I knew a man Mike Crawford and he'd code for you on a worn-out Mac

Had a bag with old tech books a towel and, and an old iPad

He'd code so hard, code so hard, so no bug would get away

Mr. Mike Crawford, Mr. Mike Crawford, code.

I met him in a cell in Portland Oregon, I was Occupied

He looked to be the face of aged geekiness as he pointed out

There was so much bad code, so much bad code, and so seldom it was fixed

Mr. Mike Crawford, Mr. Mike Crawford, code.

He spoke of life and frogs and ignorant motherfuckers all which vexed him so

And geometric visions of some lost domain which he'd SEO'd, it had been so cool

He let go a sigh, he let go a sigh, and then sadly shook his head

Mr. Mike Crawford, Mr. Mike Crawford, code, yeah code.

He coded for the startups and the Fortune boys throughout the West

He spoke with rage of borkers who had fixed the stage, and jobs were scarce

Because nobody cared, nobody really cared, whether the damn code worked or not

Mr. Mike Crawford, Mr. Mike Crawford, code.

He said, "I code at coffee shops with free wifi, for free half-and-half.

But lots of the time I spend behind these bars because I rage a bit."

He took his meds, yes he took his meds, I heard a phone call ask please

Mr. Mike Crawford, Mr. Mike Crawford, code, code, Mr. Mike Crawford, please code.
