What a wonderful code

When a friend told me to listen to the song “What a wonderful world”
by Louis Armstrong, I ended up changing the lyrics from:

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I love you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

to this:

I see lines of Perl, some comments too.
I see them run for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful code.

I see references to arrays and hashes of strings,
The bright blessed calls, the dark sacred ‘die’,
And I think to myself what a wonderful code.

The colors of the syntax highlighting so pretty in VIM,
Are also on the faces of the people going by
I see functions sending parameters saying how do you do
They’re really saying I callback for you.

I hear developers crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful code
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful code.

– Swaroop

Note: Contrary to the lyrics, I actually like Perl.

  1. Except for ” hear developers crying, I watch them grow”, it isn’t anti-Perl at all!

    There is a song of the same name by Simon And Garfunkel (the people who sang the original ‘Cecilia’) .. give it a listen and see what you can make of it :) !!
