Your browser rises on the screen
With Trojans, viruses, and... sleaze!
The porno-popups grab your eyes
All from the hacker who is... me!

While sleeping hours take you far
From surfing there and surfing... here!
I'll sprout new problems like a rat
My code will be a hell you'll... fear!

My reasons may seem lame
But there's no-one I can't flame!
And there's nowhere you can go
To escape my ruthless code... so you're history!

The sound,
You will hear when you log on:
Youuurrrr maaa-chine,
Must now host Java beans!
Youuurrrr maaa-chine's,
A thrall I'll never free!
Ahhhh-ahhhh-HAAAA !!

It's such a rainy afternoon
No point in going anywhere
I'll pound my keyboard in the gloom
And whip up something I will... share!

It's such a rainy afternoon
You'll sit and gaze upon your... Windows!
Your screen turns blue before your face
The screaming deep inside you... grows!

I'm seeking hacker fame
So there's no-one I won't flame!
And so you'll be out of luck
When you cry out WTF... at your empty screen!

The sound,
You will hear when you log on:
Youuurrrr maaa-chine,
Is now a slave to me!
Youuurrrr maaa-chine's,
Where viruses now breed!
The sound,
You will hear when you log on:
Youuurrrr maaa-chine,
Must now host Java beans!
Youuurrrr maaa-chine's,
A thrall I'll never free!
Ahhhh-ahhhh-HAAAA !!

Definition of a hacker: http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/H/hacker.html Definition of a *cracker*: http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/C/cracker.html - this is what you're going for.

Thanks neminem - I claim poetic license, since "hacker" is by far a more widely-known term in the non-geek community (speaking as a geek myself).

Calling all Moody Blues fans...... "I Know You're Out There Somewhere" ........ ( Adagio this means YOU heh heh heh )
Adagio - January 23, 2004 - Report this comment
Ok...trusting you, Johnny. (Did I say that?) I know that you really pace well, and you must know the PC stuff, even though I don't (too much), so...5's

Thanks, Adagio! That free audio sample at the top of this parody-page is a good-quality portion of the original tune "The Actor", too.

.....now.....I know Mari Aranoff Duncan knows some Moody Blues material.....oh Mari D, where are ye.....?
neminem - January 23, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah, that's fine. Just wanted to make sure you knew... calling a song "The Cracker" would attract entirely the wrong crowd, anyway ;-).

Thanks neminem. ;-)

Good job, Johnny!

Thank you, Jack.

Okay, I admit it. I can't recall that song, and that made it hard to comment on it. Other than that, I like the words. They do have a Moody Blues feel to them.
Johnny D - January 25, 2004 - Report this comment
That's OK, Mari D, thanks for stopping by. I bet you know "Visions Of Paradise".
Mari D - March 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Oh jeez! Of course! Now I realize that I DO know this song AND "Visions of Paradise" (nice flute part on it) and why I blocked them out at first. I lost my virginity to Side 2 of "In Search of the Lost Chord"! Oh yeah, I like your parody!

Gee, I lost mine to Peter Frampton's "I'm In You"
Mari D - March 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Johnny, would you believe that I don't remember? Yeah, great album! Hey, it was my first time, my then-boyfriend had the turntable on "replay," I was nervous, it took a while to chill out... but I do remember thinking "Gee, there's 'Voices in the Sky' again!"

Thanks Mari - that's a neat story!
