SharePoint Permissions Sing-Along – Mamma Mia

Ok – time for some fun.  Seeing as everyone battles with permissions, I wrote a little song for you.  This is for everyone who has ever been locked out of their site.  Sing loudly along!!!! 🙂

I’ve been creating sites since I first began,
I did not realise it would come to an end.
Look at me nooooow, I’m locked out again;
I don’t know hoooow, but I suddenly lost control;
Now my users can’t do their poll.

Just one click and then I broke everything;
One more click and then the phone it did ring.

Oh woah woah

Mamma mia, locked you out again.
My my, how can I restore ya?
Mamma mia, does it work again?
Why why, should I just re-add ya?

Yeeesss I was over-eager;
Kneeeew it all, told the teacher;
Why why, did I ever think I’d know?
Mamma mia, now I really know,
Why why, training is the way to go.

SharePoint makes me so mad, I thought that I knew.
I can’t count all the times I was told what to do.
But when I tryyyy, it all on my own,
I don’t know hoooow, but my site is just like a stone,
You know I’ll be on that phone.

Just one click and then I broke everything;
One more click and then the phone it will ring.

Woah oh oh

Mamma mia, locked you out again.
My my, how can I restore ya?
Mamma mia, do I start again?
My my, just how much I missed here!

Yessss, AD was updated,
Buuuuut it is now outdated;
Why why, did I ever let it go?

Mamma mia, oh what did you say?
My my, heed V now or never!
Mamma mia, ain’t no easy day.
Try, try, you won’t be locked forever.

Mamma mia, site’s locked out again,
My my, how do I restore ya?

Mamma mia, please show me again,
Sigh sigh, how could I just doubt ya?

Yeeees, I have now restarted.
Nooo unique folders I did;
My my, this is such a tale of woe.

Mamma mia, now I really know,
Why why, planning is the way to go!!

(Abba rocks!) 🙂
