We All Met in a Project Called C3

(sing to the tune of Yellow Submarine)

Oh the project called C3
Was cancelled in-explicablee
Kent and Ron
Claimed victory
But at Chrysler
They didn't quite see
It was cancelled inexplicably
Inexplicably, inexplicably
It was cancelled inexplicably
Inexplicably, inexplicably


Yagni

(sing to the tune of Let It Be)

If you think of building architecture
But you're feeling lazy
You can just skip it
Yagni

If you think you might need infrastructure
You don't have to worry
Go ahead and skip it
Yagni

Yagni
Yagni
Yagni
Yagni

Don't worry 'bout tomorrow
Yagni
You aren't gonna need it
Yagni


Document

(sing to the tune of Can't Buy Me Love)

You say you want me to document
Well I'll tell you hell no
It's a waste of time to document
I'm not afraid to tell you so
Why the hell would I want to document
When I could be writing code
Just writing code
Cause its really all I know
No documents
No no no, no
