Playing Piano with SOAP Messages

I just finished seeing Don Box and Chris Anderson's MSDN TV Special Holiday Episode III - Connecting People, Programs and Devices Using WinFX which gave the term CGI Joe completely new meanings.

code they told me
pa-rum-pu-pum-pum

a new platform to use
pa-rum-pu-pum-pum

the finest apps we'll bring
pa-rum-pu-pum-pum rum-pu-pum-pum rum-pu-pum-pum

simple code                    (code they told me)
can it be                          (pa-rum-pu-pum-pum)
(the) xaml life                  (a new platform to use)

for my code                   (a new platform to use)
and your code too         (pa-rum-pu-pum-pum)

see the day of glory        (the finest apps we'll bring, pa-rum-pu-pum-pum)
see the day when            (code they told me) 
programs connect via soap          
via x-m-l                        (pa-rum-pu-pum-pum rum-pu-pum-pum)

simple code                   (a new platform to use, pa rum pum pum pum)
