Jefferson Airplane Meets Internal Audit

Comments Views

A song that needs no introduction, but definitely needs an explanation.

And I don’t have one.

One test shows the error’s large
And one test shows it's small
And the test the AIC gives you
Won’t prove anything at all
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing data
And you’re falling in a hole
Tell ‘em a cigar-smoking CEO
Has given you the call
Call Alice
When she was just small

When men in the boardroom
Get up and tell you where to go
And you’ve just had a planning meeting
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the findings seem all backwards
And the VP wants their heads
Remember what the standards said;
"Value add
Value add”
