The WordPress Song

WordPress Song – Devin Reams

Title: “It’s Called WordPress”


Welcome to my story bout my, CMS
It’s an awesome piece of software, it’s called WordPress
It manages my blog, it makes it look real nice
I installed in in 5 minutes, this things slicker than ice
All I had to do, was click on Next
Within seconds I was running, no room to get vexed

It’s called WordPress
It’s my CMS
It’s the best thing to hit the web since porn
The code is open, the source is free
It’s available for people, just like you and me

Once I picked my title and wrote a description,
I clicked on manage, I needed to do so me fixin’
I deleted Hello World, got rid of first comment, too
I clicked on View Site and all I saw was plain blue
I moved to Presentation, there were some nice looking themes
But none fit my style, none screamed Devin Reams


After I tweaked the code and played with CSS
I installed myself some plugins, I was real impressed
They organized my archives, they helped me tag, too
Then I installed a spam blocker not a single one came through
I added movie ratings and book ratings as well
Now when people visit me they’ll know that Crank was hell


So I made an about page, it got me a stalker
I was thrilled and excited, I wanted to to talk to her
She said she knew my hometown, what I looked like, too
It was mentioned that she loved guys with eyes that were blue
I didn’t mind the attention, decided it was time she had met me
Little did I know, some people named their boys Leslie


Now you might be thinking, he plays piano real good
I wish it were true, I sure wish I could
Instead I wrote the lyrics to this nerdy tune,
It was GarageBand provided ballad piano number 2

Chorus x2

    @jhay – I think bloggers are the only ones who can relate to this song. Hehe

    @K – Haha..yeah, I added "groove" into the antispam keywords. What a coincidence huh? is cool but as you said, it's limited. I also have an account there and use it as a temp blog. I still haven't made up my mind what to do with it.

    Hahaha jaypee, it gives me the groove (coincidentally, the antispam keyword tells it too).

    WordPress is the King. And I know free wordpress (the one I'm using) is good but it's limited.
