"Perl-Operated Boy"

Lyrics are a parody/filk of Coin-Operated Boy, by Dresden Dolls.

Perl-operated boy
Sitting on a drive, he's a Unix toy
I hit execute, and he comes to life
automatic joy

That is why I wrote a Perl-operated boy

He can be a lot like C
multi-purpose and convenient
who could ever ever ask for more?
love without complications galore

Yes sometimes when we are ..hugging
He will die, and need debugging
object-oriented he can be
yet sometimes he won't orient to me

Perl-operated boy
all the other real ones that i destroy
cannot hold a candle to my new boy and i'll
never let him go and i'll never be alone

and I'll never let him go, and I'll never be alone-Go
and I'll never be alone- GO
and I'll never be alone- GO
and I'll never be alone- GO
I'll never be alone-
not with my Perl-operated boy

......this bridge was written to make you feel smittener
with my sad picture of cryptic love figure
can you extract me from my complex syntactics
i didn't think so but i'm still convinceable

will you insist object-orientation
is better in other linguistic formations
and will you persist by proceeding to bet me
a billion dollars that Python is easy

will you claim there's a chance
for straight-forward romance
(slash programming)
i want itx4
I want youx8
i want ax4
i want a ...Perl-operated boy.

..and if i had a star to wish on
for my life i cant imagine
any boyfriend using that much RAM
in our bed he's such a ...gentle-man.

Perl-operated boy
he may not be real experienced with 'borgs
but i know he feels
like a boy should feel
isn't that the point

that is why i wrote a
Perl-operated boy

with his synthy Perl-operated voice
saying that he loves me
that he's thinking of me
straight and to the point
that is why i wrote
a Perl-operated boy.
