    "Finnegan The Folk Hero" Lyrics

    In a field of corn
    Is a master's shoe
    Click the master's shoe
    There's a blue-tailed fly
    Click a blind man's foot
    See a horse's tail
    It's down to Finnegan
    The folk hero of HTML

    This is the tale
    Of a clever sod
    Was his gift from God
    He slaved all night
    Coding the master's site
    Never paid a cent
    What was his by rights

    How the website burns
    Since Finnegan fell!
    Let's pray that he returns
    From web designer hell
    He's the only one can fix it
    Fix it good and well
    Finnegan, the folk hero of HTML

    He could stream Quicktime
    He could code in Flash
    He could make your icons dance with Java
    Then empty out your trash
    But Finnegan's dead
    Rotted clean away
    Because the bastard master
    Never gave him any pay

    How the bastard yells
    'cause the website's down
    When he taps his URLs
    All he gets is '404 Not Found'
    By the coffee machine
    Screaming Finnegan's name
    But the folk hero is dead
    And there is no-one left to blame

    We've lost our shirts
    Now Finnegan's gone
    If he had got his just deserts
    We could've been cracking merrily on
    'cause there was just one man could fix it
    Fix it good and well
    That's Finnegan, the folk hero of HTML

    When the web is quiet
    On a moonlit night
    There is phantom code
    On the master's site
    Some say it's spiders
    Or a bot from hell
    Like hell! It's Finnegan, the folk hero of HTML
