(WARNING FOR HUMOR DEFICIENT PEDANTS: Reality, argument, truth, and sense were all subordinated to finding a rhyme and the odd weak pun ;))
To the tune of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".
It was twenty years ago this year
Dr. Alan brought Nirvana near,
It's been going in and out of style
but it's guaranteed to make you smile.
So may I introduce to you
The "lang" you've know for all these years
Dr. Alan's Smalltalk Squeakin' Band.
We're Dr. Alan's Smalltalk Squeakin' Band
We always send the Transcript #show:
Dr. Alan's Smalltalk Squeaking Band
Sit back and let the objects flow.
Dr. Alan's Smalltalk, Dr. Alan's Smalltalk,
Dr. Alan's Smalltalk Squeakin' Band
It's wonderful to program, it's certainly a thrill.
It's such a nice environment
We hope it's soon ubiquitous
In everybody's home!
I don't really want to stop the show,
But I thought you might like to know,
That the syntax simply won't go wrong,
If you take the time to get along.
So let me introduce to you
The one and only IDEeeeeeee
of Dr. Alan's Smalltalk Squeakin' Band.
