You better watch out, you better back up,
Because all support for Cygwin will stop:
CGF is go-oing down...
He's one of the thugs who manage Cygwin,
He adds all the bugs because he is mean:
CGF is go-oing down...
He knows the ins of signals, he knows both spawn() and fork()
He has his own environment that makes all programs work...

His manner is rude, he lurks on the lists,
He'll make you spit food and clench both your fists:
CGF is go-oing down...
He has the gall not to spend all his time
On fixing our bugs and this is a crime:
CGF is go-oing down...
Cygwin will just be better with no CGF,
Until the day you find a bug and run screaming WTF?!!!!

You better watch out, you better back up,
Because all support for Cygwin will stop:
CGF is go-oing do-o-o-o-o-o-o-own!
