Little Boxes

With apologies to Pete Seeger
Little boxes, little boxes
on the desktops in the cubicles
they're all made out of ticky-tacky
and they all crash just the same.

There's 95 and 98
NT and 2000
and they're all made out of ticky-tacky
and they all crash just the same.

The people at the boxes
are tearing their hair out
using all sorts of naughty words
but they still crash just the same.

There's Doctors and Lawyers
and Business Executives
with degrees from fancy colleges
but their boxes crash the same.

They get on the phone to tech support
they vent their frustrations
waste a lot of time flaming
while the boxes crash all the same.
