Track Name: yayQuery
Come on, come on, everybody. Let's go!

yayQuery, yayQuery,
A whole lotta YAY and a Query too!
Between the parens
Are all of your friends and you.

yayQuery, yayQuery,
Shout it, "YAY!" like the queries do.
So come on, let's go
Cause we've got a show for you.
Track Name: jQuery
I tried to get you
Oh I tried, but I got it wrong.
So I wanna take you
To a place where we belong.

Where you got it easy
And it all starts a dollar sign.

And then you got it, you got it
You dot it, you mod it
You do anything you want it to do
Cause it's all for, all for you.

You've seen the signs.
You've felt the beats.
It's time to meet with jQuery.

You've kissed the lips
Of JavaScripts
It's time to quip with jQuery.
Track Name: Normalize
On a browser you can't fake it.
Would the things I didn't style break it?
Now I gotta C.S.Situate it.
Download Normalize!

On a reset, starting over.
But will it work in the browser older?
Had better luck with a four-leaf clover.
Download Normalize!

We're the best, and there's no denyin',
When the C.S.S starts flyin',
And it works on every client.
Download Normalize!

Now my code is finally thinnin'.
My deployment rims are spinnin'.
And I grin 'cause I can't stop winnin'!
Download Normalize!

Takes a second, used to take a while.
It's IE6 with the same Chrome style.
And it comes in just one file!
Download Normalize!

We're the best, and there's no denyin',
When the C.S.S starts flyin',
And it works on every client -
Download Normalize!

It will solve all the planet's problems!
It will heal even fatal wounds!
Maybe not... but you still should use it!
Download Normalize!

We're the best, and there's no denyin',
When the C.S.S starts flyin',
And it works on every client!
Download Normalize!
Track Name: Hiddenhancements
They're Hiddenhancements.
They're little tiny things you never thought you'd see.
Track Name: IE6
Prepare a two-thousand experience,
The latest we're offered and the best.
You load up your browser it feels so quick,
Cause finally everything is fixed

In IE6.

So much is better, so much is wrong,
Loadin' transparent 8-bits all night long.
No cluttering tabs or a bookmark bar,
and for all your desires click the star

In IE6.

You can load up an ajax and asyncronize:
(your applications till they finally break)
(anything on the local domain)
(your self)
(everything you know)

you can fix any layout issue with:
(an asterix sign before CSS)
(catch for javascript)
(negative-margin overflow)
(zoom)

After so many HTTP hits
the browser unexpectedly quits.

What was the problem? I don't even know.
Didn't have any javascript.
Just some c.s.s h.t.m.l oh wait I know that breaks

IE6.
The best of IE6.
It messed up IE6.
The death of IE6.
Track Name: Modernizr
The shackles of my own age
are the battle from my home page.
And so many foes, some new, some old,
their differences enrage!

A beast made of fire, a fox, they conspire;
an army of angry chrome.
A opera of sorts, and IE swords,
and I was on my own.

But now I know what to do,
Thank the Modernizr.
Features all mine to choose,
Thank the Modernizr.

And my eyes are opened wide
with you leading my side.
And so much to hash, but in a flash
detections do confide.

It's set to detect all that I have let,
but its limits have no end.
An arrow sharp to the browsers heart,
and the beast is now my friend.

And now we know what to do,
Thank the Modernizr.
Features all mine to choose,
Thank the Modernizr.
Frustration, that's what you lose,
Thank the Modernizr.
Perfection's waiting for you,
Thank the Modernizr.
And its easy to test what is true,
Thank the Modernizr.
And now you know just what to do,
Thank the Modernizr.
Track Name: yayQuery Beginner's Corner
It's the yayQuery beginner's corner.
Where everything is new!

It's the yayQuery beginner's corner.
I'm a newbie, what are you?
Track Name: Plugin of the Week
It's the plugin of the week, and it's really, really great.
It's the plugin of the week.

It's the plugin of the week, and it's really, really great.
It's the plugin of the week.

WAAAAAAAAA!
Track Name: Writing a Program
So you think you wrote a program, but you don't even know.
And you thought you made a GIT of it, but where did it go?
Were you in a CSSiesta when you wrote the last line?
Did you tweet, or are you sure if it is even online?

Oh you're staying up to late
But you've got to stay awake
Writing a program.

And you swear you got the idea when the Woot Off began.
Like a red eye, but you had to, so you made it a plan.
And you'd know glory if another person saw what you've made.
Cause it's the greatest thing you've written and you'll never get paid.

Oh you're staying up to late
But you've got to stay awake
Writing a program.

Are these visions of the future, or a well beaten path?
Are these binary museries the kind that will last?
Can a thing you're writing really make the world a bit more?
Though we know you love attention, it's not all that it's for.

Oh you're staying up to late
But you've got to stay awake
Writing a program.

Track Name: You're a Unicorn
Have you ever dreamed the sight
Of being made of light?
Sparkling mane of white
Oh what's your dream tonight?

You dreamed you're a unicorn.
You dreamed you're a unicorn, unicorn!
Right now you're a unicorn.
You dreamed you're a unicorn, unicorn!

Soft and noble hair
Flying through the air.
Tail of lion's pride
and you can take a ride!

And all at once you float
By your beard of billy goat.
You're prancing, cloven hooves
And you're making rainbows move!

(You're a Unicorn!) You dreamed you're a unicorn (a unicorn?).
You dreamed you're a unicorn, unicorn! (Yea)
Right now you're a unicorn (and you'll never get old).
You dreamed you're a unicorn, unicorn
Right now you're a unicorn (and your heart is gold).
You dreamed you're a unicorn, unicorn.

And you'll walk along the moon
Making geeks and maidens swoon!
Awesome mighty ultra steed
Beast of love we'll always need!
You've got flowers in your hair
You're like purple that a man can wear!
And you're splendor
Bursting bubbles
Sparkles happy
And you're loving!

You're a Unicorn.
Track Name: Bye Bye Hacker
You're a hacker but you're in my dreams
You gotta take your risk changes everything

You're a hacker on a twenty eight eight
Gotta PCI and a refresh rate.

So you hacker you're not on your own
We can hack the planet from a spinning phone

Hacker Hacker triple RAM-ify
And I tera-tore down singing giga-bye-bye hacker

Bye bye hacker
Track Name: Script Boy
Script boy and his script girl;
They write with dollar signs,
And they read between the lines.

Oh script girl, she'll always love her boy;
Setting him free, they'll be as one,
Once a compile, now a run.

Smitten with loads and lines of love -
Written in script from up above.

Script boy find your script girl;
She's reality,
But you can meet on IRC.

Oh script girl, you've got to find your boy;
For every girl deserves a knight,
Shining in blue florescent light.

Smitten with loads and lines of love -
Written in script from up above.

Oh my eyes they can't deceive,
Separate partitions interweaved;
And he'll know that she's for him,
Truer than true in Boolean.

Script boy and his script girl;
Off to a wife, a lucky guy,
Two beating hearts and one wifi.

Smitten with loads and lines of love -
Written in script from up above.
Track Name: Goodby(t)es
yayQuery, yayQuery
We're sorry to tell you it's time to go.

We hope you had fun
Cause now we are done with our show.

yayQuery, yayQuery
One more time, "YAY" till we meet again.

So long from our Node.
It's back to our code till then.
