93 (who?)

(a.k.a. The Microsoft Word Alphabet Song)

Hit CTRL + N for a blank new .doc(x),
Let's get this party started;
Or CTRL + O to open and carry on
From where you last departed.

CTRL + D to choose and edit fonts:
They come in every shape and size;
Comic Sans may try to tempt you,
But Arial is far more wise.

Why not try CTRL + B, I or U
To makeover your typeface?
CTRL + F, G, H are a loyal team:
They'll find, go to and replace.

Fancy a match of Word tennis?
CTRL + L, E, R, J will set the stage
For you to rally your lines of text
Back and forth across the page.

CTRL + A's the secret to selecting all:
It'll highlight everything,
While CTRL + Q does the job of clearing
Your paragraph formatting.

CTRL + C and X are copy and cut;
CTRL + V will then duly paste;
CTRL + T and M are for tabs and indents –
Don't let that space just go to waste.

CTRL + K rules the hyperlinks
If you're wired to the net;
But first it's F7 for a quick spell-check
You're sure not to regret!

Wish I had CTRL + Z to undo
Mistakes I've made in real life,
And CTRL + Y to ferry words to and from
The BACKSPACE afterlife.

Press CTRL + P to print off your work
Instead of putting it in the trash,
And remember to CTRL + S frequently
Before the inevitable crash!

Now I've done the whole alphabet
And I think that should cover it…
But wait, I've forgotten just one letter:
I wonder what CTRL + W———————
...Or the Command button for Mac users. :stare:

Written just for laughs, and the last line is a four-letter word that rhymes with "it". ;)

The universal name for that button is Super key, or at least that's what us Linux users call it...

Now go make a YouTube video of you singing this.

Haha, you really don't want to hear me singing... :lol:
