Demo bound

Demo bound
TTTO “Outward Bound”, Echo’s Children


“They’re looking for a programmer,” my buddy said one day
“‘Course, the only thing that’s better than the perks you get’s the pay,
But it does mean work in start-up” I said “Get out of my way!”
And the deadline is looming now

[Chorus]
I’ve been working 12 hour days now, since we begun
I’ve been working 12 hour days now, we’re almost done
I’ve been working 12 hour days and hey it almost runs
And the demo is working now

There is a product being built, it’s lots of lines of code
We’re hoping and we’re praying that it won’t crash and explode
The effort’s astronomical, the show is on the road
And the demo is working now

We’ve written all our test suites and we hacked until they passed
And every bug that now we find — we’re sure that it’s the last
It’s looking so impressive that we’re sure it’s unsurpassed
And the demo is working now

I’m drinking lots of coffee so I can keep working late
I’m eating lots of calories and gaining lots of weight
But though I’m dead and tired, I’m really feeling great
‘Cause the demo is working now

I’ve written all my code and now my heart is in my throat
And if it doesn’t work right, there’s a chance that they won’t note
We’re learning all the speaking parts ’till we know them by rote
And the demo is working now

We mean to build this product to be used throught the ‘verse
And though the demo is OK, it wasn’t too diverse
So now there’s bugs from users and we fix them and we curse
Though the demo is working now
