To the tune of "Cat's in the Cradle", by Harry Chapin

Server's in the cradle 

My PC arrived just the other day, 
it came to the house in the usual way.
And there were errors to catch and ISP's to pay.
It was crashin' before I knew, 
It'd say "I'm gonna GPF on you, Man.
You know I'll GPF on you.

And the cat's on the keyboard in the server room,
Windows just went Blue and the network went boom. 
When'll it boot, I don't know when.
But we'll have BX again, man. You know we'll have BX again.

A consultant came by just the other day.
He said, "Where would you like to go today.
Can you give me some dough?" I said, "Not today,
This box just went the Linux way."
And as he Walked away, he said
"I'll be back for you, yeah. 
You know I'll be back for you"

And the cat's on the keyboard in the server room,
Windows just went Blue and the network went boom. 
When'll it boot, I don't know when.
But we'll have BX again, man. You know we'll have BX again.

Our router melted down just the other day, 
It took down the LAN in the usual way,
What can I do? Just sit for a while?
Boss shook head and said with a smile
"What I'd really like, man, are some CD Keys.
Take a break, Can I have them Please?"

And the cat's on the keyboard in the server room,
Windows just went Blue and the network went boom. 
When'll it boot, I don't know when.
But we'll have BX again, man. You know we'll have BX again

I've long since resigned and my friend moved away,
I AIM'd him up just the other day.
I said, "I'd like to chat, if you don't mind."
She said, "I'd love to man, if I can find the time.
You see, the new Net's a hassle, and my PC's got the Flu,
But it's sure nice AIMimg to you man.
It's sure nice AIMing to you."
As I closed the window it occured to me,
It's time to get a new PC.
I need a new PC.

And the cat's on the keyboard in the server room,
Windows just went Blue and the network went boom. 
When'll it boot, I don't know when.
But we'll have BX again, man. You know we'll have BX again
