The Lyrics

All engineers know (or should know) the KISS principle
Well, I'm checking down the parts
and inspecting flowcharts
Keep the customer satisfied -
If they want the Windows
too bad if it then blows
But at least I have tried -

Keep it simple!
Keep it simple!
Don't let the specs of your task
grow your head a pimple!
Reduce it while you still can
Make it light to understand
Just have solution on your hand
And keep it simple!

Well, I'm a-sitting at computer
Playing troubleshooter
And shortcut is what I seek
It's a nasty thing
when the things don't swing
there's work needed for all week

Write in Java
run compiler
I gotta know if that solution will be saviour
I may fail and I may win
though I'll never try the same again
So open up, I'm climbin' in,
So keep it simple!

Well I'm running now the code
trying to easen workload,
got a world of trouble on my mind
Lookin' for solution which
would be resolution
- It' so hard to find

Keep it simple!
Keep it simple!
Don't let the specs of your task
grow your head a pimple!
Reduce it while you still can
Make it light to understand
Just have solution on your hand
And keep it simple!
"Grow a pimple on one's head" = Finnish geek expression of an extremely frustrating or nasty project or task

Not sure about the translation to English, but no Finnish-ing school is necessary here.
