I still haven’t found what I’m looking for!

Here’s are the lyrics to the song I delivered (I won’t describe it quite as singing!) at Monday’s in-service open mic event. Next year, if there is a next year, Mary Backus has promised to sing while I strum the guitar.

I am grateful that nobody was taping!

What I’m Looking For
(apologies to U2)

I searched Google, asked Mr. Jeeves
Queried About, Said Pretty Please
Said Pretty Please, said pretty please
And I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

I walked the stacks, the catalog
Keyworded WorldCat, and yet after all
Yet after all, yet after all
I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

I called the HelpDesk and Reference
Scoured my hard drive, tried to make sense
Oh I want to retrieve
I want to retrieve it!
And I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

We pick the tools and the taxonomies
Index our data as we please, as we please
Yet we still haven’t found what we’re looking for
