The Wonderful Hacker

(to The Wonderful Toy)
by Albert Corda, Richard Holmes & David Kinder

When I was a wee undergrad,
My roommate gave to me
A user name and a password, too:
I first bombed disk,
And then dumped core,
And then slaved the cty.
And then I stole "acct.sys"
And watched the system die.

Oh, it went

-- crunch --

When it moved, and

-- boots --

When it stopped, and

--         --

When it stood still.

They never knew just who it was
And I guess they never will.
