about

A little tune about how communication would be much easier if we were all databases.
Think about it.

lyrics

SQL

When you walked in, I knew at once you were from another world
I could tell that you were not a high tech kind of girl
Pretty little thing walked up to me and said "Can you fix my Dell?"
God I wish your heart was SQL

Well you had a nice new laptop, and it could run Facebook real fast
And it ran it even faster after I killed those spyware apps
Man that thing would cruise if you'd just run it on a Linux shell
God, I wish your heart was SQL

So sha la laaaaa
Na na naaaaaa
De doo doo doo
De dah dah dah
It might as well be gibberish for all that I can tell
God I wish your heart was SQL

We're installed on different platforms - I'm Unix and you're a Mac
I've been sending all these packets out but not getting any back
I thought debugging C was bad, but this is total hell
God I wish your heart was SQL

I wanted to write up a codec
Gonna interface me with you
But the odds of success are somewhat questionable
I wanted to tell you just how I feel
But I’m not so good with words
So this part goes in hexadecimal...

69 6c 75 76 75

So I wish we had a future or even just a right now
Maybe we could work this out, but I just can’t see how
The only thing you know about FTP is how it's spelled
God, I wish your heart was SQL
