word with him.

Regards

Aaaaaargh!

I've just met Eugene Lambe - who promised to email me the words to Tom Dot Com but disclaimed all responsibility for writing them! He says it was written by Maurice Leyden, a fine Northern Ireland singer who is also a friend of mine, as it happens.

Apologies for the confusion re authorship - I'll make doubly sure to post the words ASAP!

Regards

Here's the words, as provided by Eugene:

___________________________________________
TOM.COM

Melody   The Homes of Donegal

Come all you lads who surf the net and listen unto me
For I fell in bad company in virtual reality
I loved her electronically, she was the icon of my life
And every night I took great delight in surfing for a wife

One night upon the internet a site I chanced to access
I spied a dame with no user name and she asked for my address
This female sent me an email all the way from @. iol
And sure I replied call me Tom.Com! for that is the protocol

I knocked on my love's Windows and she asked me to come in
And every night we took great delight in committing Mortal Sin
All night long we'd browse and carouse until darkness began to fade
And sure I fell head over heels in love with my charming Virtual Maid

She's a beauty queen with eyes of green, this vision on my screen
She's one of God's finest creatures that ever has been seen
You could hunt the net from here to Tibet, yet no one could match her fame
And I bless the day that I happened to stray on that dame with no user name

I asked her would she marry me but she said that ne'er could be
For she had got a laptop lad networked to her PC
She said he'd surf home soon again and true she would remain
Till she would wed in his domain and change her user name

Well now my lads the news is bad I'm cut down in my prime
For a virus struck and it brought bad luck - I'm left in terminal decline
They said it was the VD - U's, I could no longer see
And my love went down with system shut down and that was the end for me

So now my lads who surf the net and go from site to site
Don't stray too far from your own home page don't stay up late at night
For I was born an only son and my parents called me Tom
But I died a Virtual Lover - remember Tom.Com

Regards
