Speaking as a Technical Writer who's been writing manuals longer than you've owned computers (23 years): What a GREAT song! I especially liked the lines: "It's supposed to help you with your new machine Which I've never seen" Which happens in about half the projects I've worked on--"It'll work sort of like this--so write the manual based on that." Great song, and well-executed. - FrostedDonut
  • Parody of "Paperback Writer" by The Beatles. (CZW Ref Fan Steven)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Technical writer, technical writer...

    Dear PC owner, try and read my book
    About your new computer, better take a look
    It's based on schematics from an engineer
    But it's still unclear
    'Cause I'm an apathetic technical writer
    Technical writer

    It's confusing, yeah, that's my revenge, you see
    'Cause I majored in art history
    And after sending out resumes far and wide
    I find I'm qualified
    To be an entry-level technical writer
    Technical writer

    Technical writer, technical writer...

    Welcome... File done... You've got mail... Goodbye

    It's a thousand pages, give or take a few
    And not a word will mean a thing to you
    It's supposed to help you with your new machine
    Which I've never seen
    That doesn't matter to a technical writer
    Technical writer

    If you're really flustered, you can call me up
    Dial 1-900-I-don't-give-a-f**k
    Five bucks a minute for consulting me
    That's the standard fee
    'Cause I don't want to be a technical writer
    Technical writer

    Technical writer, technical writer...

    Abort, retry, ignore... Abort, retry, ignore...
    Segmentation fault. Core dumped.

    Technical writer, technical writer...
    Technical writer, technical writer...
    Technical writer, technical writer...

    I am not a geek!
    Technical writer, technical writer...
