The Lyrics

Pacing note...I've replaced some of Ronnie Spector's "whoaoao"s with actual words so while the pacing is sort of off in a couple of places, it sort of isn't. This is the version I used for reference:
I'm programming a web site
And maybe one day
I'll get it right

Someone's job was cut
And was off-shored to me
'Cause I said I'll do it for less
But I'm charging hidden fees

And working in Ukraine
For U.S. company
Good for me
I'll keep their site crappy

Well, my coding is buggy
But my employers
Don't know enough to bug me

I am over here
And they are over there
We are separated by the sea
So I screw up with no cares

I'm working in Ukraine
And making code that sucks
For big bucks
And working for some schmucks

Yes that's what they are
I've raised the rip-off bar
If they complain
I will explain it costs more to fix

Working in Urkraine
And making dollars green
Getting rich
That company's my b*tch

Oh, oh, here comes my check, oh oh
I'll get richer and richer
Charging "low" fees
Parody by Mason "it's not a bug, it's a feature! Bwahahaha!" Resnick
