The Lyrics

A RAID is usually a "redundant array of independent (/inexpensive) disks", but you don't make them from random access memory. Except like this:
They rode along the High Street on their fire-breathing goats
Asked the way to Dixons, but were told Dixons had closed
They thundered out of town, their mounts with scary horns a-curled
Seekin' out the retail parks, riding for PC World

They wore their balaclavas back to front with holes to see
None of them were carrying any forms of ID
And as the caprine crew rode past, men gasped out their surpise
It isn't every day you see goat riders in disguise

Yippie i ohhh ohh ohh
Yippie i aye ye ye
Goat riders in disguise

They found the shop they sought, one of the PC World chain
They rampaged through the window glass, to screams of crashing pane
They plundered all the aisles, in their wake was left debris
They stole every stick of random access memory

The punchline is approaching, and I hope the main surprise is
They made a redundant array of independent devices
Hands up if the joke is one that you'd anticipated:
These ram-raiders had made a RAID of the RAM they'd raided

Yippie i ohhh oh oh
Yippie i aye ye ye
Goat riders in disguise
Goat riders in disguise
Goat riders in disguise
Sorry.. but how could I resist getting *that* many puns into sixteen lines?

If the goats were ghosts, would that make them virtual RAM? Enjoyed this!

Don't know the computer references, but it's fun to contemplate vandals in balaclavas riding goats. That picture will stay in my old-fashioned memory for a time.
