|one, come you single one,|
|Who will work hard||C|
Oh, you're dirty, love, and unshaven, love,
And your jeans are full of holes.
And to wed with a poor programmer
Is not on my list of goals.
Though I'm dirty, love, and unshaven, love,
And my jeans may not be new,
I've got millions in my bank account,
And in stock options, too.
Oh, then why did you not say so
In the first place, pray tell?
You're a software engineer, my love,
And I love you as well.
Do you think that I'm such a loser, then,
And so down on my luck
That I'd marry a poor yuppie girl
Who would soon spend all my bucks?
I can search the world's lonely hearts ads
In the blink of an eye.
Just you watch, now; I'll be wedded
To some other girl by and by.
I'm compatible, I'm eccentric,
User-friendly, and free.
And I don't care a single bit, me boys,
What the world thinks of me!
