Come and listen to a story ‘€˜bout a man named Jed

Come and listen to a story ‘€˜bout a man named Jed,

Song parody on the theme song to ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’ — what if Jed Clampett were a computer programmer?

Come and listen to a story ‘€˜bout a man named Jed,
A poor college kid, barely kept his family fed,
But then one day he was talking to a recruiter,
Who said, ‘€œthey pay big bucks if ya work on a computer…’€

Windows, that is … PC’€™s … Workstations …

Well, the first thing ya know ol’€™ Jed’€™s an Engineer.
The kinfolk said ‘€œJed, move away from here’€.
They said ‘€œCalifornia is the place ya oughta be’€,
So he bought some donuts and he moved to Silicon Valley …

Intel, that is … Pentium … big amusement park …

On his first day at work, they stuck him in a cube.
Fed him more donuts and sat him at a tube.
They said ‘€œyour project’€™s late, but we know just what to do.
Instead of 40 hours, we’€™ll work you 52!’€

OT, that is … unpaid … mandatory …

The weeks rolled by and things were looking bad.
Schedules started slipping and some managers were mad.
They called another meeting and decided on a fix.
The answer was simple … ‘€œWe’€™ll work him sixty-six!’€

Tired, that is … stressed out … no social life …

Months turned to years and his hair was turning gray.
Jed worked very hard while his life slipped away.
Waiting to retire when he turned 64,
Instead he got a call and escorted out the door.

Laid off, that is … de-briefed … unemployed …

Now the moral of the story is listen to what you’€™re told,
Companies will use you and discard you when you’€™re old.
So gather up your friends and start your own firm,
Beat the competition, watch the bosses squirm.

Millionaires, that is … Bill Gates … Steve Jobs …

Y’€™all come back now’€¦ ya hear?
