Kibana ooh na-na — A Havana Parody

by Vaishnavi Srinivasan 8 months ago in performance poetry

Kibana ooh na-na (ay)

ELK stack and Havana (From Nick Hewings and Bekir Donmez in Unsplash)

Original:

Havana, ooh na-na (ayy)

Half of my heart is in Havana, ooh na-na (ayy, ayy)

He took me back to East Atlanta, na-na-na, ah

Oh, but my heart is in Havana (ayy)

There's somethin' 'bout his manners (uh-huh)

Havana, ooh-na-na (uh)

Parody:

Kibana, ooh na-na (ayy)

You are the K in ELK, Kibana ooh na-na (ayy, ayy)

We query Elastic through you, oh na-na-na, ah

All day I work with you Kibana (ayy)

This song is ‘bout you and your pals (uh-huh)

Kibana, ooh na-na (uh)

Original:

He didn't walk up with that "how you doin'?" (uh)

(When he came in the room)

He said there's a lot of girls I can do with (uh)

(But I can't without you)

I knew him forever in a minute (hey)

(That summer night in June)

And papa says he got malo in him (uh)

He got me feelin' like...

Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (ayy)

I knew it when I met him (ayy), I loved him when I left him

Got me feelin' like, ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

And then I had to tell him, I had to go

Oh-na-na-na-na-na (woo)

Parody:

I just wanted to forward the logs (uh)

(To ElasticSearch)

One of your pals Filebeat helped with that (uh)

(To the relevant index)

I’m searching forever and no results (hey)

(What’s wrong with my query?)

But then I refreshed the index patterns (uh)

And it got me feeling like...

Ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh (ayy)

At last, I got my results (ayy), I know I can rely on you

Got me feelin' like, ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

But I still need to fix the prod bug, I had to go

Oh-na-na-na-na-na (woo)

--------

Original:

Havana, ooh na-na (ayy, ayy)

Half of my heart is in Havana, ooh na-na (ayy, ayy)

He took me back to East Atlanta, na-na-na (uh huh)

Oh, but my heart is in Havana (ayy)

My heart is in Havana (ayy)

Havana, ooh-na-na

Parody:

Kibana, ooh na-na (ayy, ayy)

You are the K in ELK, Kibana ooh na-na (ayy, ayy)

We query Elastic through you, oh na na na (uh huh)

All day I work with you Kibana (ayy)

I work with you Kibana (ayy)

Kibana, ooh na-na

Original:

Jeffery, just graduated, fresh on campus, mmm

Fresh out East Atlanta with no manners, damn (fresh out East Atlanta)

Bump on her bumper like a traffic jam

Hey, I was quick to pay that girl like Uncle Sam (here you go, ayy)

Back it on me (back it up)

Shawty cravin' on me, get to eatin' on me (on me)

She waited on me (then what?)

Shawty cakin' on me, got the bacon on me (wait up)

This is history in the makin', on me (on me)

Point blank, close range, that B

If it cost a million, that's me (that's me)

I was gettin' mula, baby

Parody:

Logstash, you input, filter and output data

You perform well with your friend Kafka (Best friend Kafka)

Also, you got Beat to offload some data

Hey, I’ll configure you and test once in beta (here you go, ayy)

ELK says stack it on me,

Techie cravin’ on me, get to diggin’ on me (on me)

She analysed on me (then what?)

Fixed the bug and went home early coz of me (wait up)

This is history in the makin’, on me (on me)

I, ELK, rescued again, that be

It saved a million coz of me (coz of me)

Them techies love me, man they feel me

Author's Note:

Hey there. If you came to this point, I'm grateful that you've survived the cringe-worthy lyrics :) And for that, I tip my hat.

I recently learned about the ELK stack and the beats (Filebeat). Somehow, instead of Havana, I kept murmuring Kibana, ooh na na. Which was funny and cringey. Made my husband laugh with that one. I may try a similar tech parody song in the future. So, prepare for what's coming. :)

If you like what you read, feel free to hit the heart or tip. If you didn't like what you read, explore my other stories. I'm sure you'll come across a non-cringeworthy article :) Once again, thanks for stopping by.
