Parady of Rockstar by NickelBack - For Programmers...


(Sung to Nickelback's "Rockstar")

I'm through with going for jobs when I never get in
It's like not having a masters is a mortal sin
this job hasn't turned out quite the way I want it to be…
(tell me what you want)

I want a new laptop with an extra wide screen
I want unlimited access to the coffee machine
And a big pay rise and my parking paid for me
(so what ya need?)

I need an optical link thats got no limit,
And a brand new router with a firewall in it
Gonna piss off hackers that would love to take my source code from me
(Been there, done that)

I want a new VM full of ram and speed
The amazon cloud won't fulfil my needs
I need an enterprise solution not the crap you can get for free
(so how you gonna do it?)

<CHORUS>
 I'm gonna trade the job for fortune and fame
 Wear a t-shirt and jeans and design a game

 Cause we all just wanna be code rockstars
 Writing iPhone apps while at coffee bars

 The shares come easy and and the tools are cheap
 We're all more productive since we gave up sleep

 And we'll...

 Blog our thoughts on our own websites
 Send off random tweets at around midnight

 We'll give up soap and not wash our hair
 But our codes so cool that no-one will care

 And uh.. hay hey I'll be a code rockstar
 Hay hey I'll be a code rockstar
</CHORUS>

I wanna be great like Steve, without the glasses
I wanna lead the pack not be part of the masses
Sign a couple autographs so I can get my tools for free...
( well heres the deal)

I'm gonna style my code in the latest fashion
ganna turn down dinner at the Bill Gates mansion
Gonna get a big investor to fund my IPO for me
(so how you gonna do it?)

<CHORUS>
 I'm gonna trade the job for fortune and fame
 Wear a t-shirt and jeans and design a game

 Cause we all just wanna be code rockstars
 Writing iPhone apps while at coffee bars

 The shares come easy and and the tools are cheap
 We're all more productive since we gave up sleep

 And we'll...

 Blog our thoughts on our own websites
 Send off random tweets at around midnight

 We'll give up soap and not wash our hair,
 But our codes so cool that no-one will care

 And we'll chat online with the coolest dudes
 putting down any language that lacks attitude

 We'll bitch about the closing down of pirate bay
 And complain about the nazis at the RI double A

 Well... Hay hey I'll be a code rockstar
</CHORUS>

Using Node.js to hack up a service
Though it's performance claim really make me nervous

Get burned out hackers writing all my code
Then cry like a baby when it's slow to loooooad...

<CHORUS>
 Cause we all just wanna be code rockstars
 Writing iPhone apps while at coffee bars

 The shares come easy and and the tools are cheap
 We're all more productive since we gave up sleep

 And we'll...

 We'll bitch about the closing down of pirate bay
 And complain about the nazis a that RI double A

 Well... Hay hey I'll be a code rockstar.

 Yeah... Hay hey I'll be a code rockstar.

</CHORUS>

(you suck!)
