Do the DAML rewrite of Roxy Music's "the Strand"

Do the DAML (most of the) words and music Bryan Ferry Roxy Music

Do the DAML

There’s a new sensation
A fabulous creation
A danceable solution
To teenage revolution
Do the DAML love
When you feel love
It’s the new way
That’s why we say
Be the Shamel using DAML

Do it on the tables
Quaglino’s place or Mabel’s
Slow and gentle
All styles served here
Stay clear of the scramble.
Do The DAML!

Tired of the tango
Fed up with fandango
Dance on moonbeams
Slide on rainbows
In furs or blue jeans
Unpick all the bramble,
Simplify with DAML!

Had your fill of Quadrilles
The Madison and cheap thrills
Bored with the Beguine
The samba isn’t your scene
They’re playing our tune
By the pale moon
We’re incognito
Don’t breathe the Amyl,
But we like the DAML.

Arabs at oasis
Eskimos and Chinese
If you feel blue
Look through Who’s Who
See La Goulue
And Nijinsky
Do the DAMLsky

Weary of the Waltz
And mashed potato schmaltz
Is a nice flower
It lasts forever
But it can’t beat DAML power
shake free of the trammel,
Do the DAML!


When are you gonna sing it?

This has reminded me of a guilty pleasure I had a while back (over a year ago) rewriting the lyrics for ACDC’s TNT :smiley:

Well here goes :slight_smile:

Multiparty workflows are no sweat
Just look onto my PC screen
Out for all who have internet
Just search it if you’re keen
Developers to the left of me
Managers to the right
It’s almost done
There’s just no strife
DAML just won the fight

’Cause I do D.L.T., I DAMLize
(D.L.T.) workflows at sight
(D.L.T.) I’m on token road
(D.L.T.) watch me code

Efficient, fast, and extremely clean
I’m a man with a plan
As the sandbox I run
Do you understand?
So lock transactions as if drinking water
Lock them with archive
Lock them at their core
DAML for life
It is here in town
No more messed code ’round

’Cause I do D.L.T., I DAMLize
(D.L.T.) workflows at sight
(D.L.T.) I’m on token road
(D.L.T.) watch me code


Video renditions, please! :guitar::studio_microphone:


I love It! DAML is poetry!
