[Day 16] My students wrote me a song

Story: my students wrote me a song.

Backstory: I help teaching CS106B this quarter. CS106B is a introductory computer science course that teaches fairly basic CS concepts such as data structures (such as stacks, queues, sets), recursion, pointers.

Frontstory: I got the song stuck in my head.

Somebody once told me that Chip is gonna roll me
I ain’t the sharpest student in the class
She was looking kind of smart with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an “CS” on the whiteboard

Well, the queues start coming and they don’t stop coming
Fed to the nodes and I hit the ground coding
Didn’t make sense not to code for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head explodes

So much to do, so much to see
So what’s wrong with taking the back trees?
You’ll never know if you don’t go
You’ll never whine if you don’t code

Hey, now, you’re an Chip Star, get your game on, code, yay
Hey, now, you’re a Chip Star, get the code on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting pointers break the code

It’s a bool place and they say it gets bolder
You’re bundled up now wait ’til you get older
But the memory men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the PNG picture

The screen we hate is getting pretty thin
The supply’s getting warm so you might as well whim
My computer’s on fire. How about yours?
That’s the way I like it and I’ll never get bored.

Hey, now, you’re an Chip Star, get your game on, code, yay
Hey, now, you’re a Chip Star, get the code on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting pointers break the code

Somebody once asked should I copy or just pass
I need to get myself away from this space
I said yep, what a concept
I could use a little lair myself
And we could all use recursion, ayyyyy

Well, the queues start coming and they don’t stop coming
Fed to the nodes and I hit the ground coding
Didn’t make sense not to code for fun
Your brain gets smart but your head explodes

So much to do, so much to see
So what’s wrong with taking the back trees?
You’ll never know if you don’t go
You’ll never whine if you don’t code

Hey, now, you’re an Chip Star, get your game on, code, yay
Hey, now, you’re a Chip Star, get the code on, get paid
And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting pointers break the code

And all that glitters is gold
Only shooting pointers break the code
