The Lyrics

Gigaflop - A measure of computing speed equal to one billion floating-point operations per second. Giga meaning billion. This is simular to a giga-byte which stands for one billion bytes. How big is this? If you had a hard drive with one gigabyte free space available and you were running a word processor, typing one key per second with no interruptions would take approximately 30 years to fill it up.
What's a gigaflop? It makes PCs go giddy up.
It makes them run real dandy, modus operandi.
Wha, whoa oh boy gigaflop,
I cannot perceive thee.
How did they conceive thee?
Man those 'lectrons flow.
They make ya, they make ya, they make ya go,
Know you're not goin' slow,
They speed ya, they speed ya, they speed ya so,
Make some screamin' video.
Oh boy, gigaflop,
You make PCs go giddy up.
Computer speeds go higher, and CPUs catch fire.
Oh boy, gigaflop, oh boy, gigaflop.

I wonder how long we'll be in Terra-whatever before the silicon-based stuff just plateaus. Good parody.
