    An application was for employment
    A program was a TV show
    A cursor used profanity
    A keyboard was a piano!

    Memory was something that you lost with age
    A CD was a bank account!
    And if you had a broken disk,
    It would hurt when you found out!

    Compress was something you did to garbage
    Not something you did to a file
    And if you unzipped anything in public
    You'd be in jail for awhile!

    Log on was adding wood to a fire
    Hard drive was a long trip on the road
    A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
    And a backup happened to your commode!

    Cut--you did with a pocket knife
    Paste you did with glue
    A web was a spider's home
    And a virus was the flu!

    I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
    And the memory in my head
    I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
    But when it happens they wish they were dead!
