I Cracked the Two Kay

To the tune of "My Way"...../

And now, the end is near;/ And so we face the final deadline./ My friend, I'll say it clear,/ I'll make my case, for a dollar sign./ / I've lived a life that's full./ I've coded each logical pathway;/ But more, much more than this,/ I cracked the two kay./ / Crashes, I've had a few;/ But then again, too few for mending./ I did what I had to do/ And got it through without abending./ / I planned each charted source;/ Each careful step along the cyberway,/ But more, much more than this,/ I cracked the two kay./ / Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knowed/ When I bit off more than I could code./ But through it all, when there was doubt,/ I ripped it up and churned it out./ I thrashed it all and I stood tall;/ And cracked the two kay./ / I've typed, I've tabbed and paged./ I've had my filler; my share of coding./ And now, as tears subside,/ I find it all so foreboding./ / To think I did all that;/ And may I say - not in a shy way,/ "No, oh no not me,/ I cracked the two kay"./ / For what is a geek, what has he got?/ If not his PC, then he has naught./ To type commands he truly feels;/ To shun the nerds and all the heels./ The CDROM shows I took the blows/ And cracked the two kay!/

So which pays more, programming or song writing. Your talents are wasted on an unappreciative public, as is true with all genius.

Why thank you kind sir!

I'll try to keep churning out the hits from this end of Tin Pan Alley.

With all the encouragement I'm halfway through (trying to) write a real (original!) love song. Girl loses boy...regretfully looking at empty pillow type of thing, complete with music. Country(ish) ballad will need voice as clear as a bell. How the hell do you get anything published let alone noticed. Still it was all due to Faith & Uncle Deedah. Thanks
