Eight builds a week

Livin in a timebox
Guess you know its rough
Gotta build every day, babe
Even half baked stuff

Build it, ship it
Build it, ship it

Ain't got time for design, babe
8 builds a week

Build it every day, babe
Build it right on time
One thing i can say, babe
No time for design

Refactor it, test it
Build it, ship it
Ain't got time for design, babe
8 builds a week


Big Projects Got No Reason To Live

(sing to the tune of Short People by Randy Newman)

Big projects got no reason
Big projects got no reason
Big projects got no reason to live
If you got too many coders
To fit in a room
You know that your project
Is destined to doom
So we don't want no big projects round here

Big projects got no reason
Big projects got no reason
Big projects got no reason to live
When you smell the code
You know you got to inhale
We like small projects
Cause XP don't scale
So we don't want no big projects round here

 


I can't code alone... cause I need my pair

(sing to the tune of "She's Got a Ticket to Ride")

I guess I'd better go home
Its time to go play, yeah
That pair programmer I had
Called in sick today, yeah

I can't code alone
Cause I've tried
Gotta have my pair by my side

I can't really write any code
Cause I need my pair
Cause I need my pair

When I'm refactoring code
He always sits right, always sits right by me
When we're runnin our unit tests
He always sits right, always sits right by me

I can't code alone
Cause I've tried
Gotta have my pair by my side

I can't really write any code
Cause I need my pair
Cause I need my pair
Code together


Code Together

(sing to the tune of Come Together)

you got: no requirements
you got: no schedules
you got: pair programmers
you got: lots of pepsi
you got: goal donors tellin you stories
one thing i can tell you is you can't code in threes
code together
right now
with xp


you got: ree-factoring
you got no documentation
you got: cases of pepsi
you got index cards up to your knees
go ahead and change that cause you know change is free
code together
right now
with xp
