Comp Sci Serenade

(to My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean)
by Terry Bollinger & The Watt Five

My program lies under the backlog,
My card deck's all over the floor,
The plotter is using a crayon,
And I just can't take any more.

Bring out, bring out,
Oh, bring out my printout today, today!
Bring out, bring out,
The one you ripped off yesterday.

The card reader chewed up my job card,
And someone erased all my files,
The system has been down for hours,
While people collapse in the aisles.

Flunk out, flunk out,
I worked like a dog each and every day!
Flunk out, flunk out,
Twelve projects were due yesterday!

Security holes I've discovered,
The records of grades are now mine.
What once was a one point five average,
Is now a three point nine nine!

Send out, send out,
Oh, send out those grades to big companies!
Send out, send out,
They'll all want a scholar like me!
