The Lyrics

Some boys write C, some like VB
I think that's okay;
Fortran - maybe, that's not for me
I have found my way:

They have functions, they have structures
They are pain to write -
And what comes to code debugging
It's hard to get them right

Living in the computer world
Where I am the Camel girl
Many languages in the computer world
And I like coding in Perl

Some do science and some crunch numbers
Some write games to play
Some do graphics, some do web things
But Perl is top, I say

Living in the computer world
Where I am the Camel girl
Many languages in the computer world
And I like coding in Perl

Living in the computer world
Where I am the Camel girl
Working in the computer world
And I like coding in Perl

Now Perl with Toolkit is cool and is hip
it's stable and it's fast:
you'll do sockets, you'll do graphics
problems are the past

Ain't no pointers, just strings, arrays
Windows coding's fun!
You'll debug it while you write it
just compile and run!

Living in the computer world
Where I am the Camel girl
Many languages in the computer world
And I like coding in Perl

A computer, computer, computer, computer world
Where I am the Camel girl (Camel girl!)
And I like coding in Perl

I usually don't like tech-geek parodies, but this one tickled me for some reason. Nice job, Susannah! 545

As a Perl nut, I had to vote. Very good...I thought the pacing missed in a couple spots, but enjoyed it thoroughly nonetheless.
