Mardi Gras Metadata Mambo

Many of you may know Lynda Wayne ‘The Duck Lady’.

Lynda was bored and penned a nerdy metadata version of the Iko – Iko song titled ISO – ISO to celebrate the new metadata standard.

Here is the tune just in case it has been too long and Lynda’s original lyrics below.

My Edith told your Jaci

Girl you ain’t no liar

This standard’s full of brand new stuff

That sets the bar much higher

 

Talkin’ bout, hey now

Hey now

ISO – ISO someday

Learning them codes and UML

Learning them for my pay

 

Look at my bookcase, filled with versions

Of each and every standard

Labeled FCD and DIS

Until every tag’s been bantered

 

Talkin’ bout, hey now

Hey now

ISO – ISO someday

Learning them codes and UML

Learning them for my pay

 

My Jennifer told your Habermann

It ain’t no big quagmire

Sure hope we can make the change

Before we both retire

 

Talkin’ bout, hey now

Hey now

ISO – ISO someday

Learning them codes and UML

Learning them for my pay

 

Our man Danko has the task

ISO-ISO someday

Presenting to anyone that asks

How the standards play

 

Talking bout, hey now

Hey now

Danko Danko  someday

Learning them codes and UML

Learning them for my pay

 

My agency told your agency

It’s time to get on board

The ISO train is pulling out

And will not be ignored

 

Talking bout, hey now

Hey now

ISO – ISO someday

Learning them codes and UML

Learning them for my pay

 

We’re all heading to ISO town

ISO-ISO someday

Go to the wiki and mess around

Push them ISO blues away
