The Beatles and C Programming

                                      
       If you're not familiar enough with the Beatles to sing along, 
    you're too 
    young...    
    
    Eleanor Rigby
    
    Sits at the keyboard
    And waits for a line on the screen
    Lives in a dream
    
    Waits for a signal
    Finding some code
    That will make the machine do some more.
    What is it for?
    
    All the lonely users, where do they all come from?
    All the lonely users, why does it take so long?
    
    Guru MacKenzie
    Typing the lines of a program that no one will run;
    Isn't it fun?
    Look at him working,
    Munching some chips as he waits for the code to compile;
    Where is the style?
    
    All the lonely users, where do they all come from?
    All the lonely users, why does it take so long?
    
    Eleanor Rigby
    Crashes the system and loses 6 hours of work;
    What is it worth?
    Guru MacKenzie
    Wiping the blood off his hands as he walks from the grave;
    Nothing was saved.
    
    All the lonely users, where do they all come from?
    All the lonely users, why does it take so long?

    Nowhere Man
    
    He's a real UNIX Man
    Sitting in his UNIX LAN
    Making all his UNIX .plans
    For nobody
    
    He's as wise as he can be
    Programs in lex, yacc and C
    UNIX Man, can you help me
    At all?
    
    UNIX Man, please listen
    My printout is missin'
    UNIX Man
    The wo-o-o-orld is your 'at' command

    Let It Be
    
    When I find my code in tons of trouble,
    Friends and colleagues come to me,
    Speaking words of wisdom:
    "Write in C."
    
    As the deadline fast approaches,
    And bugs are all that I can see,
    Somewhere, someone whispers:
    "Write in C."
    
    Write in C, Write in C,
    Write in C, oh, Write in C.
    LOGO's dead and buried,
    Write in C.
    
    I used to write a lot of FORTRAN,
    For science it worked flawlessly.
    Try using it for graphics!
    Write in C.
    
    If you've just spent nearly 30 hours
    Debugging some assembly,
    Soon you will be glad to
    Write in C.
    
    Write in C, Write in C,
    Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
    Only wimps use BASIC.
    Write in C.
    
    Write in C, Write in C
    Write in C, oh, Write in C.
    Pascal won't quite cut it.
    Write in C.
    
    Write in C, Write in C,
    Write in C, yeah, Write in C.
    Don't even mention COBOL.
    Write in C.
