Moving from green IT to green beret IT

I came across this link and realised that it might not be easy for these guys everyday. So i decided to adapt the famous song :The Ballad Of The Green Berets by Staff Sergeant Barry Sadler


Fighting admin from the sky
Fearless men who code and die
Men who email just what they say
The brave men of the GreenIT Beret

Green wings upon their chest
These are men, ICT's best
One hundred men will patch today
But only three win the GreenIT Beret

Trained to live off datacenter's land
Trained in ups, broadband
Men who code by night and day
Uptime peak from the GreenIT Berets

Green wings upon their chest
These are men, ICT's best
One hundred men will patch today
But only three win the GreenIT Beret

Back at home a young wife waits
Her GreenIT Beret has met his fate
His servers died from being slashdotted
Leaving her his last request
Put green wings on my son's chest
Make him one of ICT's best
He'll be a admin they'll test one day
Have him win the GreenIT Beret.

Green wings upon their chest
These are men, ICT's best
One hundred men will patch today
But only three win the GreenIT Beret
