Kludging My Software

(to the tune of Killing Me Softly)
by Brad Needham

I heard he'd written good code in top-down structured style
and so I thought I'd hire him to fill in for a while.
And there he was, this young boy, a stranger to my eyes...

Fixing Pascal with machine code
Patching my bytes with his words
Kludging my software with his code
Kludging my software with his code
Writing my comments in his words
Kludging my software with his code.

I felt all flushed with fever. How could he be so proud?
He found my documents and read each one out loud!
I prayed that he would finish, but he just kept right on...


He took my finished modules, perfect beyond compare
and then he tore right through them as if I wasn't there.
And he just kept on writing, patching left and right...
