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 1/2 inch floppy You hoped nobody 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 a while! 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!
