The Lyrics

My first - and probably my last - song about computers
I know the basic stuff
Pascal and... C plus plus
I do not find them rough
I know ones you ain't heard of
Well now... two hours of hacking time
Gets me 10,000 that ain't mine
I'm a rich rich man cause I am
King of the code

Spent 5 years, learning this
Childhood I... guess I missed
All my time by this wall
Don't play no basketball
I broke old coding, hard as hell
Shame, there's no one I can tell
I'm a lonely man but still am
King of the code

And like, that dumb guy Icarus who flew to the sun
I tried to pull off, what should not be done
I'm really quite good but not quite so great
That I can steal from the account
Of Mister Bill Gates

I sing,
Jailers make me feel bad
In prison, garb I'm clad
I can't do squat to them
Ain't got my IBM
Ah, but, 5 years and I'll be free
And I'll be working legally
Then I might be poor but no more
King of the code

Cute. Awaiting the sequel, Roger Miller's "Do-Whacka-Do" turned into "Do-Hacka-Do."
