GRC Tuesdays: The Famous GRC Christmas Carol version 2021

Cambridge Dictionary defines “tradition” as “a belief, principle, or way of acting that people in a particular society or group have continued to follow for a long time, or all of these beliefs, etc. in a particular society or group”.

If you consider, as I do, that contributors and readers of these #GRCTuesdays blog posts form a “group” and that 5 years is a “long time”, then there’s no two ways about it: the GRC Tuesdays Christmas Carols is a “tradition”. And as such, here’s the latest Opus.

In case you missed the previous blogs in this tradition, then, in a nutshell, these are GRC-inspired Christmas Carol parodies.

In the very first version back in 2016, we had even recorded the SAP team singing. By popular demand, we will refrain from doing so ever again in the future!

This year, the GRC Christmas Carol will (try to) follow the music of Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town. If you don’t know or can’t recall it, then you can find a version on YouTube.

 

You better watch out, you better comply

Better not hide, I’m telling you why

Auditors are coming to town

 

They’re here to assist, and are quite nice

Not to point out or be the police

Auditors are coming to town

 

They know that you are working

Don’t hope t’find a mistake

They just want to check that it’s all good

So be helpful for your sake!

 

Oh, you better watch out, you better comply

Better not hide, I’m telling you why

Auditors are coming to town

 

 

They know when you are struggling

And have a big headache

So instead of hiding und’ the hood

Why not ask for their good take?

 

Oh, you better watch out, you better comply

Better not hide, I’m telling you why

Auditors are coming to town

 

You better watch out, you better comply

Better not hide, I’m telling you why

Auditors are coming to town

 

It’s a wrap for yet another year of #GRCTuesdays blog series!

      Hello. This is Seoul.
      Reading "GRC Tusesday" daily with my colleagues is my first mission in 2022.
      Reading this blog today makes me think that I was really good at making such a decision, and I laughed at the pleasant article.
      Happy New Year!!
