    During my wilderness years I did very little composing or playing... however sometimes I would play around with a song, and here, inspired by life as a programmer at the 3DO company, I came up with this variant on "Spencer the Rover".

    ---
    This tune was composed by Spencer the Coder
    As valiant an engineer as ever left home
    He had been much producerd which caused great confusion
    And that was the reason he never went home

    In the bay near San Francisco he'd been on a project
    When weary of working he sat down to rest
    By the foot of yon stairwell lies a snack vending machine
    When he had the change it all went well

    With the night fast approaching to his desk he resorted
    With sleeping bag and pillow his bed for to make
    But he dreamt of outside lamenting and crying
    "Go back to your family and coding forsake"

    'Twas the fifth day of Noverember a reason to remember
    When first he arrived home to his family and friends
    They did stand so astounded, suprised and dumbfounded
    To see such a stranger once more in their sight

    And his children they come around him with their pritle-pratlin stories
    With their pritle-pratlin stories to drive care away
    And he's as happy as those with thousands of worthless shares
    Contented he'll remain and not ramble away

    This tune was composed by Spencer the Coder
    As valiant an engineer as ever left home
    He had been much producerd which caused great confusion
    And that was the reason he never went home Show less
