Kill Troll with Sword

Well we’re working here at Infocom

And they’re shutting the DEC 20’s down

Out in Menlo Park they write a report

Fill out a form, see you in court.

Well our founders didn’t see it at all.

Had an office down at Faneuil Hall.

Thought they’d get rich selling Cornerstone,

Ed Reuteman, Tommy Smaldone.

And we’re living here at Infocom,

But our recent games were all a bomb.

And it’s getting very hard to pay.

And we’re waiting here at Infocom,

For the public offering we never found.

For the promises Al Vezza made,

If we worked hard, if we behaved.

So the Golden Floppies hang on the wall,

But they never really helped us at all.

No they never taught us what was neat,

Graphics and sound, sizzling heat.

And we’re waiting here at Infocom,

For the latest Apple download from Tom,

And they’re all supposed to ship today.

Every tester had a pretty good shot,

To become an Imp and earn a lot,

But that was all before those Mountain View crooks,

Started writing off good will on our books.

Well I’m living here at Infocom,

Even the rotisserie standings are glum,

So I won’t be logging in today,

And it’s getting very hard to pay,

And we’re living here at Infocom.
