Pythonic

Pythonic
Jane Mailander has a song called “Pythonic” about Monty Python TTTO “Ironic”. I thought this has to be written:

Original: Ironic (Alanis Morisette)


A Dutch man, with a brand new OS
He wrote a language for it, from scratch more or less
So he borrowed a name from a comedy troup
And he stole some ideas from an academy group
And isn’t it Pythonic…don’t you think

[Chorus]
It’s like code so clear, you just know what it means
It’s just objects at work ’cause we don’t need no beans
It’s the one way to do it because we don’t need two
And wouldn’t you know, it’s Guido

Its structure’s determined by spaces and tabs
It was proved to be better by testing in labs
The block-starting colon — it’s there to be clear
The language’s so pretty, without any peer
And wouldn’t you know, it’s Guido

[Chorus]
Well the library has a funny way of having it all
When you think you will have to code and having to do it by yourself
And the library has a funny way of just being dumb
When you think it’s got it all it’ll just go blowing up
In your face

Some metaclasses when you need them that bad
Some generators for flow that is mad
It’s like ten ways to do it but one is the best
It’s learning just what you need,
And then learning all of the rest
And isn’t it Pythonic…don’t you think
Almost too Pythonic…and, yeah, I really do think…

[Chorus]

The library has a funny way of having it all
The library has a funny, funny way of just blowing up
Just blowing up
