I Am the Very Model of an Engineering Graduate by Gary Friedman
I am the very model of an engineering graduate;
I work with systems and with problems both of nature delicate;
Iíve studied properties of things in motion for the hell of it,
Regurgitating answers to insure that my degree Iíll get;
Iíve studied chemistry and learned the formulas of saturate
Solutions in normality in labs that are immaculate,
And programmed huge machines with large routines Iíve written just so that
Infrequently will I encounter problems that I canít attack;
Iím very good at systems both in digital and analogue;
Have studied great philosophers; can quote to you their dialogue;
Iíll work all day and never quit, that is if I can manage it;
I am the very model of an engineering graduate.
I use my Hewlett-Packard for the answers found in calculus,
And problems most encountered in numerical analysis;
It calculates proportions used in heart and lung dialysis;
Eventually Iíll work for them and move to where Corvallis is.
My interests are much greater than my friends and colleagues might believe;
Iíve worked with magic and performed illusions written to deceive;
In elementary schools Iíll work with children who do not receive
The help and dedication they require so they might achieve.
My years of work and study have allowed me to become involved
In engineering problems that have only partially been solved.
My grades, however, are the pits, and I donít really give a só,
Thatís why I am the model of an engineering graduate.
