Dere's an ol' site called de Cafe Utne Dat's de ol' site where I long to be! What do I care if de world's got troubles? What do I care if de Web ain't free?

Ol' man Utne, Dat ol' man Utne He mus' know sumpin' But don't say nuthin', He jes' keeps rollin' He keeps on strollin' along.

He don' plant cool beans, He don't plant flames, An' dem dat plants 'em Is soon ashamed, But ol' man Utne, He jes keeps rollin' along.

You an' me, we sweat an' strain, Brain all achin' an' racked wid pain, Post dat note! Write dat mail! Git a little funky An' the place gets frail.

Ah gits weary Mah eyes gits bleary Ah'm tired of postin An' skeered of roastin, But ol' man Utne, He jes'keeps rolling' along.

Lotta folks work on dere postings, Lotta folks work while de other folks play, Writin' dose posts from de dawn to sunset, Gittin' no rest till de judgment day.

Don't look up An' don't look down, You don' dast make De mushroom boss frown. Bend your fingers An' bow your head, An' post dat note Despite your dread.

Let me go 'way from de blather Let me go 'way from de mushroom boss; Show me dat water called Jordan, Dat's de ol' water dat I long to toss.

Ol' Greek Chorus, Dat ol' Greek Chorus, It mus' know sumpin' But don't say nuthin' It jes' keeps singin It keeps on singin' along.

Long ol' topic forever keeps rollin' on...

He don' plant cool beans, He don' plant nuttin, An' dem dat spams 'em Is soon forgotten, But ol' man Blather, He jes' keeps rollin' along.

Long ol' Kai keeps hearing dat tale. You an' me, we sweat an' strain, Brain all achin an' racked wid pain. Post dat note! Answer dat mail! Git a little punk An' your wit goes stale.

Ah, gits weary Mah eyes gits bleary Ah'm tired of hostin An' skeered of roastin, But ol' man Moulton, He jes' keeps postin along!

The Eye of Horus, The Silent Chorus, He don' plant comments, He don' spread toxins, But dem dat mocks 'em Will not out fox 'em Cuz Ol' Chief Martin, He jes' keeps fartin' along.

Kai gits weary His eyes gits bleary He's tired of hostin An' skeered of roastin, But ol' Greek Chorus, That rolling torus, He jes' keeps coastin' along!
