I bang the keyboard — but you understand
The work is piling at a higher rate
Instead of doing this hard work by hand
I really should just automate

It’s a shellscript, just a script of shell —
But I don’t know just how I could tell
It’s a victim of its own success
As I’m maintaining this unholy mess

Data’s growing, and the files are flat
Performance sucking, something must be done
It must be accessed by this thing and that
Just add a DB, it is fun!


Now people saying that it’s hard to use
And all this typing is a pain
Without menus, buttons, we will lose
I’ll add a GUI, don’t complain


Now we’re selling this, we have no shame
But the customers don’t stop to call
I keep on saying that it’s really lame
But all good programs started small!
