    Laugh (or Cry) New Song: 'We've Just Reorganized ICANN'
    posted by michael on Wednesday April 02 2003, @09:56AM

    After a long dry spell, we bring you another wonderful ICANN song from our relentlessly anonymous source: We've Just Reorganized ICANN. Honest folks -- I do NOT know who is singing these.

    Here are the lyrics:

    There's a bright CEO in our future
    All our past rifts he surely can suture
    We've got a new boss, we're not gathering moss
    Any drop in attendance would be no great loss

    We've just reorganized ICANN
    We've kept the crazies at bay
    We've got a wonderful feeling
    Everything's going our way

    Though the ITU keeps calling meetings
    They'll spend all of their time on the seatings
    That group wants us gone, but we mean to go on
    And those governments can't ever shut down our con

    We've just reorganized ICANN
    We've kept the crazies at bay
    We've got a wonderful feeling
    Everything's going our way

    Does it matter that nobody trusts us?
    We can't think of a group that can bust us
    No more global elections, we'll make the selections
    Just don't try to ask us embarrassing questions!

    We've just reorganized ICANN
    We've kept the crazies at bay
    We've got a wonderful feeling
    Everything's going our way

    We've got governments asking to meet us
    Prime Ministers often will greet us
    Our fees are as high as the stars in the sky
    And we might just establish new names by and by

    We've just reorganized ICANN
    We'll have more staffers to pay
    We've got a wonderful feeling
    Everything's going our way

    There's a chance that the ccs will leave us
    And the RIRs don't quite believe us
    As they head for the door we'll go on as before
    You may not be happy, but please don't be sore

    We've just reorganized ICANN
    We've kept the crazies at bay
    We've got a wonderful feeling
    Everything's going our way
