Holding Out for a CU

(sung to the tune of ‘Holding Out for a Hero’ by Bonnie Tyler)



Where have all the good versions gone

And where are the quality report cards ?

Where's the code wise Developer to fight the rising bugs?

Isn't there a new version checked into the (maven) repository?

Late at night I toss and I turn

And I dream of what I need


I need a CU

I'm holding out for a CU til the end of the night

It’s gotta fix wrongs

And it’s gotta install fast

And it’s gotta pass regression tests, alright?


I need a CU

I'm holding out for a CU 'til the morning light

It’s gotta be sure

And it's gotta be soon

And it’s gotta be better than CU5



Somewhere after midnight

In my wildest fantasy

Somewhere just beyond my reach

There's SaaS CD reaching back for me

Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat

It's gonna take a new LMS to sweep me off my feet


I need a CU ... repeat


Up where the faculty meet the Deans above

Out where the governance body meets quarterly

I could swear there is vendor, somewhere

Watching me

Through the wind, and the chill, and the rain

And the storm, and the flood

I can feel an RFP approach like a fire in my blood


I need a CU ... repeat
