Steve, Steve
Steve of the Ballmer,
A guy who has no hair.
Watch out for that chair.

Steve, Steve
Steve of the Ballmer,
Lives a life that's free.
Watch out for that chair.

When he gets in a scrape,
he makes his escape
with the help of his friend,
a guy named Bill.
Then away he'll schlep
on his elephant Shep
While Fella and Ursula
Stay in step.

Well....Steve, Steve
Steve of the Ballmer,
Friend to you and me.

Watch out for that chair.
