     The Compiling Song
- Dustin Kirk

I was using my pad in the middle of the day
just sitting here
waiting here
compliling my way

Time is passing by like an infinite loop
I gotta do this for my group

the file's Pro C as you can see
doing nothin'
going no where
compiling on my P C

My friends pass by and wave through the window
As I sit here
wait here
watchin' this go slow

It sits on a solaris
The sun it may be
not a light year away
yet lots of latency

Just one hour to go till my code is compiled
it's doing it's thing
just sitting here
waiting here
compi-l-ing

We be rippin some code
which is quite functional
except when compiling
its just not punctual!

As I sit here staring off into space
I think of the time
I've been sitting here
it is such a big waste

SQL is pretty groovy
Return a tuple
create a view
But I've been here so long, I've wrote a song for you

The program is here just plodding away
While I sit here
wait here
for the light of day

I see the curser
it stopped flashing green
the work is complete
with the results on the screen

Theres a bug in the code
my program fails right at the begin
it just sits there
waiting there
I have to compile again.
     History
During a 12 hour programming stint with team members in my Database Systems class, I wrote this song.
