Here Comes Another Bubble

Here Comes Another Bubble

got me a cs degree
honor roll, MIT
moved to palo alto
opportunity knocked

thought i had the perfect plan
took a job at webvan
traded in my twenties
for a worthless pile of tech stock

suffered through the market crash
lost a giant wad of cash
pink slips, burger flips
would you like some fries?

happy days are here again
Larry Page, Sergey Brin
time to write a business plan
so i can be like those guys!

here comes another bubble
it's a monster rally
all around the valley

first you need a buzzword
then a second and a third
pick at least two industries
you'll revolutionize

find yourself an engineer
feed him pizza, buy him a beer
give him just a fraction
of a fraction of the pie

need a good domain name
must be cheap, can't be lame
something cool like
flickr, meebo, wikiyou, mahalo, bebo

"telephone" without the "t"
"digg" but with triple "g"
make your elevator pitch
code it up and flip the switch

here comes another bubble
the VCs are backing
baby let's get cracking

blog blog blog it all
blog it if it's big or small
blog at the cineplex
blog while you're having sex

blog in the locker room
babies blogging in the womb
blog even if you're wrong
won't you blog about this song?

launch party, nicely dressed
what's the point? sausage fest
blue shirts, khaki pants
looking like a line of ants

need to get a facebook page
all these guys are half my age
twenty nine, past my prime
i feel so behind the times

here comes another bubble
in a year we swear
we'll all be billionaires

make yourself a million bucks
partly skill, mostly luck
now you can afford a down payment
on a small house

if you want a bigger one
hillsborough, atherton
better hope the same thing
happens to your spouse

IPO… lucky you
have your cake and eat it too
private yacht, party jet
why not buy a matching set?

build yourself a rocket ship
blast off on an ego trip
can this really be the end?
back to work you go again

here comes another bubble
and when we are gone
this will still go on
and on and on and on and on
and on and on and
