Web Guru

♫ “I wanna be a billionaire…” ♫ Yeah, it’s not a bad song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aRor905cCw), but a billionaire? Is that all? I wanna be something a bit more… special.

Lyrics

I wanna be a web guru,
so frickin’ much.
Someone even Zeldman couldn’t touch.

I wanna be on the cover of
Wired magazine,
smiling next to Sir Tim Berners Lee.

Oh every time I’d go online,
I’d fix another site’s design.
Another day, another interview.
Oh what, what I wouldn’t do,
to be a web guru.
To be a web guru.

Yeah, I would have a show like Diggnation, be a web sensation.
All the geeky girls could not resist the temptation.
Every newspaper would have a photo with my face on,
but not on the front page – in the technology section.

And I’d tell everybody how to make a website.
Using open standards is the only way to get it right.
And people would smile as I do my thing.
I’d give them something special, yeah, I’d start to sing!

Oh, every time I’d go online,
I’d fix another broken site.
Another day, another interview.
Oh what, what I wouldn’t do,
to be a web guru.
To be a web guru.

I wanna be a web guru,
so frickin’ much.
