The Lyrics

What's in a byte?
Eight bit members four times sixty-three,
This could be a subnet mask you see,
Drop one member from the right.

Now take that byte,
You know that bits when even in a frame,
Have no value that they can retain,
They're not weighty in a byte.

Oh, they'll be no funny dealings when they're locked in the ROM,
That's why when OS calls it's tended in EPROM.

Eight bits per byte,
That's the sizing scheme devising be.
That is everything the scheme will see,
Eight bits render just one byte.

Bytes you can hash with a few odd volts you'll plunder,
Spinin' the bits around and makin' the reader wonder.

So that's a byte.

When it's eight bits on that makes the byte,
You'd be wrong, if eight times ten you'd cite,
It's not eighty that's not right.

Oh, they'll be no funny dealings when they're locked in the ROM,
That's why when OS calls it's tended in EPROM.

Eight bits per byte,
That's the sizing scheme devising be.
That is everything the scheme will see,
Eight bits render just one byte.

Bytes you can hash with a few odd volts you'll plunder,
Spinin' the bits around and makin' the reader wonder.

So that's a byte!
(So that's a byte!)
So that's a byte!
(So that's a byte!)
So that's a byte!
(So that's a byte!)
