The Lyrics

With apologies to Paul Henning.
Come 'n' listen to my story 'bout a man named Greg,
A savvy guy from Sterling who is rather long of leg.
One fine day, he was tweakin' Steph's PC
When he found he had a knack for figurin' out "T."
I - T, that is. Fixin' viruses, troubleshootin'.

Well, the first thing you know, ol' Greg's a techno-geek.
Folks out west said, "Help! This code is Greek!"
Said, "Pacific coast is the place y'oughta be."
So Greg packed his motherboard and he headed out to sea.
Se - attle, that is. Lotsa rain, Double lattes.

Greg and Steph got to Seattle, and they bought a New Age loft.
Their next-door neighbor was the head of Microsoft.
The writers back in Sterling sure missed having them around
'Cause then the meetin's somehow didn't seem so profound.
Deep thoughts, that is. High-brow notions, intellectual stuff.

It's time for salutations on Greg's birthday.
I'm sure he 'preciates y'all comin' by for his soiree.
You're all invited back next year to this locality
To have a heapin' helpin' of Greg's philosophy.
Metaphysics, that is. Set a spell, discuss the cosmos.
Y'all cogitate, y'hear?
