[with apologies to The Carpenters]
Why do the coders go on coding?
Why don't the functional tests run?
When will the system specs be written?
Why aren't the designs all done?
Don't they know it's the end of the project?
It ends at the end of the month
Why is my girlfriend in Seattle?
With all of her friends except me?
For the first reading of her new book
Which I won't get to see
Doesn't she know it's the end of the project?
Though it end, I'll have lost her love
