Cisco Inferno

As promised. I can't remember who wrote the original, so i'm not going to bother to apologise to anyone.

Lost my files, One hundred magabytes
Stuff was coming loose, had to check it out as root
No tape streamin', out of control
It was doing in my head in, when the router tried to explodeI heard somebody say
Burn baby burn! - CISCO inferno!
Burn baby burn! - Find a work-around!
Burn baby burn! - CISCO inferno!
Burn baby burn! - Melt that cable down, now
Drastic action - need to run a disk compaction
Bandwidth not enough, and the routing self-destructs
The fans were gone, all the bleedin' lot
Melting plastic pong, and that is when my SPARC got hotWish i was home today
Burn baby burn! - CISCO inferno!
Burn baby burn! - that crackling sound!
Burn baby burn! - CISCO inferno!
Burn baby burn! - Bring the servers down!
Up above my head I feel water in the air
Some bastard has, set the sprinlers off somewhere
Not enough to burn it, now it's gonna all short-circuit
My decision's made - i called the Fire BrigadeThe heat was on, rising to the top
Made it out to the stairsListing to the paint-blisters pop
I better run away

Burn baby burn! - Disco inferno! (Aah yeah!)
Burn baby burn! - Burn that mama down
Burn baby burn! - Disco inferno, yeah!
Burn baby burn! - Burn that mama down

It just won't stop
It's gone to pot
Just can't stop
All the systems are shot
