Larry Ellison is purchasing virtually the entire island of Lanai, Hawaii. How amazing, how opulent.
I’ve written a special song for the occasion …
(sing to the tune of “Gilligan’s Island”)
Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale
A tale of Larry’s trip
That started toward Lanai
Aboard his massive ship.
Our Larry was a mighty wealthy man
His future brave and sure
Larry set his sights that day
For a pre-purchase tour, a pre-purchase tour.
The negotiating started getting rough
Two percent didn’t change hands
If not for the bullheaded Dave Murdock
He’d have the whole island, he’d have the whole island.
Corporate headquarters moved to this expensive desert isle
Mark Hurd too
Some Sun servers and some tapes
Exadata and Tom Kyte
Here on Ellison’s Isle.
So this is the tale of the headquarters
It’s here for a long, long time
They’ll have the very best of things
It’s not an uphill climb.
No IBM or Microsoft
Or Itanium chips lest
It make Mr. Larry uncomfortable
In the tropic island nest.
There’s golf! There’s mansions! There’s motor cars!
Ev’ry possible luxury,
Like rich old Donald Trump,
As blinged-out as can be.
So join us here each week my friends
You’re sure to get a smile
From Oracle corporate headquarters
Here on “Ellison’s Isle.”
