    Ok… oh, that's very nice of you.  Thank you, wow, this is vegas.  I got three microphones!  I feel like Kenny Loggins. 


    Hi, my name is wes, I'm from way up in Canada, and I run a website called deadtroll dot com, so check it out if you feel like it.  This Is a song I wrote about some very special people who make sure your computer works.  They're called "System Administrators", and they're very important.


    (playing guitar)


    There’s a guy who works in another room, or on another floor,

    He’s the one you call, when your document ain’t there no more

    he’s probably a boy, but he might be a girl, or something in between

    he’s the only one in the office who knows what “PC Load Letter” means


    He’s your system administrator

    he’s probably into comic books

    and you tremble in fear when you have to hear

    one of his “what a dummy” looks


    got a virus, lost your password, or you just can’t print

    in an hour he’ll show up and then he’ll crouch and squint,

    he’ll fight to save your files, he might be there all day

    but sometimes he just presses “caps lock” and then walks away

    but hey!  Suddenly my password works!  Hoooray! 


    Hooray hooray,

    happy sys admin day

    I’m gonna buy my guy a gift to say

     “Having you around means I get to stay…

    stupid, and uninformed…


    and I can keep opening dot e x e email attachments

    and forgetting my mother’s maiden name

    and I can keep naming files with spaces and ampersands and colons

    cause you’ll fix it all for me!



    I’ll give you a cake

    I’ll give you a hug

    I’ll buy the “world’s best system administrator” mug

    just help me out,

    system administrator

    delete my “recently viewed websites” file

    System administrator

    restore my network settings so I can find my F: drive

    system administrator

    Uh… plug in my mouse
