By St. Nicholas Petreley
To the tune of Sleigh Ride

Don’t hear that cash drawer jingling,
Ring ting tingling tee
Come on, it’s time we better
Put a network together that’s free.
Outside our stock is falling
And friends are calling ‘boo hoo,’
Come on, it’s time we’d better
Put some software together that’s GNU.

Hurry up, hurry up, hurry up, let’s go
Our money can grow,
When Linux puts a lid on TCO.
Set it up, set it up, set it up, it’s grand
We’re now in command,
We’re gliding along with the source
And we finally took our stand.

Our checkbook’s nice and rosy
And comfy cozy are we
We finally got it together
With a network that’s better and free.

We took that road before us
And sang a chorus of GNU,
‘Cause Billy’s “Road Ahead-us”
Made us far into “Debt-us” and blue.

Don’t hear that cash drawer jingling,
Ring ting tingling tee
Come on, it’s time we’d better
Put a network together that’s free.

Outside our stock is falling
And friends are calling ‘boo hoo,’
Come on, it’s time we better
Put some software together that’s GNU.

We’re so much better now that we’re all together with GNU!
