I just found a modified version of a famous song by Francesco De André called "Il Pescatore".

The name of this remake is: The Ballad of the Programmer and it's about a poor programmer dealing with a client that wants "everything by yesterday, wants absurd features and wants to pay as little a possible" (pretty standard behavior for small and medium sized software companies in Italy), so he has to work day and night without eating and dreaming of a tropical beach (also standard dream of every developer working in the grey and foggy Milano).

The lyrics are in Italian but here is the translation made by Google Translation.

And here you can listen to the MP3.
