Oh my Darling UDP

Listen: File:Oh my Darling UDP.ogg (Should work in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox)

Based off of and sung to the tune of "Oh my Darling Clementine", a traditional folk song.

In a network, on a router, forwarding, so quickly
Lived a stack of TCP/IP and its cousin UDP.

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling UDP.
You were lost and gone forever, dreadful sorry, UDP.

Light she was and like a fairy and its port was 53
Domain names into IPs, DNS was for UDP

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling UDP.
You were lost while in a router, dreadful sorry, UDP.

Drove the data to the server, every time it went online
But the buffers filled up quickly, dropping packets one by one

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling UDP.
You were lost and gone forever, dreadful sorry, UDP.

Retransmission wasn't a thing, so it never knew the news
But it was no TCP, so it had nothing to lose

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling UDP.
You were lost while in a router, dreadful sorry, UDP.

How I missed her, how I missed her, how I missed my UDP,
Till I realized no reply, but I was all on my own

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling UDP.
You were lost and gone forever, dreadful sorry, UDP.
