The Underfull Badness Blues

by Frankeye Jones
(Sing to the tune of "Do Run Run")

I thought I put the backslashes in
I thought I did it right;
But when I tried to run the thing
The screen displayed this sight:
"Error, error, error," it said
So I've got no time to lose
My line's too long and my bracket's missing
I've got the underfull badness blues
(a-do-run-run-run, a do-run-run)

I can do most anything
With Latex as a tool
Make boxes, tables, Greek letters too
And I can alter the size of my pool
But wait!I got too excited again
It's the same old, not-good-news
My control sequences are in error again
I've got the underfull badness blues

My life is like a Latex run
With trials and errors each day
The fates one minute are on my side
Then they slip and slide away
I lose my keys, I'm out of Scope
I'm totally missing my cues
The cats have fleas and the water heater burst
I've got the overfull/underfull badness blues
(a-do-run-run-run, a do-run-run)
