lyrics

It's not too hard to these days to be a bully or a jerk
And the Internet cuts out most of the time-consuming work
But please consider what you do
when people don't agree with you
Be useful, fun and friendly instead of going berzerk

Don't be a dick!
Don't be a dick today!
there's no need be a prick whenever you don't get your way
communities are better when we all try to be nice!
so even when you're mad
don't be a dick.

In your journey through this life there may someday be a time
when you think that breaking Wheaton's law would not be such a crime
but for today let's take vacation from that malice and from trolling
it's Wil Wheaton's Day today so have a beer and let's get rolling!
