“I’m a Beefy Miracle” song

[Note: Blame Jef Spaleta. Jef challenged me to write lyrics for a song about Beefy Miracle -- one of the candidates for the Fedora 17 release name -- to Hot Chocolate's "I Believe in Miracles (You Sexy Thing)" in the event that Beefy Miracle becomes Fedora 17's release name. I accepted and, thanks to the voting Fedora public, Beefy Miracle was chosen as the release name for the May 2012 edition of Fedora. Being a man of my word, here is my version of the song, with sincere apologies to Hot Chocolate and anyone else associated with the original song.]

I’m a Beefy Miracle
[sung to the tune of “I Believe in Miracles (You Sexy Thing)” by Hot Chocolate]

I’m a Beefy Miracle
ready to
run your machine
(your machine, yeah)

I run Beefy Miracle
since I’m booting up
F17

Where did you come from, Beefy?
How did you know you’d replace Verne?
How did you know the mustard shows the progress?
How did you know I’d always say “hell, yes”?
Yesterday I was running Fedora 16
Now you’re on my laptop drive, keeping it alive.

I’m a Beefy Miracle
ready to
run your machine
(run your machine, yeah)

I run Beefy Miracle
since I’m booting up
F17

Now that your time’s come, Beefy
How do you plan to be the one?
Did you know your cutting edge with relish?
Did you know Ocelot is jealous?
Every day, you show quality performance
running all the desktops free, even KDE

I’m a Beefy Miracle
ready to
run your machine

I run Beefy Miracle
since I’m booting up
F17

Boot me (you beefy thing)
Run that script (you beefy thing)
I love the way your using GNOME (you beefy thing)
Xfce

Yesterday I was running Fedora 16
Now you’re on my desktop box – that’s not such a shock.

I’m a Beefy Miracle
ready to
run your machine
(run your machine)

I run Beefy Miracle
since I’m booting up
F17

Boot me
Run that script
I love the way your running GNOME
or KDE,
Xfce
