Parody Song Title:

"UNIX Man"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

He's a real UNIX man
admin of the UNIX LAN
making all his UNIX plans
for company

He has large screen to view
knows where e- mail goes to
he's the main support for you and me

UNIX man, please listen:
My password is missing
UNIX man - just give the "passwd" command

He knows vi and ps -e
uses awk and gcc
UNIX man, don't you use more at all?

UNIX man, don't worry
make just fine, don't hurry
UNIX man, the new kernel compiles just as you've planned

He has large screen to view
knows where e- mail goes to
he's the main support for you and me

UNIX man, please listen:
My password is missing
UNIX man - just give the "passwd" command

He's a real UNIX man
admin of the UNIX LAN
:,: making all the UNIX plans
for company :,:

This is what I'd love to see on a "Geek Gold" parody album--well-paced, accurate, still funny to people with a decent knowledge of the topic. Fives all round!

Pacing's a tad off, but this is quite funny--an overall 5 in the command line.
