The Lyrics

Guy DiRito might like this one. Then again...
When did computer go down?
Hardest it did ever land.
I should have stayed off the line.
I should have persuaded my boss-man.

You knew luck just don't last forever
with guys who signed up with you.
And now attachments that you should not open
have turned your monitor's screen
so blue-ue-ue...
Oh, oh, oh...
Oh, oh, oh...

So don't let no dumb hicks write code
or your workers are going to howl.
You can't plant seeds in the desert
or cubicle guys, they will scowl.

Back 'em out, those dumb hicks, they ain't no good
back to their trailer abode.
Oh, I've finally decided the future's saved
if no dumb hicks will write co-o-ode.
Oh, oh, oh...
Oh, oh, oh...
Ahhhh...

What do you think we'll do now
with our messed-up frames of main?
It'll take us a couple of vodker and tonics
before we can compute again.

Maybe you'll get some replacements.
There's plenty good men to be found.
Monster-dot-com, it has many
sniffin' those guys who compute
off the grou-ou-ound...
Oh, oh, oh...
Oh, oh, oh...

So don't let no dumb hicks write code
or your workers are going to howl.
You can't plant seeds in the desert
or cubicle guys, they will scowl.

Back 'em out, those dumb hicks, they ain't no good
back to their trailer abode.
Oh, I've finally decided the future's saved
if no dumb hicks will write co-o-ode.
Oh, oh, oh...
Oh, oh, oh...
Ahhhh...

Yes, Sir Elton says "vodker" in the original, not "vodka."
