Bye, bye The Sims Online

    Since Donovan had the courage to write "Lee Clampett"

    I have the courage to write "Bye, bye The Sims Online"

    sung to the tune of "American Pie"


    A long long time ago
    I can still remember
    How TSO used to make us smile
    And I knew if we had our say
    That we could get EA to sway
    And maybe they would let us stay awhile
    But every day the news was clear
    That the very end was near
    No news on the website
    We couldn't keep up our fight
    I can't remember if we cried
    When the rumors TSO would die
    But something touched us deep inside
    The day TSO died
    So...


    Bye, bye The Sims Online
    Sold my rares for 10 billion and said good-bye
    Them good ole bots were bleeding EA dry
    Singing this'll be the day TSO dies
    This'll be the day TSO dies


    We can't make much simoleans
    And do you have faith in the new system
    Just cause Luc tells you to?
    Now do you believe in being poor?
    Can this way be a TSO lure?
    And can you teach me to survive for sure?
    Well, I know we all want trust in Luc
    'cause we all would be gone and that would suck
    We all kicked off our shoes
    'cause we had nothing to lose
    We were lonely simmies in a lonely land
    With worthless simoleans in our hand
    But we all knew that we were damned
    The day TSO died
    We started singing



    Bye, bye The Sims Online
    Sold my rares for 10 billion and said good-bye
    Them good ole bots were bleeding EA dry
    Singing this'll be the day TSO dies
    This'll be the day TSO dies

    Now, for 3 years we've been on our own
    With nothing to do but skill like drones
    But that's not how it used to be
    When the game was new it was bot free
    And we were all just newbies
    We all learned how to play nicey
    Oh and while we simmed we learned a lot
    Some simmies started making bots
    The courtroom was adjourned
    No verdict was returned
    And while EA ignored our plees
    To give us updates weekly
    We just kept playing on nicely
    The day the TSO died
    We were singing

    Bye, bye The Sims Online
    Sold my rares for 10 billion and said good-bye
    Them good ole bots were bleeding EA dry
    Singing this'll be the day TSO dies
    This'll be the day TSO dies


    Helter Skelter in the payout swelter
    The simoleans flew off with a fallout shelter
    Eight miles high and falling fast
    And landed foul on the grass
    The simmies tried for more and fast
    With EA on the sidelines in agast
    Now the halftime air was sweet perfume
    While EA played the cancel tune
    We all got mad as hell
    That we could lose our money swell
    The simmies tried to take the field
    But EA said no and refused to yield
    Do you recall what was revealed
    The day TSO died
    We started singing



    Bye, bye The Sims Online
    Sold my rares for 10 billion and said good-bye
    Them good ole bots were bleeding EA dry
    Singing this'll be the day TSO dies
    This'll be the day TSO dies



    Oh, and there we were all in one place
    All little simmies lost in space
    With no time left to till the end
    So Luc be nimble, Luc be quick
    EA sat on a candlestick
    'cause fire is the devil's only friend
    And as we learned of EA-Land
    We all questioned the evil hand
    No angel born in hell
    Could break that EA spell
    And the flames climbed high into the night
    To light the sacrificial rite
    We saw how Luc tried to fight
    The day TSO died
    We were singing


    Bye, bye The Sims Online
    Sold my rares for 10 billion and said good-bye
    Them good ole bots were bleeding EA dry
    Singing this'll be the day TSO dies
    This'll be the day TSO dies


    I met a few who sang the blues
    And we asked for some happy news
    But EA just had their way
    I went back to hit the stores
    Where I'd been years before
    But everyone there had gone away
    And all that was left was a dream
    Of all of what could have been
    Not a word was spoken
    All our dreams were broken
    And the simmies that left hastily
    I hoped would come back with amnesty
    And would join us ever lastly
    The day TSO died
    And we were singing


    Bye, bye The Sims Online
    Sold my rares for 10 billion and said good-bye
    Them good ole bots were bleeding EA dry
    Singing this'll be the day TSO dies
    This'll be the day TSO dies [​IMG]

    Im speechless...very well done. Never will say goodbye though. You can take the sim out of TSO but you can NEVER take TSO outta the Sim. All is as it should be.

    I'll never say goodbye to TSO. Those of us founders will always be sims, and never avatars. This will always be TSO to me - change the name of the game, money or whatever you want - but this will always be TSO where I met many, many good friends in September of 2002, that I *still* talk to today.

    TY TY

    I don't like to say good-bye either but....

    The more changes I see coming the less and less it's going to look like the old game I loved. I still like the name Sims and the money called Simoleans, and I will still call them that.

    Here Here! Will always be the game I dragged my best friend into kicking &amp; screaming and her getting just as addicted as I am. Where I met some of the best people in the "WORLD" not just in the USA. The Money will always be Simonleans. Here's to Tipsy, Sheerluck, Morticia ,Gomex, Pugsley, Wednesday, Bob Dobalina and all the Dobalinas, Shasta's, to those ugly green pj's &amp; staring at the little fish tank to get 'fun'. to Code at 600ยง per greening. *sigh* you can take the Sim out of TSO, but you can't take the TSO outta the sim. *Digs up old TSO pics n makes a memorie page.*
