Code Monkey

Yes, I'm totally grooving on the new Patty Griffin album (so far Burgundy Shoes makes me cry every time), but I believe that this latest Jonathan Coulter offering may be my favorite song for the next three hours:

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 dilligent
But his output stink
His code not “functional” or “elegant”
What do Code Monkey think?
Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write god damned 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

(more verses to follow)
