Momma's Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to Be Engineers

Engineering & Science Humor - RF CafeThese engineering and science tech-centric jokes, song parodies, anecdotes and assorted humor have been collected from friends and websites across the Internet. I check back occasionally for new fodder, but it seems all the old content is reappearing all over (like this is). The humor is light-hearted and clean and sometimes slightly assaultive to the easily-offended, so you are forewarned. It is all workplace-safe.

Humor #1, #2, #3


(Sung to the familiar Willy Nelson tune about Cowboys)

Mama don't let your babies grow up to be engineers

Don't let them fix radars for middle class bucks

Make 'em be cowboys and bikers and such.

Mama don't let your babies grow up to be engineers.

They'll work overtime and they'll never be home

Not even with someone they love

Engineers ain't easy to love and they're harder to hold

They'd rather give you Dolby Surround than diamonds or gold

Palm pilot on belt loop and high water pants

Every day goes the same way

And if you don't annoy him and he don't complain

He'll probably rewire the house.

(Repeat Chorus)

An engineer loves sweaty computer shows and new sci fi movies

Microprocessors and robots and socks that are white

Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do

Sometimes won't know how to take him

He's not weird he's just different and his pride won't let him

Ever be anything other than right
