The Lyrics

Install Linux!
When Windows a blues
Hey, install Linux
When Windows a blues

Our sysadmin guy he never gets slowdown
though he's got the crappiest job around
Fed up with the Windows bugs
thinks that crappy OS sucks

When I asked him of the e-mail jam
how to get rid off those crashes and spam
he grinned and raised his little head
took his screwdriver up and, then he said

Install Linux!
When Windows' a blues
Hey, install Linux!
When Windows' a blues
It won't cost a dime, it's all freeware
it's stable as a rock, needs minimum care
Install Linux!
When Windows' a blues

Well, I thought to listen to the sysadmin there
I asked if I need new some hardware
He laughed and said "By no means, ma'rm
I will just in any old crate run"

I asked "How about the all software,
Is there something like IE there?"
He smiled and said "That's a virus trap,
Mozilla's far better than the MS crap -

Install Linux!
When Windows' a blues
Hey, c'mon, install Linux!
When Windows' a blues
With desktop as Gnome or KDE
you can let that Redmond junk stuff be -
Install Linux!
When Windows' a blues!"
