The Free Software song

Having just watched Revolution OS for the umpteenth time, and finding that the words are freely distributable, for your reading pleasure here are the lyrics to RMS‘s Free Software Song:

[To the melody of Sadi Moma:]

Join us now and share the software;
You’ll be free, hackers, you’ll be free.
x2

Hoarders may get piles of money,
That is true, hackers, that is true.
But they cannot help their neighbors;
That’s not good, hackers, that’s not good.

When we have enough free software
At our call, hackers, at our call,
We’ll throw out those dirty licenses
Ever more, hackers, ever more.

Join us now and share the software;
You’ll be free, hackers, you’ll be free.
x2

You’ll find this on the Free Software Foundation’s site along with some recordings, including the obligatory death metal version.

Nudging Craig to do a recording of this.
