Born to Be Wired: 
The OnLine Anthem
(S. Cobb, 1995, apologies to Bonfire, J. Kay & Steppenwolf, 1965) 

Get your modem running
Head out on the I-way
Looking for a web page
And whatever comms our way 

Yeah darling gonna make it happen
Take the cyber-world in a love embrace
Fire all of our ports at once
And log into cyberspace 

I want fibre optic
Or an ISDN uplink
Wrestle with the line noise
And this feeling that I'm in-sync 

Yeah darling gonna make it happen
Take the cyber-world in a love embrace
Fire all of our ports at once
And log into cyberspace 

Like a true, true Turing's child
We were born, born to be wired 

We can link so deep
I never want to sleep 

Chorus:
Born to be be wired
Born to be be wired

 

Born To Be Acquired:
The Startup Anthem
(S. Cobb, 1998, apologies to Bonfire, J. Kay & Steppenwolf, 1965)

Get your beta running
Headed for the M&A
Looking for some venture
Or whatever funds come our way

Yeah darling gonna make it happen
Take the VC-world in a love embrace
Fire all our paradigms at once
And exploit the marketplace

I want founders' stock blocks
Or heavy leveraged options
Wrestle with the offer price
And this feeling that I'm cashing in

Yeah darling gonna make it happen
Take the VC-world in a love embrace
Fire all our paradigms at once
And exploit the marketplace

Like a true, true nineties' child
We were born, born to be acquired

We can retire so young
I never want to age

Chorus
Born to be acquired
Born to be acquired
