The Seilevel 2008 Holiday Software Requirements Medley

It seems that we have an official tradition here at Seilevel.
Every year, we like to spread a little SeiCheer with our medley of holiday requirements songs.
If you enjoy these, you can go back to see the 2007 songs and 2006 songs.

Expert SME is Comin’ To Town
You better watch out
You better ask why
Better not tout
He’s breaking the tie
Expert SME is coming to town

Eliciting a list
Reviewing it twice;
Gonna decide which scope to slice
Expert SME is coming to town

He sees you when you’re typing
He knows when you are late
He knows if the spec’s good or bad
At least try to hit the date!

O! You better watch out!
You better ask why
Better not tout
He’s breaking the tie

Expert SME is coming to town

Expert SME is coming to town

Requirement Drummer BA
Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum

To facilitate for the SME, pa rum pum pum pum,

So to honor SME, pa rum pum pum pum,

When we’re done.
Newly found SME, pa rum pum pum pum
I am here for you too, pa rum pum pum pum
You have some scope to add, pa rum pum pum pum
That’s fit to give to dev, pa rum pum pum pum,

rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,

You will smile at us, pa rum pum pum pum,
When we’re done.

Last Christmas

Last Christmas, I gave you my scope
But the very next day, you cut it away
This year, to save me from tears
I’ll give it to a new BA

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance, prototypes catch my eye
Tell me BA, do you recognize the GUI?
Well it’s been a year, agile’s working for me
I wrote it up and sent it

With a note saying “high priority”, I meant it
Now I know what a fool I’ve been
But if you facilitated now I know you’d fool me again
Last Christmas, I gave you my scope
But the very next day, you cut it away
This year, to save me from tears

I’ll give it to a new BA

Oooh. Oooh BA

A crowded room, SCRUM team’s tired eyes
I’m hiding from you and the process advice
My BA, I thought you were someone to rely on
Me? I guess I was a user to deny one
A face of a coder with a fire in his heart
Ready to build, but you tore it apart

Oooh Oooh

Now I’ve found agile BAs, you’ll never fool me again

Product Bells
Jingle bells, product bells
Whistles all the way
Oh, what fun it is to plan
For a product launch today

Dashing through the code
With a one man team BA
Thru the halls we go
Writing all the way

Bells on testers ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to scope and sing
A requirements song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, product bells

Whistles all the way
Oh, what fun it is to plan
For a product launch today
