When the shades of night have fallen And the world in darkness lies They awake from fitful slumber And they open bleary eyes When computers run their fastest By the console's lurid light Comes the hacker's hour of glory Hackers do it every night.
So here's to the midnight hackers And the deeds they do by night May all their bugs be easy And may all their code be tight May their hardware run like lightning May it stay up through the night Hackers do it with computers And they do it every night.
No higher level language Our intentions can express So with dirty old machine code Our attentions we will press If we must we'll try for hours Getting every statement right In our lowest level programs Hackers do it byte by byte.
Now microcode is nasty But you frequently will find It's the only thing computers have To motivate their mind. It takes sleazy tricks and pure brute force To get it all to fit So for heavy microcoding Hackers do it bit by bit.
