Seems like there quite a lot of videos for this song.

Humor, Song, Code Monkey
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...
I already posted on my Italian blog last week, but I think this is great, so wanted to share here on Codeclimber: Technorati tags: humor
