The Anthem of My Business

This is a bit old, but I love it to pieces and listen to it when I need inspiration. I try not to listen to it when actually coding because the tears of laughter make it hard to see semicolons. (The fact that its Creative Commons and totally free is a nice bonus, too — although after one listen to it I would have gladly paid money for it. However, since its free, I haven’t taken time to send the guy so much as a $1 Paypal thanking him for his time. I think there is a lesson here for a segment of the uISV community regarding pricing-as-signal.)

Code Monkey

Lyrics below the jump.


Code Monkey get up get coffee
Code Monkey go to job
have boring meeting with boring manager Rob
Rob say Code Monkey very diligent
but his output stink
his code not functional or elegant
what do Code Monkey think
Code Monkey think maybe manager oughta write [blasted] login page himself
Code Monkey not say it out loud
Code Monkey not crazy just proud

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you

Code Monkey hang around at front desk
tell you sweater look nice
Code Monkey offer buy you soda
bring you cup bring you ice
you say no thank you for the soda ’cause
soda make you fat
anyway you busy with the telephone
no time for chat

Code Monkey have long walk back to cubicle
he sit down pretend to work
Code Monkey not thinking so straight
Code Monkey not feeling so great

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you a lot

Code Monkey have every reason
to get out this place
Code Monkey just keep on working
to see your soft pretty face
Much rather wake up eat a coffee cake
Take bath, take nap
This job fulfilling in creative way
such a load of [crud]

Code Monkey think someday he have everything even pretty girl like you
Code Monkey just waiting for now
Code Monkey say someday, somehow

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you

[Edit: Owing to the fact that a significant number of customers visit this blog for whatever reason, I’ve bowlderized the lyrics slightly.]

    That’s an hilarious song indeed!

    I’ve heard that a while ago and got hooked since, but just like you, I never got around to actually donating or buying anything else.
