Happiness is a bash prompt

Happiness is a bash prompt — Based on the Beatles' song “Happiness is a Warm Gun”

It's not a prompt that misses much
Do do do do do do- oh yea!
It's well acquainted with the touch that makes a good shell
Like a butler on the terminal

The process in the list that forks all the time
Spawns another, forks again
Writing to the disk I don't know what
Working overtime
A soap impression of a virus on a Unix box
The regex gets him every time

I need a fix 'cause I'm leaking RAM
Swapping out my bytes to the disk
I need a fix 'cause I'm leaking RAM
X server's using up my RAM
X server's using up my RAM
X server's using up my RAM
X server's using up my RAM

Happiness is a bash prompt
Happiness is a bash prompt, mama
When I ssh into your domain
And I feel my finger on the return key
I know nobody can do me no harm
Because happiness is a bash prompt, mama
Happiness is a bash prompt
-Yes it is.
Happiness is a prompt, yes it is…
Bash!
Well don't ya know that happiness is a bash prompt, mama?
