Which Cord is This?
Sung to the tune of What Child Is This...
Which cord is this that came to rest
Behind my console a cable nest?
Things work well now, but still somehow
I fear that there's something un-plug-ed!
O! Dear! Will the printer work?
The mo-dem talk back or go berzerk?
Pray, tell, has gone something wrong:
A cable has done gone un-plug-ed.
It's been three weeks and yet still no sign
The scanner works and I've been on-line.
The cable see, it hangs loose and free
I checked and no ports had gone emp-ty
Praise be, I shall not give up
I'll find a way to get re-hooked-up
No shame, 'cause I won't self-blame,
When a cable has done gone un-plug-ed
I'm done, I'm sure: I have found the cure
It was not pain-ful, rude or obscure
I broke no laws and used both my paws
To pull out all the whole of that ca-ble
Tug! Tug and I soon did find
A twisty cable that did un-wind.
There, friends as I saw two ends,
For the cable was plugged into to nothing!
