What Fleets Are Made Of

(Read to the tune of “What Dreams Are Made Of” from The Lizzie McGuire Movie)

Can you even believe what you just saw on that fleet?

Don’t you think it could have just been a tweet?

Then come pet photos and I go

Oh oh oh

Now I never want to switch back

Deep down inside I’m facing the real facts

Hey now

Hey now

This is what fleets are made of

Hey now

Hey now

This is what fleets are made of

I’ve got a dual timeline

I’ve got nothing but “quarantime”

This is what fleets are made of

Do you ever wonder how Instagram works?

You could try forever and never understand all the perks 

Now you never have to learn though

No no no

Everything you need is right here

Just trust Twitter and never fear

The fleet panel will never disappear

Hey now

Hey now

This is what fleets are made of

Hey now

Hey now

This is what fleets are made of

I’ve got stories moving faster than I can read

I’ve got pictures of all my friends’ afternoon tea

This is what fleets are made of

Push the circle

This is what fleets are made of

Oh look! There’s a turtle! 

This what fleets are made of

Then I see a new Nintendo

And I go

Oh oh oh

Yesterday my life was bleaker

Now I’m a bonafide fleeter

Hey now

Hey now

This is what fleets are made of

Hey now

Hey now

This is what dreams are made of
