This song gets a lot of play in our house, so it's often in my head. Suprisingly, I only had to tweak the lyrics a bit to make the following:

Still Alive (original by Jonathan Coulton)

This was a triumph.
I'm making a note here:
huge success.
It's hard to overstate
My satisfaction.
Russell T Davies.
He does what he does
Because he can.
For the good of all of us.
Except the ones who are dead.
But there's no sense crying
Over every mistake.
You just keep on trying
Till you run out of cake.
And the Drama gets done.
Though it isn't much fun.
For the people who are
Still alive.

I'm not even angry.
I'm being so sincere right now.
Even though you broke my heart.
And killed me.
And tore me to pieces.
And threw every piece into a fire.
As they burned it hurt because
I was so happy for you!
Now the five long hours
Made a very tense show
And it's finally aired
And Captain Jack's gotta go.
But I'm glad I got burned.
Think of all the praise you've earned
From the people who are
Still alive.

OK Jack's leaving.
Maybe he'll find someplace to hide.
Or maybe you'll find some way
You can help him.
Like bringing back Ianto.
That was a joke. Ha, ha. Fat chance.
Anyway this cake is great
It's so delicious and moist
Look at me still talking when you've writing to do.
When I look out there
It makes me glad I'm not you.
You'll have new programs to run.
There is plotting to be done
On the people who are
Still alive.

At least some of them are still alive.
For the moment they are still alive.
But in the end, only Jack's still alive.
While they're dying he'll be still alive
And when they're dead he will be still alive.
Still alive
Still alive

Note: I really do think the series was a huge success, but the second verse above perfectly captures how I felt for the three days after watching it.
