The Lyrics

This song is dedicated to Diane, who is entomologist
My friend is en-tomologist
she does research on bugs and bees
She knows mosquito from the gnat
she can name beetle just like that

Ha ha ha!
What I see?
Little brown bug
do I know thee?

She can be found in Finnish woods
has been in Costa Rica too
collecting insect specimens
recognizing all of them

Ha ha ha!
What I see?
Little brown bug
do I know thee?

Dipterians we just call files
they are annoying two-winged guys
Formica - yes, they are ants
grashoppers - orthopterians

Ha ha ha!
What I see?
Little brown bug
do I know thee?

Her dearest tool is microscope
it's best to give just any hope
to see the subtle differences
on camouflage on wasps and bees

Ha ha ha!
What I see?
Little brown bug
do I know thee?

And should she ever daughter get
the name to give - well, I can bet:
I'll guess she'd name her Deborah -
or better still, hey, Melissa!

Ha ha ha!
What I see?
Little brown bug
do I know thee?

While I do coding, my insects
can be found in the source code text
we can agree of common vice
- always one more bug survives!

Ha ha ha!
What I see?
Little brown bug
do I know thee?
"Debora" means "honeybee" in Hebrew; it is "melissa" in Greek.
