This song! This is one of those songs that I loved immediately upon impact and then spent a week listening to on repeat. If you’re a geeky music lover, you’ve probably heard it already, but I was late to this particular party. Oh well. Better late than never. The story is: code monkey works a boring desk job programming shit. It plays on most of the stereotypes of office life and IT life, is funny, and is incredibly catchy. Yey.
“Code monkey get up get coffee. Code monkey go to job. Code monkey have boring meeting with boring manager Rob. Rob say code monkey very diligent, but his outputs stink. His code not functional or elegant, what do code monkey think? Code monkey think maybe manager want to write god damn login page himself. Code monkey not say it out loud. Code monkey not crazy, just proud.” Awwwr. The plight of the desk jockey everywhere. Poor code monkey. I like you.
