hear it!

Wired Lullaby
Tune: The Mockingbird Song

Hush little baby don't you fret
Papa can't use a computer yet
How it hurts me to confess
Mama don't have no email address

Hush little baby don't be glum
Papa's gonna buy you a Pentium
And if that Pentium should crash
Mama's gonna buy you a Macintosh

Don't you worry, don't be alarmed
We'll get you online before you're harmed
We'll place a mouse in your wee hand
Before you can walk, or even stand

We'll put a screen in your bassinette
Ain't raisin' no computer illiterate

Music traditional
