    A computer was something on TV,
    From a Science Fiction show of note,
    A window was something you hated to clean,
    And ram was the father of a goat.

    Meg was the name of my girlfriend,
    And gig was a job for the night,
    Now they all mean different things,
    And that really mega bytes.

    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 3-in. floppy,
    You hoped nobody found out.

    Compress was something you did to the garbage,
    Not something you did to a file,
    And if you unzipped anything in public,
    You'd be in jail for a while.

    Log on was adding wood to the 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.

    Some people will stick with pad and paper,
    And the memories in their head.
    Nobody's been killed in a computer crash,
    But when it happens you wish you were dead.
