The Lyrics

Do you have the time to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything all at once
I'm one of those sysadmin type dudes
All harried, overworked, and underpaid

Sometimes users give me the creeps
Sometimes crackers play tricks on me
My mail keeps adding up, my inbox will blow up
How'd I get myself into this mess

I just need caffeine to energize my brain
'Cause lack of sleep is really bringing me down
Kernel mods galore, all of them dumping core
And I can't let them keep my servers down

Sometimes my scripts play tricks on me
'Cause I can't choose 'tween PERL and C
My disk is filling up, I'm about to throw up
Can I have another disk on loan

Grasping for control
So you'd better log off
