The Lyrics

Damn code, why's it so slow?
Can't go out while it loads
So I have to find
Ways to pass time
Pen-swordfight with me (don't hit my eye)

It's been thirty minutes since I pressed the key to compile, compile
Been rubber-band flickin', I'm waitin' for code to compile, compile
Compile, compile

Waitin' for this code
I'll play cards with you
Skippin' on a rope
Practice tumble rolls
Dude, join in with me (you know it's shite)

Time says forty minutes since I pressed that key to compile, compile
Arrange cubicles while I'm waitin' for code to compile, compile
Compile, compile

I heard a door go creak
Think that's the boss, oh jeez
Oh, we'll both lose our jobs
This is lame, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

"Best tell me why you two
Aren't workin' hard like you should
And instead you're on top
Of your chairs with ruler swords?"
Boss, I must tell the truth
We would work, oh, if we could
But our code's kinda clogged
The load time's stretched like before

At least fifty minutes since we pressed that key to compile, compile
So we've been sword-fightin', we're waitin' for code to compile, compile
Compile, compile
Boss just shrugs and zips it, knows it takes so long to compile, compile
Back to weird role-playin', still waitin' for code to compile, compile
Compile, compile

I actually did some coding back in school. Can't remember a damn thing about it, though. So it's like every other subject, then.
