"The Ballad of the Computer Hillbillies"
(Sung to the tune of the TV show,
"The Beverly Hillbillies")

Come and listen to a story
'bout a man named Jed,
A poor college kid,
barely kept his family fed,
But then 1 day he was talking
to a recruiter,
who said, "They pay big bucks
if ya work on a computer..."

UNIX, that is.

CRTs. Workstations.

Well, the 1st thing ya know

ole Jed's an Engineer.
The kinfolk said "Jed,
move away from here".
They said "Arizona is
the place ya oughta be",
So he bought some donuts
and moved to Ahwatukee.

Intel, that is.

Dry heat. No amusement parks.

On his 1st day at work,

they stuck him in a cube.
Fed him more donuts and
sat him at a tube.
They said "your project's late,
but we know just what to do.
Instead of 40 hours,
we'll work you 52!"

OVERTIME that is.

Unpaid. Mandatory.

The weeks rolled by and

things were looking bad.
Schedules started slipping
and some managers were mad.
They called another meeting
and decided on a fix.
The answer was quite simple,
"We'll work him 66!"

HOURS, that is.

Stressed out. No social life.

Months turned to years and his

hair was turning grey.
Jed worked very hard while
his life slipped away.
Waiting to retire when he turned 64,
Instead he got a call
and escorted out the door.

LAID OFF, that is.

De-briefed. Unemployed.

Now, THE MORAL OF THE STORY
is
listen to what you're told:
COMPANIES WILL USE YOU
AND DISCARD YOU
WHEN YOU'RE OLD.

So gather up your friends and
START YOUR OWN FIRM,

beat the competition,
WATCH THE BOSSES SQUIRM
when you become...

MILLIONAIRES, that is.

Like Bill Gates and Steve Case.

Y'all come back now,

ya hear?The Net perks U UP... like a "GOOD" cup of Java... yah! :-D
