The Lyrics

They just came out with Windows XP
But you can give it to the birds and bees
I want Linux (That's what I want)
That's what I want (That's what I want)
That's what I wa-a-a-ant
That's what I want (That's what I want)

Linux really gives me such a thrill
'Cause it don't pay Bill Gates' bills
I want Linux (That's what I want)
That's what I want (That's what I want)
That's what I wa-a-a-ant
That's what I want (That's what I want)

(instrumental break)

Linux don't do everything, it's true
But what it can't do, I can't use
I want Linux (That's what I want)
That's what I want (That's what I want)
That's what I wa-a-a-ant
That's what I want (That's what I want)

Linux (That's what I want)
I want Linux (That's what I want)
Yeah, I want Linux (That's what I want)
Uh-huh (That's what I want)
Uh-huh-huh-huh-huh-huh
Oh, yeah (That's what I want)
Gimme Linux (That's what I want)
That good ol' Linux (That's what I want)
Red Hat or Mandrake (That's what I want)
Or even Debian (That's what I want)
Uh-huh-huh-huh-huh-huh
Oh, yeah (That's what I want)
Gimme Linux (That's what I want)
That good ol' Linux (That's what I want)...
