Java Song

The first time I listened to The Java Posse podcast, I thought its intro music was weird and I didn’t pay much attention to it. Last week, I downloaded another episode and listened to the song more carefully. To my surprise, the song lyrics were about Java!!

To satisfy my curiosity, I searched about this song in Google and found in Dave Brillhart‘s blog a post with a link to download the Java Song!. Dave Brillhart said:

I think Sun employees wrote and recorded that song. Anyone recall who? A verse near the end states: “Nobody can tell you what the future may bring…”. Well, that was 8 years ago. Check this out!

After reading all the description of Java Posse episodies, I found this information:

“Java” the parody song Copyright 1997 Broken Records and Marjorie Music Publ. (BMI), written and performed by Loose Bruce Kerr of the Dr. Demento Show and Sun Microsystems attorney. Based on the WWI popular song, “Ja-da.” Ukelele style on the recording taught to Bruce by his dad.

You can download the song here. Do you want to sing?

Java by “Loose Bruce” Kerr

Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

It’s not a cup of coffee but it’s hot as can be

Came pourin’ through the Gates on a “Big Mac” Nealy

Singin’, Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

Microsoft thought Java really could be a threat

Java through the Windows maybe put them in debt

Gates, he took a license but he altered the feel

Java members all said, “Bill, you’re outa the deal!”

Singin’, Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

It’s like a cup of coffee ’cause it’s tasty and fresh

But it’s not really Java if the flavors don’t mesh

Pure Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

Microsoft released a browser, Java was there

The Sun, it rose and lit up what was really a dare

The RMI, the JNI were missing and lost

Scott said, “Bill, you broke your promise, Now pay the cost!”

Bill said, “Hey, my recipe is richer than yours”

Scott said, “I own the coffee shop, sit down and I’ll pour”

Pour Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

Nobody can tell yet what the future may bring

All we know is Java goes jing-jing-jing

It goes Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

(Scott really means it)

Java, Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing

(Bill you better believe it)

Java, Java Java jing-jing-jing
