The Engineer's Song
(sung to the tune of The Beverly Hillbillies)

Come and listen to a story bout a man named Jed,
A poor college kid barely kept his family fed,
But then one day he was talking to a recruiter,
He said, "They'll pay ya big bucks if ya work on a computer,"
VAX that is .... CRT's .... Workstations.

Well the first thing ya know ol' Jed's an Engineer,
The kin folk said, "Jed move away from here,"
They said, "Arizona is the place ya oughta be,"
So he bought some doughnuts and moved to Ahwatukee,
Motorola that is .... dry heat .... no amusement parks.

On his first day at work they stuck him in a cube,
Fed him some doughnuts and sat him at a tube,
They said "Your project's late but we know just what to do,
Instead of 40 hours, we'll work you fifty-two!"
OT that is .... Unpaid .... Mandatory.

The weeks rolled by and things were looking bad,
The schedules slipped and some managers were mad,
They called another meeting and decided on a fix,
The anwser was simple, "We'll work'em sixty-six!"
Tired that is .... Stressed out .... No social life.

Months turned into years and his hair was turning gray,
Jed worked real hard while his life was slippin' 'way,
Waiting to retire when he turned sixty-four,
Instead he got a call and they excorted him out the door,
Downsizing that is.... Debriefed.... Unemployed....
