FDP Forum / Tin Pan Alley - Songwriting / Ska song about... the Internet?

I haven't posted a song in a while, but have just written a couple. A major/minor Marley-esque progression, with the chorus repeated after each verse. Comments/suggestions?

I’m Up/The Internet’s Down

I am up (up up) ’cause the internet’s down (down down)
Baby I’m up (up up) ’cause the internet’s down (down down)

Radio said this morning, a disaster in the news,
The internet that’s our everything, seems to have blown a fuse.
Cruisin the world wide wonderful, like a dog without a leash,
I look up at the morning sky, like a bird who’s been released

Repeat chorus

Wi-fi, hi-def, you are gonna be my death,
Mobile data plan, stop redefining who I am.
Just ’cause you got a hammer don’t mean that I’m your nail.
You can be jack rabbit, I’m happy as a snail

Bridge (major key):
Passionate not rational,
Humans are illogical,
Physical not digital,
Half a glass is almost full.

Repeat chorus

Repeat v.2
