The Lyrics

Original song by John Flansburgh and John Linnell. New lyrics by Al Hayfever. Based on the development stages of the Ada programming language, with other related references.
Strawman, Strawman,
Sucking liquid out of a can,
Is he a bale or is he Ada?

Weak as a noodle that's been wet,
If you say "Put", he will Get,
Or will "Put" Get him instead?
Nobody cares. Strawman.

Woodenman, Woodenman,
Woodenman upgrades Strawman,
DOD fights, so do Shaolins,

Steelman, Steelman,
Strong as a Man O' Steel, Man!
Improvement over all weaker man,

He can count the minutes by hand,
Make an array of eons per land,
Look who thinks he's Clever Dan!
Powerful man, Steelman.

Tinman, Tinman,
When rusty needs an oil can,
Midpoint of the development span,

Is he beta or is he less?
Can he sort a numerical mess?
Who picked the name "Tinman"?
Downgraded man, Tinman.

Ironman, Ironman,
Tony Starks is Ironman,
Ozzy takes a bite, Iron beats Tin,
