Syntactician (song)

These are the lyrics of a song I wrote. It is meant to be sung to the music of "Highwayman" (sung by Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash):

I was syntactician
amongst the parse trees I did ride
with pen and paper by my side
many a language lost her secrets to my trade
many a prescriptivist shed his lifeblood on my blade
the bastards reviewed me in the spring of 2005
but I am still alive.
