Wenn die Beatles im Nebenberuf Systemadministratoren gewesen wären, wäre der Text zu „Yesterday“ wohl ungefähr so ausgefallen:
All those backups seemed a waste of pay.
Now my source files have all gone away.
Oh I believe in yesterday.
There’s not half the files there used to be,
And there’s a milestone hanging over me.
The system crashed so suddenly.
I pushed something wrong
What it was I could not say.
Now all my data’s gone
and I long for yesterday-ay-ay-ay.
The need for back-ups seemed so far away.
I knew my data was all here to stay,
Now I believe in yesterday.
