In The Lab

from Animatic [Deluxe] by Ultraklystron

about

A song about that time I was working late night on a programming assignment, and I noticed the two CS labs were divided by gender for no obvious reason. Everything beyond that point is fiction and silly.

lyrics

ch.
girls in the windows lab / boys in the linux lab / everybody do work / in the computer labs

v1.
stepped out the lab to buy another coke / notice i'm surrounded by blokes
all of new to this gnu business / trying to get code to compile in this
walk through the lab that stallman hates / the one most loved by william gates
every chair there is filled with gals / most looking like my fujoshi pals
just like us boys they were trying code / they had operators to overload
only keystrokes could break the silence / all of us struggling with assignments
a bro rolls up, tries to mack on them / he fails hard, they're attacking him
i stroll right by holding in a laugh / he couldn't even do modulo math

v2.
i can't work out these dependencies / and i know this code all depends on me
i won't cheat like these other students / don't need a peer to chip in two cents
want to be truant, but i can't escape / guess i'll have to parse til a line break
in the windows lab, the same scene is mirrored / gotta get nodes to connect to peers
it's just as feared, firewall drama / whips us all like we were a llama
missed a comma and a semi-colon / recompile but it's clearly broken
neither sides gonna rest tonight / still gotta black box test it, right?
is this a metaphor, or just some code / truth told, i don't even fully know

v3.
3 am and progress is made / i'm using vectors so forget arrays
forget today, it's tomorrow i guess / joke is the work doesn't help on tests
so i duck down into the other room / they bump dubstep, and the bassline booms
tell those girls i enjoy their choice / they say "you're not like those other boys"
i say "that right's i'm the ultra kly / comp sci rapper known to often fly
coast to coast hitting cons galore / some folks deplore but most adore"
right then my code properly compiled / both rooms screamed, we all went wild
seven girls said they were so impressed / it's about then i retired to rest
