The Lyrics

Also recorded by Elvis in the '70's, but the lyrics I found on the web don't have all the verses, so I don't know if Elvis recorded them all.

This is a SQL database coding parody, so it's techy.
If I'd SELECT to
And I knew WHERE too
I'd have such power
Then I would get ARRAYS
I'd say with pride,
"This data BINDS!"

And I might change their ORDER
I'd CREATE the need
If you don't read
Between the lines

Code Sequel in my sleep
I code Sequel in my sleep
The money I reap
Do the work while I sleep
I code Sequel in my sleep

Now when those TABLES
Get DROPPED around you
It's just a SELECT-ion
Or you could be GRANT-ing
Some exclusive RIGHTS
To chaos pros
Well then you might have to hire
Some kind of protection
You'd better use PASSWORDS on every FILE
That you dis-CLOSE

Now if we spend the day
LINK-ing FIELDS to one another
Make sure the LINK
Is not a spare
Or you'll be the fool
In every COLUMN
But when I choose them
They just confuse me
Not very cool

Code Sequel in my sleep
I code Sequel in my sleep
I don't work for cheap
Make my customers weep
I code Sequel in my sleep

When there are mistakes in CALCULATIONS
It gives me a headache
I know that I have made me quite a few
And wasted time
Now if I SUM-med up all the FIELDS
I'd have lost my MEM'RY
Through E-mail, I'll MIME
The results of my query
A DISTINCT crime, crime

Code Sequel in my sleep
I code Sequel in my sleep
My job is UNIQUE
And my work's at it's peak
I code Sequel in my sleep

Code Sequel in my sleep
I code Sequel in my sleep
Their logic I leap
Cause my paycheck's too steep
I code Sequel in my sleep

DKTOS, so no vote. Is SQL a maufacturer ( Like Westinghouse ) or a programming code ( like basic, C++, etc. )?

SQL means Structured Query Language, it's more like a script language. T-SQL is a subset of SQL used by Microsoft.

Being a techie-geek myself, I'm happy to support techie parodies by my fellow geeks. Good job. PARODY-SQL-RETURN-CODE=555.
