Infestival

It seems the internet has forgotten the lyrics to this song, so I am putting it back into our collective memory. (I really like it, and use it as my "you have a message" tune on my Android. The SGI Octane was a line of kickass workstations running IRIX - SGI's marketing division decided to enter the realm of musical composition (not for the first time))

SGI's Octane Swing

Chorus:
Octane, we're gonna rock-tane
This thing called Octane, it swings with performance
Octane, competition's in shock-tane
This thing called Octane, it swings with performance

You don't need a hero, you don't need any myth
What you need is some action, so get a load of this
You don't want to be mediocre, not just run-of-the-mill
Some computer hacking joker, baby grab that thrill
(chorus)


Takin' a vacation, oh no I don't think so
You gotta make it happen, you gotta make that dough
So take it to the limit, fill'er up and get strapped in
Put the petal to the metal and ignite the power within

Octane, we're gonna rock-tane
This thing called Octane, it swings with performance
Octaaaane, Danke Sheyn
Octane, it swings with performance
Ignite me!

Octane, we're gonna rock-tane
This thing called Octane, it swings with performance
Octane, knock you off your block-tane
Oh Octane it swings, Octane it swings, Octane it swings with performance
