"I Just Hate Typing with Vi"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Again some techno humour
Hear that lonesome admin in distress,
I think that I could die -
That crontab file is messed again -
I just hate typing with vi

I've never had a job so drag
with editor like vi -
That damn program is from Stone Age
I really want to cry

Did you ever hit the Escape key,
When you edit mode did try?
That means you screwed up file again
I just hate typing with vi

The Windows guys have their share of luck
The Notepad is quite spry;
I want to install emacs now -
I just hate typing with vi.

In 1985, there was a UNIX User Group debate, the title of which was "vi is a piece of wombat do". It's good to know that some things never change.
