we are datamaticians

The Computer Song

Chorus
We are Datamaticians, and yes we got a plan,
To have our data systems deployed throughout the land:
In schools and clubs, in banks and pubs, in parliament as well -
We even have a system that can program hell!

Verse 1
Good day my lords and ladies, I’ll introduce myself:
I am the great protector of this nation and its health.
With science and technology I solve the countries woes,
And set a fine example for its friends and foes.

Verse 2
You may think this is silly, but I have lots of proof,
’ve even got some software that can pull a baby’s tooth,
And kids don’t have to study for I’ve solved their homework plight,
They just download a program that can read and write.

Verse 3
You never have to worry; you'll never have to work:
While thousands remain jobless one computer does their work.
You’ll never have to leave you home for food, come rain or shine,
And when you want romance you just can date on-line.

Verse 4
In C++ and Java, of course a little C,
To build the ideal system, they’re good enough for me.
I'll hack and crack, and kick and whack to have my coding work,
And have a lot of backups when it goes berserk.

Verse 5
I knew a bloke called Billy, a troubled man indeed,
From pain and strife and worry, my system had him freed.
Now every time he suffers, sins or ends up in the lurch,
He emails his confessions to an on-line church.

Verse 6 And yes my dear it’s progress, the way the world will go:
No horse and cart, no book and pen, just information flow.
For all you ever need in life just login and then surf.
Computers do it all, we don’t need human birth!
