Circular Error

Parody of “Circle of Error” by Sixpence None the Richer (parody by FadeAway)

I see the count reset again

back from where it was going to where it’s been

once more in a rut

does the first two but

it never gets to three

and I’ll admit it disturbs me so

when my silley program just will not go

tracing subtle bugs

seems like every rug’s

been pulled out from under me

and my circular error

will go round and round

and my circular error

will go round and round again

(and again)

I’m running code into the ground

the results I’m seeking have not been found

the bug prevails

every time it fails

bringing cries of “not again!”

so i will try debugging mode

in the midst of this spaghetti code

all I want is to

increment past two

just to break this loop it’s in

and my circular error

will go round and round

and my circular error

will go round and round again

and my circular error

will go round and round

and my circular error

will go round and round again

count to one

count to two

then I scream

oh ponder my friend

the time I’ll spend

writing all these subroutines

again

(guitar solo)

and my circular error

will go round and round

and my circular error

will go round and round again

and my circular error

will go round and round

and my circular error

will go round and round again

Note:

This is a parody of the song as actually sung by Sixpence. That version has some lyrics not found in the liner notes. They go approximately so (transcribed as best as possible, considering their penchant for muffled vocals) <g> ……:

can I ask

can I find

can I scream

for you to forgive

the time I’ve spent

on this awful carousel

again
