[To the tune of  Barry Manilow's "Copacabana"]

 

His name is Bobby, he is a tester

He finds bugs that crash his app and interrupt his devs' naps

He knocks on their doors, and they see his grin

They ask him what he found and into their office he does bound

He moves the mouse, he taps the keys

His devs blanch as they watch him and then they start to wheeze

 

At the test lab, test lab'ratory

The bugs the testers do quarry

At the test lab, test lab'ratory

BVT blockers and app meltdown gawkers

At the test lab, they have such fun

 

Her name is Brenda, she is a hot shot

Her code it runs so well, the other devs think she is swell

She thinks testers are not needed

"They only move the mouse around, in my code there's naught to be found."

Bobby took her on, he refused to fawn

He was ready to do battle from dusk 'til dawn

 

At the test lab, test lab'ratory

The bugs the testers do quarry

At the test lab, test lab'ratory

BVT blockers and app meltdown gawkers

At the test lab, they have such fun

 

It was a challenge, Bobby was ready

He sat down and got to work, annoying Brenda was a perk

His fingers danced as he explored

It didn't take him long, Brenda had barely lit her bong

Her code went up in flames, Brenda no longer reigned

And ev'ry other tester knew they could have done the same!

 

At the test lab, test lab'ratory

The bugs the testers do quarry

At the test lab, test lab'ratory

BVT blockers and app meltdown gawkers

At the test lab, they have such fun

 

 

*** If you know you could have done the same, and you're looking for a fun job on a great team, I need a tester! Interested? Let's talk: Michael dot J dot Hunter at microsoft dot com. Great testing and coding skills required.
