What do you do while waiting for very large data transfers to complete? By large I'm talking upwards of Terabytes. My mind wanders and suddenly the theme for Rawhide gets stuck in my mind! But it's different. The music is similar, but the words have changed. It's almost like Dust Puppy was singing the song.

Flowin' Flowin' Flowin'
Flowin' Flowin' Flowin'
Flowin' Flowin' Flowin'
Flowin' Flowin' Flowin'
Raw Bytes

Keep Flowin', Flowin', Flowin'
Though the datastreams are swollen
Keep them bytes Flowin', Raw Bytes
Through switches and wires and routers
Hell bent for bandwidth

Wishin' my smartphone was by my side
All the things I'm missin'
Good cat videos, Netflix and tweetin'
Are waiting at the end of my transfer

Move 'em on, zip 'em up
zip 'em up, move 'em on
Move 'em on, zip 'em up, Raw Bytes
Cut 'em out, pipe 'em in
Pipe 'em in, cut 'em out
Cut 'em out, Pipe 'em in, Raw Bytes

Keep Flowin', Flowin', Flowin'
Though they're disapprovin'
Keep them bytes Flowin', Raw Bytes
Don't try to understand 'em
Just grep 'em, zip, and save 'em

Soon we'll be streamin' high and wide
My smartphone calculatin'
My true love will be tweetin'
Be waitin' at the end of my transfer

Move 'em on, zip 'em up
zip 'em up, move 'em on
Move 'em on, zip 'em up, Raw Bytes
Cut 'em out, pipe 'em in
Pipe 'em in, cut 'em out
Cut 'em out, Pipe 'em in, Raw Bytes

Flowin' Flowin' Flowin'
Flowin' Flowin' Flowin'
Flowin' Flowin' Flowin'
Flowin' Flowin' Flowin'
Raw Bytes
Raw Bytes

The things we do while migrating data into the cloud.
