What a Wonderful Code


(With apologies to George Weiss and Bob Thiele)

I can see the code, and change it too
I can make it do things I want it to do
And I think to myself, what a wonderful code

I see people around hacking the code
most of them only wears a bathrobe
And I think to myself, what a wonderful code

The functions is so pretty, the logic so clean
The source is free, GPL is not mean
Anyone who wants, can contribute
And if they want to, they can also distribute

The code is evolving, I watch it grow
I learn much more when I read the code
And I think to myself, what a wonderful code
Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful code

oh yeah
