Return Of The Mac!

[UPDATE: 22 MARCH 2006]: So this page actually gets a lot of hits from people doing internet searches on the actual "Return of the Mack" song. While this article really isn't about that, I've decided to place some information about it at the end of this article (and the lyrics too).

***

Remember that song? It goes:

(Return of the Mac) once again
(Return of the Mac) pump up the world
(Return of the Mac) watch my flow
(You know that I'll be back) here I go


It's a song by Mark Morrison who happens to be a one hit wonder from the 90s era. The song is actually entitled "Return of the MACK", with a K at the end, but who cares? Although it was quite popular back then. However, I am not singing this song out of a sense of nostalgia from my days as a youthful teenager, but rather, I sing in jubilation for my Mac is now BACK! Yes, after more than two months of waiting for it to be fixed, it is now once again in my possession. TWO MONTHS, you emphatically say? Yes. It took that long. Why, you ask? Well, I find that there is no better way to explain it than by telling you that the service center I sent it to SUCKS! But anyway, it's here. I picked it up at the service center last Tuesday and they tried to appease me by giving profuse apologies and measly freebies like mouse pads, keychains and a lapel mic. Although I must admit, I did like the lapel mic. But at any rate, my Mac seems to be working splendidly so I am once again in a celebratory mood. Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!

Also, I know it's a little anti-climactic given that the new Intel iMacs just came out and the Macbook Pro is finally shipping, but I will post pictures of my PowerPC iMac G5 with built in iSight soon. It's still very nice to look at anyway. In the meantime, feel free to sing with me... (Return of the Mac) once again, (Return of the Mac) pump up the world, (Return of the Mac) watch my flow, (You know that I'll be back) here I go... Word.

As promised, here's some info on "Return of the Mack":

The song "Return of the Mack" was made popular by an artist named Mark Morrison back in the late 90's. The song is one of twelve tracks from his album also entitled "Return of the Mack" which was originally released in 11 March 1997. The album actually contains two "Return of the Mack" songs, the other one being "Return of the Mack (Da Beatminerz Remix)".

Return Of The Mack
Mark Morrison
Album: Return Of The Mack

Oh, oo-o-oh, come on, ooh, yeah
Well I tried to tell you so (yes, I did)
But I guess you didn't know, as I said the story goes
Baby, now I got the flow
'Cos I knew it from the start
Baby, when you broke my heart
That I had to come again, and show you that I'm real

(You lied to me) all those times I said that I love you
(You lied to me) yes, I tried, yes, I tried
(You lied to me) even though you know I'd die for you
(You lied to me) yes, I cried, yes, I cried

ONE
(Return of the Mack) it is
(Return of the Mack) come on
(Return of the Mack) oh my God
(You know that I'll be back) here I am
(Return of the Mack) once again
(Return of the Mack) pump up the world
(Return of the Mack) watch my flow
(You know that I'll be back) here I go

So I'm back up in the game
Running things to keep my swing
Letting all the people know
That I'm back to run the show
'Cos what you did, you know, was wrong
And all the nasty things you've done
So, baby, listen carefully
While I sing my come-back song

TWO
(You lied to me) 'cos she said she'd never turn on me
(You lied to me) but you did, but you do
(You lied to me) all these pains you said I'd never feel
(You lied to me) but I do, but I do, do, do

(Return of the Mack) here it is
(Return of the Mack) hold on
(Return of the Mack) don't you know
(You know that I'll be back) here I go
(Return of the Mack) oh little girl
(Return of the Mack) wants my pearl
(Return of the Mack) up and down
(You know that I'll be back) round and round
(repeat TWO, ONE)

(You know that I'll be back) don't you know

(Return of the Mack) here it is
(Return of the Mack) hold on
(Return of the Mack) be strong
(You know that I'll be back) here I go
(Return of the Mack) my little girl
(Return of the Mack) wants my pearl
(Return of the Mack) up and down
(You know that I'll be back) round and round
