Code Monkey Like Fritos 196

Greyjack writes "Jonathan Coulton's latest song in his thing-a-week series, Code Monkey, is an anthem for under-appreciated developers everywhere. From the song: 'Code Monkey get up get coffee / Code Monkey go to job / Code monkey have boring meeting, with boring manager Rob / Rob say Code Monkey very diligent / But his output stink / His code not functional or elegant / What do Code Monkey think?' Like virtually everything he does, he's released it under a Creative Commons license -- go forth, download, and share the goodness!" Update: 04/23 19:23 GMT by SM: Several users have also provided a torrent.

    Coulton is great. The first track of his I ever heard was "Mandelbrot Set". Gotta love a song that includes the lyrics "badass f'in fractal"

    Well, I rise up every morning at a quarter to eight
    Some woman who's my wife tells me not to be late
    I kiss the kids goodbye, I can't remember their names
    And week after week, it's always the same

    And it's Ho, boys, can't you code it, and program it right
    Nothing ever happens in the life of mine
    I'm hauling up the data on the Xerox line

    Then it's code in the data, give the keyboard a punch
    Then cross-correlate and break for some lunch
    Correlate, tabulate, process and screen
    Program, printout, regress to the mean

    Then it's home again, eat again, watch some TV
    Make love to my woman at ten-fifty-three
    I dream the same dream when I'm sleeping at night
    I'm soaring over hills like an eagle in flight

    Someday I'm gonna give up all the buttons and things
    I'll punch that time clock till it can't ring
    Burn up my necktie and set myself free
    Cause no one's gonna fold, bend or mutilate me.

    I know you slashdot weenies like to think everything must be free, in whatever version of the term you like to use... but being free doesn't immediately make something good. If someone doesn't like the song, they have every right to say "this song sucks". Although, on slashdot the only acceptable choices are for everyone to hate it, or everyone to like it, and any viewpoints opposing the groupthink will quickly be modded into oblivion.
