The Ballad of the Bitcoin Miner (v0.1-alpha)

(To the tune of "Rawhide" by Frankie Laine, though preferably performed a bit more like the Dead Kennedys' cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuEnSaZC_kA)

I hereby dedicate these lyrics to the public domain under the terms of the Unlicense (http://www.unlicense.org/)


Hashin', hashin', hashin',
Hashin', hashin', hashin',
Hashin', hashin', hashin',
Hashin', hashin', hashin',
Bitcoin!
Hah! Hah!

Keep hashin', hashin', hashin',
Oh my box is thrashin',
Keep them miners hashin', Bitcoin.
Fifteen machines in tandem,
But it's so bloody random,
An' I got this achin' in my groin.
All the things I'm missin',
Good vittles, love, and kissin',
Will be waitin' for me in Des Moines

Ain't no fool, gigajoule,
Power tool, keep 'em cool.
Ain't no fool, gigajoule:
Bitcoin.
Mine 'em out, cash 'em in,
Join a pool, keep 'em cool,
Mine 'em out, cash 'em in:
Bitcoin!
Hah! Hah!

Hashin', hashin', hashin',
Though the market's crashin',
Keep them miners hashin', Bitcoin.
Just let me solve the next block,
And I'll go back to Bangkok.
I've had my fill of Des Moines.
Em dee-five's calculatin',
My true love will be waitin':
Waitin' for me with sirloin.

Ain't no fool, gigajoule,
Power tool, keep 'em cool.
Ain't no fool, gigajoule:
Bitcoin.
Mine 'em out, cash 'em in,
Join a pool, keep 'em cool,
Mine 'em out, cash 'em in:
Bitcoin!

(Hashin', hashin', hashin',)
(Hashin', hashin', hashin',)
Hah!
(Hashin', hashin', hashin',)
Hah!
(Hashin', hashin', hashin',)
Bitcoin.
Hah!
Bitcoin!

now all you need is a poll:

1.)  i know this song from the TV series.
2.)  i know this song from "The Blues Brothers" movie.
3.)  i know this song from the Dead Kennedys.

nice to see a proper trailing apostrophe, BTW...

Hmm. I was thinking about this on the bus earlier.

Emmm-DEE-five's cal-CU-late-in' (7 syllables, stress on 2/5)
Shaaa-TWO-five-six a-CRANK-in' (7 syllables, but stress on 2/6)
Gee-PEE-yoos cal-CU-late-in' (7 syllables, stress 2/5, but awkward)


Sing along now, y'all...
