Weirdly enough, having been around XML for so long, the last couple of days have marked my first exposure to actual DOM wrangling in code. This experience has driven many computer programmers to gloom, and even negative utterances. Not me! I even composed a song about it.

Sung to the tune of All You Need is Love, only with a sung chorus replacing the oom-pa-pa between the verse lines:

Verse:
All you need is nodes!
(Node node node node node)
All there is is nodes!
(Node node node node node)
All you need is nodes, nodes,
Nodes are all there is.

Bridge:
There’s nothing nodes can’t do that can be done
There’s nothing nodes can’t sing that can be sung
Nothing you can say but you can learn to code the nodes
It’s easy

Closing background vocals:
Nodes, nodes, nodes...
Nodes, nodes, nodes...
