'Till There Was GNU

A Song Performed By Steven R. Champagne

there were applications
but I never saw their source code
no I never saw it at all
'till there was gnu

there were profits so high
it was all proprietary
all behind a corporate wall
'till there was gnu

then there were downloads
and wonderful mail lists
that informed me
with sweet contributions
from all, it's true

there was code all around
but I never heard of sharing
no I never heard it at all
'till there was gnu

<instruments>

then there were downloads
and wonderful mail lists
that informed me
with sweet contributions
from all, it's true

there was code all around
but I never heard of sharing
no I never heard it at all
'till there was gnu

'till there was gnu
