Today’s Product Management Pop Song: ‘The Product Manager Is A Dog’

666x373-productManagerDog

I was listening to a Minecraft parody of a Katy Perry song the other day, and that got me thinking about songs about product management. While I work on my own product management parody song (and, yes, I am working on one) I wanted to share a product management-related song from China, forwarded to me by zoranrilak.

Be warned: “The Product Manager Is A Dog” features a catchy melody, an odd music video, and lyrics that are comically desperate.

Watch the music video on youku.com.

If you’ve ever been frustrated as a PM, you may find yourself singing along like the broken-hearted sing along to sad songs on the radio. Sad pop songs, they say so much.

Here is an English translation of “The Product Manager Is A Dog”, provided by one of zoranrilak’s colleagues:

I get to sleep later than a cat and get up earlier than the rooster
Weapon is just my brain and energy
PRD is on my left hand and product draft is on my right hand
What you want? I’m struggling all day long

Emails push me push me push me
Product development is tired tired tired
You guys are always right right right
I am the product dog, I want to say it out

Product manager is a dog
Oh GO GO GO oh dog dog dog, go go go

OH NO only “One Piece” is left in your life
Prettiest women are just in your dreams

Product manager is a dog
oh GO GO GO oh dog dog dog, go go go

If my product make you happy, please pat my head
If my product make you happy, let’s clap our hands

He wants me to add a link and you want me to add a button
70, 90, requirements form 70’s people but still not enough for 90’s
Cannot make everybody happy with it, I almost lost my mind
Don’t want to give your more examples, don’t make me roar

Boss says I’m too stupid
Documents always need more revisions
Customer service people always yell at me
I am product manager and I am done

Thoughts?

Do parts of this song resonate with you?

Do you have a favorite product management-related song?

  1. Love it! Planning to use this line next week in the office: “Don’t want to give your more examples, don’t make me roar”
