Cracking Computers
Once a password hacker sat by a terminal
Under the shade of a binary tree
And he sang as he sat and waited til' his code compiled
"You'll come a-cracking computers with me"

Chorus:
``Cracking computers, hacking computers
You'll come a-cracking computers with me''
And he sang as he sat and waited 'til his code compiled
``You'll come a-cracking computers with me''

Down came a user, to login to that terminal
Up sat the cracker, and watched him with glee
And he sang as he saved that password in a datafile
"You'll come a-cracking computers with me"

In came the sysop, watching on his monitor
In came a super-user or three
"Oh whose is that password, you've got in your datafile?
You've been a-cracking computers I see!"

Up jumped the cracker, turned off his terminal.
"You'll never catch me online" said he!
But his code can be heard as you login to that terminal
``Who'll come a-cracking computers with me?''
