The Model-Based Testing Theme Song
© 1999, Harry Robinson
(to the tune of “I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing”)

Pete Seeger once said that any good movement needs a theme song, so (with apologies to all) here is my submission for the model-based testing theme song, complete with harmony section:

I’d like to teach the world to model
Increase code quality
I’d like to find bugs in the spec
And keep my weekends free
(“… see my family…” )

I’d like to teach the world to model
And teach monkeys to test
So they can find the bugs at night
While I’m home getting rest
( “…that sounds good to me…” )

I’d like to teach the world to model
And teach monkeys to think
So they could find bugs early on
And not just on the brink
(“ … of delivery… “)

I’d like to teach the world to model
For perfect quality
I’d like to automate their tests
And ship stuff defect-free
( “ … that’s how it should be …” )
