What, nobody likes Paul Simon ?



#2

to the tune of Paul Simon "Kodachrome"

** ** ** ** ** ** **


(roll,roll,roll, THUNK ) (sound of quarter being put into jukebox)

Selection "34-C"

Record comes up, "THUD" needle hits record....

(a few scratches & pops)

....................

When I think of all the crap I learned in high school....

its a wonder I can think at all,

it werent for my trusty red LED calculator,

math class wouldn't have done me no good at all.

RED LED'''''s, give me them bright red digits

give me them 7 bright segments,

make me think every calculation is a sunny day,

oh yeah,

I got an HP 34C

I love to do caaalculations

but Carly gonna take my 34C away.

(chorus)

Carly don't take my 34C

Carly don't take my 34C

Carly don't take my 34C away

Carly she took my 34C

Carly she took my 34C

Carly she took my 34C away .....

We liked your song---and Glynn's song---


we were just laughing too hard to type straight!

#4

Excellent - as Bill said took a while to recover from the fits of laughter. Rock on!


#5

Sung to the tune of "Take me Home Country Roads".

** ** ** ** ** ** **

(roll,roll,roll, THUNK ) (sound of quarter being put into jukebox)

Selection "25-C"

Record comes up, "THUD" needle hits record....

(a few scratches & pops)

....................

........... Almost Heaven, nineteen seventy-six,

Hewlett Packard Calculators, Model 25C .....

Things they worked then, they worked properly,

Had an owner's manual, and they'd sell accessories.

(Chorus)

Hewlett Packard, take me home,

to designs, that were strong .....

TWENTY FIVE CCCCCCCC, sensible people

Dont say Kinpo, Hewlett Packard .

All my memories, it did impress your friends,

and if you got a nice one, it will impress 'em yet again.

A dark backdrop, red LED's bright as the sky,

Misty smell of new stuff, a teardrop in my eye .

(Chorus)

Hewlett Packard, take me back,

to designs, that were strong .....

TWENTY FIVE CCCCCCCC, no pulldown menuuuus

Take me back, Hewlett Packard .


I smell some MBA's now, they're like tent caterpillars,

chawin' up our dreams and our money like green leaves,

Driving down the road I get a feeling

like I want to run them over nowwwwwww (over nowww........)

(Chorus)

Hewlett Packard, take me back,

to designs, that were strong .....

TWENTY FIVE CCCCCCCC, small and heavyyyy

Take me back, Hewlett Packard .

*()&)^&)&)*&)*&)(*&*&^&^%(^%(

&*)*&^*&^(*&( *** GLUNK ***

needle returns to side, record drops back out of view....

The jukebox, full of sound, fun, and intrigue, falls silent... until next time.
