As some day it may happen that a victim must be found,
I've got a little list, I've got a little list
Of cartography offenders who might well be underground,
And who never would be missed, they never would be missed!
There's abbreviators, Google tracers, Landuse gluing swine,
The guy who can't survey his patch, but has to balls up mine
There's Potlatch users, tag abusers, mappers with long hair,
Or those who draw one road and leave stray nodes just everywhere,
And wiki wankers, newbies, prankers, road geek fantasists
They'd none of them be missed, they'd none of them be missed


CHORUS: He's got them on the list, He's got them on the list
And they'll none of them be missed, They'll none of them be missed.


There's those who think that “football” maps to their own favourite sort,
We know that they exist, I've got them on the list!
Or the Germans who on motor-only-trunk roads will insist
They never would be missed, They never would be missed!
The fans of miles and poles and perches, furlongs, yards and stones,
We used to tag just numbers, now the parser fairly groans,
And Mappers who spend half their life on their own local map
Then go publicly bananas when it ends up in some app
It's in the bloody licence, did they not pick up the gist?
So they're going on the list, they'd none of them be missed


CHORUS: He's got them on the list, He's got them on the list
And they'll none of them be missed, They'll none of them be missed.


The ones who never map, but oh to moan they can't resist
They’re on the mailing list, and also on my list!
And editors that let you draw self-overlapping roads
They'd none of 'em be missed, They'd none of 'em be missed.
Bad-spelling semicolon users, renderer tagging fools,
The ergonomics officer for our infernal tools,
There's project founders who insist on still having their say
Oh dear, the guy that thought it up might lead us quite astray,
There's really nothing for it if he's going to persist,
You reckon he'd be missed?… I'll put him on the list


CHORUS: You may put them on the list, You may put them on the list
And they'll none of them be missed, they'll none of them be missed!
