Not the tune I expected

Shawn Powers's picture

Based on your lyrics, I was expecting Tom Petty's Free Fallin to be the tune...

She's a good coder, livin down in Houston,
Loves Open Source, and the FSF too.
She's a good coder, crazy 'bout Stallman,
Loves Linux, and BSD too.

It's a long day, scriptin' for Windoze,
There's an buffer, overflowin the code.
He's a bad tech, cause he don't even help her,
He's a bad tech, for closin his source.

But we're freeeee, free hackers
Yeah we're freeeee, free hackin'

...sadly, I could probably go on.
