♫ Tester's Paradise ♫
Def Self
Eigenclass Records

[verse 1]
As I walk through the office, back to my desk
I take a look at my code, and realize there's nothing left
'Cause I've been Sass'n and laughing so long
That even my HAML thinks that my mind is gone

But I aint ever crossed a WAN that didn't support git
Me check into a Clearcase/trunk? You know that's unheard of
You better watch how ya talkin
And where you blockin
Or you and your controllers might have more logic than Spock

I really hate to JIT, but I gotta though
As they croak, I see myself in the VM smoke
Fool

I'm the kinda g the little homies wanna be like
On vimrc in the night
Submitting pulls in the screen light

[chorus]
We've been spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise
We've been spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise
We keep spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise
We keep spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise

[verse 2]
They got Team Foundation, they got me facing
I can't live a normal life - I was raised by the l33t
So I gotta be down with the vim team
Too much configuration got me chasing keys

I'm an educated fool with money on my mind
Got my gem in my hand, and TDD in VI
I'm spec'd out tester, set-trippin' cuker,
And my stories is down, so don't arouse my features
Fool

Wealth aint nothin but a deploy away
I'm livin life do or die, what can I say?
I'm twenty-three now but will I be poor at twenty-fo
The way things is going I don't know

Tell me why are we so blind to see that the ones we hurt are proprietary

[chorus]
We've been spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise
We've been spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise
We keep spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise
We keep spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise

[verse 3]
Power in the money, money in the power
Image after Image, hour after hour
Everybody's cloud'n, but half of them aint lookin
At what's going on in the kitchen, so I don't know what's cuking

They say I got to ship, but nobody's here to beat me
If they can't unit test, how can they reach me?
I guess they can't
I guess they won't
I guess they're @%^*#$

That's why I know their life is out of luck
Fool

[chorus]
We've been spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise
We've been spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise
We keep spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise
We keep spending most our lives, living in a Tester's Paradise

Tell me why are we so blind to see that the ones we hurt are proprietary
Tell me why are we so blind to see that the ones we hurt are proprietary
