Yet another filk, prompted by this weekend's visit to a geek fair with Ailbhe and Adrian (who would like it known that he is NOT responsible for this farrago). And by the spate of "misheard lyrics" threads on afp recently. I've had a pig of a day, all things considered, so I hope you like this. 'Cos if you don't I'll pluck out your tridlins with a blunt and rusty instrument, probably a saxophone. If you don't get the tune by the 2nd verse, you're very^W^W I'm very surprised.

"Motherboard Running"

I want my
I want my
I want my Pentium III
Now look at that hardware, that's the way you do it
You fix the sound chip on the Pentium III -
[fade and cut to irritating "Intel Inside" music]
[resume]
That ain't workin' - that's the way you do it
Get yo' motherboard runnin' on your new PC -
That ain't workin' - take your spanner to it
Lemme tell ya, there's dust in there...
Maybe find the reason for that hard drive failure
Maybe blow the sucker with some compressed air...
We gotta install new version software,
Buggy Windows deliveries...
We gotta move these tower cases,
We gotta move these faulty PCs...
See that beardy loser with the mobile and the Psion -
Yeah buddy, that's _greasy_ hair -
That little geek's an administrator -
That little geek he is a millionaire!
We gotta install new version software,
Buggy Windows deliveries...
We gotta move these tower cases,
We gotta move these faulty PCs...
I shoulda learned to program in C
I shoulda learned all about Red Hat -
Look at those programs, stickin' in the bubble RAM -
Man, I need to know about that!
And who's up there? What's that? Those whirrin' noises -
The fan is going haywire like it's World War Three -
That ain't workin - that's the way you do it
Get yo' motherboard runnin' on your new PC.
We gotta install new version software,
Buggy Windows deliveries...
We gotta move these tower cases,
We gotta move these faulty PCs...
Now look at that hardware, that's the way you do it
You fix the sound chip on the Pentium III -
That ain't workin' - that's the way you do it
Get yo' motherboard runnin' on your new PC -
Motherboard runnin' on your new PC...
