Coding in the Deep
(Elegy for WDS-I)

Peter J. Holzer

There's a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bringing me out the dark
Finally I can see it crystal clear
The new database is going to be here.

See how we'll make all all your specs come true
Don't underestimate the things that we can do

The data cube will
Provide the basis
Acessing it
Along any axis
Will just be a breeze

The web access tool
Will make it easy
To search for and
Select what you need.

Transforming data,
Preparing tables
Automate it
You could do it all

We could have it a-a-all
Coding in the deep
We have the future in our hands
And we'll make it
Shiny'n new.

But the fire
wasn't spreading
The task seemed to large
You didn't share our dream.

The missing features remind of it
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
My Windows VM just ain't no Linux
I can't help thinking

We almost had it a-a-all
Coding in the deep
We had the future in our hands
But we missed it
By a hair
