(sung to The Beatles “Let it Be”)

(I’ve never found out who wrote this one, or this varient. I’ve modified it slightly from the text I found)

When I find my code in tons of trouble,
Friends and colleagues come to me,
Speaking words of wisdom:
“Code in C.”

As the deadline fast approaches,
And bugs are all that I can see,
Somewhere, someone whispers
“Code in C.”

Code in C, Code in C,
Code in C, Code in C.
LISP is dead and buried,
Code in C.

I used to write a lot of FORTRAN,
for science it worked flawlessly.
Try using it for graphics!
Code in C.

If you’ve just spent 30 hours
Debugging some assembly,
Soon you will be glad to
Code in C.

Code in C, Code in C,
Code in C, yeah, Code in C.
Only wimps use Python.
Code in C.

Code in C, Code in C,
Code in C, oh, Code in C.
Pascal won’t quite cut it.
Code in C.

Code in C, Code in C,
Code in C, yeah, Code in C.
Don’t even mention COBOL.
Code in C.

And when the screen is fuzzy,
And the edior is bugging me.
I’m sick of ones and zeroes.
Code in C.

A thousand people people swear that T.P.
Seven is the one for me.
I hate the word PROCEDURE,
Code in C.

Code in C, Code in C,
Code in C, yeah, Code in C.
PL1 is 80’s,
Code in C.

Code in C, Code in C,
Code in C, yeah, Code in C.
The government loves ADA,
Code in C.
