Code Monkey

Our Guild Leader, Dita, brought the song “Code Monkey” by Jonathan Coulton to my attention. What a great song! Here’s a WoW-type video for the song:

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!

And another video that I really like too. So creative!

Code Monkey Lyrics:

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

Code Monkey think maybe manager oughta write goddamn login page himself
Code Monkey not say it out loud
Code Monkey not crazy just proud

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you

Code Monkey hang around at front desk
tell you sweater look nice
Code Monkey offer buy you soda
bring you cup bring you ice

you say no thank you for the soda ’cause
soda make you fat
anyway you busy with the telephone
no time for chat

Code Monkey have long walk back to cubicle
he sit down pretend to work
Code Monkey not thinking so straight
Code Monkey not feeling so great

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you a lot

Code Monkey have every reason
to get out this place
Code Monkey just keep on working
to see your soft pretty face

Much rather wake up eat a coffee cake
Take bath, take nap
This job fulfilling in creative way
such a load of crap

Code Monkey think someday he have everything even pretty girl like you
Code Monkey just waiting for now
Code Monkey say someday, somehow

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
with big warm fuzzy secret heart
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you

    I love Jonathan Coulton! “Skullcrusher Mountain” makes me laugh and “Lady Aberlin’s Muumuu” is sweet because it’s about Lady Aberlin :)

    Code Monkey has been stuck in my head all day. Now, I have to listen to it again for real! LOL. I did the same thing with Re: Your Brains a couple years ago.
