Wikipedia song (Ol’ Man River)


 

„Wikipedia“ (Showbot)

Here we all work on that Wikipedia
Here we all work while the others read
Writin’ them texts from the dawn till sunset
Gettin’ no rest at the laptop’s heat

They look up, we look down
We don’t dare make the arbcom frown
Bend no rules and blue that link
And clean the cats until we stink

Let me go ‘way from the Wikipedia
Let me go ‘way from the knowledge tree
Show me circles called encyclopaedia
Those are circles where I long to be

Wikipedia, that Wikipedia
It must know plenty, but there warns no entry
It just keeps scrollin’, it keeps on scrollin’ along

It won’t make money, and it won’t give stardom
And those who edit are soon forgotten
But Wikipedia, it just keeps scrollin’ along

You and me, in spite of bots
Fingers all achin’, worn skin and stubs
Fix that code and block that land
You are a little bold and you will get banned

I’m addicted and try admittin’
There’s a right of leavin’, but I’m scared of quittin’
And Wikipedia, it just keeps scrollin’ along
