Alabama song (Whiskey bar)

by Sinister (Friar)
on May 13, 2002 at 12:39 UTC ( #166158=poem: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Inspired on The Doors's great Alabama Song

Well, show me the way
To the next foo bar
Oh, don't ask why
Oh, don't ask if

Show me the way
To the next foo bar
Oh, don't ask why
Oh, don't ask if

For if we don't find
The next foo bar
I tell you me must carp
I tell you me must croak
I tell you, I tell you
I tell you we must die

Oh, moon of Camels
We now must say goodbye
We've lost our good old map
And must have foo, oh, you know why

Oh, moon of Camels
We now must say goodbye
We've lost our good old splice
And must have foo, oh, you know why

Well, show me the way
To the next little split
Oh, don't ask why
Oh, don't ask unless...

Show me the way
To the next little split
Oh, don't ask why
Oh, don't ask unless...

For if we don't find
The next little split
I tell you me must carp
I tell you me must croak
I tell you, I tell you
I tell you we must die

Oh, moon of Camels
We now must say goodbye
We've lost our good old grep
And must have foo, oh, you know why

    The Doors's great Alabama Song

    The song was originally by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weil. ;-)

    Actually Alabama Song was written by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill.

    Nice cover though ;--)

    I'm 21 and I've only ever heard the David Bowie version. I thought he wrote it, obviously not. Good song anyway.

    Very cool. I mean I don't know very well just yet what "foo" or "grep" or "carp" or "croak" mean but still, the Doors rule and it flowed nicely like the song. Sorrily I can only assume most of the terms you put in make sense as you used them but still, I commend your creativity none the less.
      Well, let me help you there...

      "foo" is just a term to specify something... When you hang around longer you'll see a lot of Monks using foo for a variable name like $foo = "bar"
      "bar" is like foo.(eg: $bar = "foo")
      "grep" is a function in perl which will enable you to easily search through lists (and much more once you get the hang of it)
      "carp" and "croak" are also functions in perl, which make perl die (aaaah....)

      So now you know!
