A Filk inspired by that *lovely* #afp'er George...

Sung to the tune (sic) of Wannabe, by the Spice Girls

I'll tell to what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what you want, what you really really want
I'll tell to what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what you want, what you really really want
I wanna (huh),I wanna (huh), I wanna (huh),I wanna (huh),
I wanna really really really wanna be a true geek.

Oh I want a Psion, I wanna Psion 5
I been waiting so long now, when will it arrive?
I went and wasted, my precious dosh..
but at least when I get it I will look real posh...

I'll tell to what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what you want, what you really really want
I'll tell to what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what you want, what you really really want
I wanna (huh),I wanna (huh), I wanna (huh),I wanna (huh),
I wanna really really really wanna be a true geek.

If you wanna be a geekling,
you gotta get with some clue,
George has nearly made it
She's more geek than you
If you wanna be a geekling
you have got to be
just a little wierd
as you'll end up like me.

So here's the story from a to z
about some of the geeky stuff you'll see
You got linux on the disk, there's nothing like a risk
You got java and script who likes it? *ick* and
Billy G who doesn't come for free
and is real flaky
as as for C, hah you'll see

knock your luser down and kick it all around.
knock your luser down and kick it all around.

If you wanna be a geekling
You gotta be really tough
And *lart* those stupid Lusers
who spam or troll or stuff
If you wanna be a geekling,
you tend to find that it
tends to lead to BOFHdom
and then you're in the...

(Come to think about that)
You should know how to code
so you can handle your job
In any Mode
no don't be hasty
give it a try
If it's really buggy then you say bye bye

I'll tell to what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what you want, what you really really want
I'll tell to what I want, what I really really want
So tell me what you want, what you really really want
I wanna (huh),I wanna (huh), I wanna (huh),I wanna (huh),
I wanna really really really wanna be a true geek.

If you wanna be a geekling,
you really need a head check
It's a evil lifestyle
When you are a tech
And when you've finally made a geekling
you will end up mad
driven up the wall by
lusers that you've had...

that's all
