Following recent events, our anonymous lyricist has rewritten The Rambus Opera. Here goes.

The Rambus Opera

Sung to the song "Don't cry for me Argentina", from the opera Evita

Don't cry for me Craig Barrett

[Barrett, Barrett, Barrett, Barrett]
[Barrett, Barrett, Barrett]

It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I failed
That I still love you after all that I've done

You won't believe me
All you will see is a patent you once knew
Although she's dressed up to the nines
All sixes and sevens with you

I had to let it happen, I had to sue
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of court

So I chose a jury trial
Running around, trying every patent infringement claim
But nothing impressed the jury at all
I never expected to be found guilty of fraud

Chorus:

Don't cry for me Craig Barrett
My soul is with you
My whole life, I dedicate to you
Don't keep your distance

I need you

And as for fortune, and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired

They are illusions
Edlestone is not the solutions he promised to be
The answer was here with you all the time
I love you and hope you love me

(chorus)

Chorus2:

Don't cry for me Craig Barrett
I have never left you
Although in silence, my soul cries to you
Now and forever

[I am Intel]
I am Rambus

[Ahh, so I chose freedom for Rambus, ahh]

[Barrett, Barrett, Barrett, Barrett]
[Barrett, Barrett, Barrett]

So I chose to sue
Running around, suing everyone
But nothing stood up in court at all
I never expected it to lose

(chorus)
(chorus2)

Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you.
But all you have to do is look at me to know
That every word is true

[Geoff Tate breaks down in tears]

[Gary Harmon resigns as CFO]
