To Tune of Foreigner's Juke Box Hero

...dedicated to all the keyboard warriors out there
Sittin' in the cube, with his head hung low
Couldn't get the right answer, and the data ran slow
Heard the roar of the crowd, he could picture the scene
Put his ear to the wall, then like a distant scream
That fine keyboard, just blew him away
Saw numbers in his eyes, and the very next day...

Wrote a nice little macro, then hit the door
Didn't know if it'd work, but he knew for sure
That one keyboard, felt good in his hands, didn't take long, to understand
Just one keyboard, slung way down low
Was a one way ticket, only one way to go
So he started programmin', ain't never gonna stop
Gotta keep on programmin', someday gonna make it to the top

And be a spreadsheet hero, got cells in his eyes, he's a spreadsheet hero
It took one macro, spreadsheet hero, cells in his eyes
Spreadsheet hero, (cells in his eyes) He'll come alive tonight.
