'The Entertainer'

There is a song by Billy Joel called 'The Entertainer'.  Every time I hear that song, it makes me think of the IT services business.  There are several things in that song that make me think that, but in particular, these verses below stand out.  If you are in IT services, see if it hits home to you:

But if I go cold,
I won't get sold.
I'll get put in the back
In the discount rack,
Like another can of beans.

Funny that the life of the IT guy in the services business seems to be just like that.
