Uh oh, Oh!


I built a PC
Back in 1995

It was a Pentium
Felt like it was alive

With all the promise
Of what was windows 95

***

The days of dialup
They patiently expired

We ordered cable
And with Cat5 we rewired

We finally had all of the
Bandwidth we desired

Oh
Oh OH!

Then came the DOTCOMS!

Oh
Oh OH!

Blogs and web cams!

Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star

On my phone
And on my screen

Just log on
See what I mean

It’s all just one
Fantastic scene

****
****

Then came a shockwave
Of streaming video

Full episodes
Of the Daily Stewart Show

It’s where most Americans
Get their news you know

***

Now when I visit
My old friends and family

They have to brush off
The dust from their TV

They never watch it
Anymore you see

Oh
Oh OH!

World of Warcraft

Oh
Oh OH!

We’re File sharing!

Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star

On my phone
And on my screen

Just log on
See what I mean

It’s all just one
Fantastic scene

Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star

Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star

Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star

OBAMA

True change
And progress
Require vigilance
Perseverance
And vision

We have taken a step
Let us not believe
That the journey is anything
Other than just begun

Our leadership has transformed
From monochrome
To black and white
But I still dream
In color

America has written
An unprecedented
Remarkable
Hope filled page
In it’s history

And I am glad

But the page
And even the book
Are to me
Merely puzzle pieces
In a vast and beautiful mosaic

For my care
Has been given
To the library itself
