Official GeekyBack and “SSH in a Box” Lyrics

You may be familiar with Justin Timberlake’s SexyBack


I’m bringing geeky back.
Those other newbs don’t know how to hack
If you’re so 1337, why’d you buy a Mac?
Sudo apt-get and I’ll complete your stack.

load ’em to the cache…

Dirty data
You see I’ve tackled
unicode in waves.
I’d keep you open if you’d only save.
It’s just that no one hexed in ASA.

Get your hexy on
Go ahead be coding
[Repeat 6 times]

Get your hexy on

I’m bringing geeky back
Them other … don’t know how to hack
Come let me pyparse all up in your stack.
‘Cause your regex sucks I gotta fix it fast.

load ’em to the cache…

I’m bringing hexy back
You subpar hackers watch my grep attack.
If that’s your URL you best urlparse a path
‘Cause your punctuation is all outta whack.

Take ’em to the meetup

Come here URL
Go ahead be coding
come for the hack
Go ahead be coding
Go ahead be coding
Scripts in C?

SSH in a Box

Not gonna mail you a cleartext string
Cause creds like that don’t hide anything.
Not gonna force another RSA start
Girl you’re gotta learn more than wi-re-shark.

Not gonna default you to homelessville
Cause a password like that is the kind they steal.
Wanna MD5 you to a UPC code
Somethin’ unique, girl.

It’s ssh in a box
ssh in a box, babe
It’s ssh in a box
Ooh, ssh in a box, girl

I’m secure enough to know
You need encryption, and I got just the key,
A two factor key–that’s right–a second plus one.

To all the admins out there with users to protect
It’s easy to do just follow these steps…

Step 1, apt-get on that box
Step 2, open ports on that box
Step 3, ssh to that box
And that’s the way you do it

It’s ssh in a box!

Special thanks to the anonymous poet. Inspired by Travis Hoppe‘s excellent PyParsing talk at Data Wranglers DC, Helping data get its sexy back. And, of course, shellinabox.
