Yellow Subroutine

To the tune of “Yellow Submarine” by The Beatles

“In the town where I was born,
Lived a man, who played with ‘C’.
And he coded his whole life
On a stack of Function Keys.

So we traced to his data schemes,
Til we found a ‘C’ routine..
And we lived beneath the SAVES,
In our yellow Sub-Routine…

Chorus:
WE ALL live in A YELLOW SUB-ROUTINE,
YELLOW SUB-ROUTINE, YELLOW SUB-ROUTINE …. (ETC)

When our friends are on the boards,
Many MODEMS RETURN NEXT:FOR
Then the BAUD RATE goes astray…
(B-B-BEEP, BEEP BEEP B-B-BEEP..)

Chorus (IF YOU CAN STAND IT!)

As we live in Memories
Every one of us Returns Linefeeds…
CPU and ‘C’ Routine,
In our yellow SUB-Routine…
