I Like Make.

In some of my posts I have casually mentioned
The fact that I like to write Make.
This little post is more to the point
Roll out the manual and lend me your ears

I like Make. It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like Make. It helps me unwind
And sometimes it makes me feel mellow
(all) (Makes him feel mellow)

C++’s too rough, Java costs too much
Rust puts my mouth in gear.
This little refrain should help me explain
As a matter of fact I like Make
(all) (he likes Make)

My boss stands mum when we’re having a scrum
And I’m building rules on the fly
She’s writing CMake and thinks I’m a flake
When I yell as devops goes by

I like Make. It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like Make. It helps me unwind
And sometimes it makes me feel mellow
(all) (Makes him feel mellow)

C++’s too rough, Java costs too much
Rust puts my mouth in gear.
This little refrain should help me explain
As a matter of fact I like Make
(all) (he likes Make)

Last night I dreamed and would not awake.
And I went to a place so swell
Oh, the build was clear and written with make
Then they turned it all into shell
(all) (aw)

I like Make. It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like Make. It helps me unwind
And sometimes it makes me feel mellow
(all) (Makes him feel mellow)

C++’s too rough, Java costs too much
Rust puts my mouth in gear.
This little refrain should help me explain
As a matter of fact I like Make
(all) (he likes Make)
