Hacker-boy, Hacker-boy

Hacker-boy, Hacker-boy
(To the tune of Pussycat, Pussycat, Where Have You Been?)

Hacker-boy, hacker-boy, where have you been?
I sat in my bedroom and stared at a screen.
Hacker-boy, hacker-boy, what did you see?
I built a new virus upon my PC.

Hacker-boy, hacker-boy, where is it now?
It is shutting the lights off in Rome and Macao
Hacker-boy, hacker-boy, what did you do?
I proved that I’m better than anyone knew.

Hacker-boy, hacker-boy, why do you smile?
My virus has wormed through a Pentagon file.
Hacker-boy, hacker-boy, why are you sad?
They’ve put me in prison for being so bad.
