They're Coming To Make Me Write ASP!


watch video

Remember when you ran away
Big Blue got on their knees
And begged you not to leave
PDE'd go berserk

You left 'em anyhow
And then the days got worse and worse
And now I see you've gone
(Completely out of your mind)

And they're coming to take you away ha-haaa
They're coming to take you away ho ho hee hee ha haaa
To the Redmond farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And you'll be happy to see those nice young men
In their - see? Sharp coats
And they're coming to take you away ha haaa

We thought it was a joke
And so we laughed
We laughed when you had said
That you could leave the FLOSS and work for Bill

Right? You know we laughed
You heard us laugh. We laughed
We laughed and laughed but still you left
But now we know you're utterly mad

And they're coming to take you away ha haaa
They're coming to take you away ho ho hee hee ha haaa
To the happy home with bugs and Vista and viruses
Security "fixes" which patch and patch and open new hacks and holes
And they're coming to take you away ha haaa

We've read your blogs
And used your code
And this is how you pay us back
For all our kind unselfish, loving deeds?
Ha! Well you just wait
They'll find you yet and when they do
They'll make you write with ASP.net
You well-dressed geek

And they're coming to take you away ha haaa
They're coming to take you away ha haaa ho ho hee hee
To Camp Microserf where life is beautiful all the time
And you'll be happy to drink that nice Kool-Aid
In their clean white cups
And they're coming to take you away

Nick, you are sending mixed signals. It is unclear to me how you really feel about me leaving Eclipse behind :)

Thanks a lot for the tribute/roast. You are indeed the Poet Laureate of the Streets. That was brilliant!

I suppose that's because I spent 6 years at U(W) getting an education at POETS.

For those not in the know, POETS is Put Of Everything 'Till Sunday.

Or Piss On Everything, Tomorrow's Saturday.

Either way, sound advice.
