VLAN Down By The River

Sung to the tune “Rolling on the River” by Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Lyrics originally written by Brian McDonald

Bet a good job is a Net Admin
Workin’ for the WAN ev’ry night and day
And I never lost one packet of a frame’
Worryin’ ’bout how the load balance been

Big switch keep on addressin
‘Proud Core keep on routin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the VLAN

Cleaned a lot of routes in Memphis
Pumped a lot of NAT down in New Orleans
But I never saw the good side of a HASH
‘Til I hitched a ride on a VLAN queen

Big switch keep on addressin’
Proud Core keep on routin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the VLAN
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the VLAN

If you come down to the dat center
Bet you gonna find some PORTS who’re live
You don’t have to worry ’cause you have if you got no CAT
People in the data center are happy to give

Big switch keep on addressin’
Proud Core keep on routin’
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the VLAN
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the VLAN
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the VLAN
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the VLAN
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the VLAN
