Dirty Data
Bill Shipper

You sent me your file, said you were all through
You queried your database, and had nothing left to do
Well I tried to parse it baby, but you never cleaned it up
With delimiters past the limit
The whole thing was corrupt

You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty, dirty data
Well I ain’t gonna take it from you!

It was in the wrong format, it had all the wrong terms
There were 5 malicious viruses: 3 trojans and 2 worms
The numbers were all text and the text was all number
The macro went wacko and the dummy field was even dumber

You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty, dirty data
Well I ain’t gonna take it from you!

You can download a new driver or upload to your own blog
Be nice and zip up your files or be a broadband hog
Turn your software into hardware with an 8 gig USB
But I really get turned on when you talk dirty data to me!

You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty, dirty data
Well I ain’t gonna take it from you!

You stated your assumptions, but what makes you think that’s proof
I caught all your outliers, that’s the correlated truth
You see, baby, sometimes the real values, just fall somewhere in between
You can call me average but I call you mean

You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty, dirty data
But I ain’t gonna take it from you!

1 and 1 is 2, 2 and 2 is 4
Don’t give me your numbers, I don’t want ‘em anymore.
4 and 4 is 8, 8 times 8 plus 6 squared minus 24 divided by 7.6 is ten
In case you didn’t hear it I’m gonna sing it once again,

You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty data
You gave me dirty, dirty data
And I ain’t gonna take it from you!
