There’s a bug in my code,
Dear Liza, dear Liza,
There’s a bug in my code,
Dear Liza, a bug.

So fix it,
Dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry.
So fix it, dear Henry, dear Henry.
Fix it.

Oh, how shall I fix it,
Dear Liza, dear Liza?
Oh, how shall I fix it, dear Liza?
Oh, how?

What’s the error?
Dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry.
What’s the error? Dear Henry, dear Henry.
The error?

How do I tell?
Dear Liza, dear Liza,
How do I tell? Dear Liza
Oh, how?

Check the logs
Dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Check in the logs, dear Henry, dear Henry.
Check them!

Where are they at,
Dear Liza, dear Liza?
Where are they at, dear Liza,
Oh, where?

Where does the app write them,
Dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
Where does the app write them, dear Henry, dear Henry.
Oh, Where?

Found it!
Dear Liza, dear Liza,
I found it, Dear Liza
It’s found!

What does it say,
Dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry
What does it say, dear Henry, dear Henry.
Read it!

I can’t understand it,
Dear Liza, dear Liza.
I can’t understand it, Dear Liza.
It’s confusing.

Show me,
Dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry.
Show me, dear Henry, dear Henry.
Show me.

Here you go,
Dear Liza, dear Liza,
Here you go, dear Liza,
Take a look.

It says “incorrect password”,
Dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry.
It says “incorrect password”, dear Henry, dear Henry.
Change it.

It’s still not working,
Dear Liza, dear Liza.
It’s still not working, Dear Liza.
It’s broke.

What’s wrong?
Dear Henry, dear Henry, dear Henry?
What’s wrong, dear Henry, dear Henry?
What’s wrong?

There’s a bug in my code,
Dear Liza, dear Liza,
There’s a bug in my code,
Dear Liza, a bug.
