No 124 July 19
Everybody’s got a phone,
That is, all except me,
I just can’t seem to cope with them,
Me and phones don’t agree.
I expect everyone else to have one,
And they’re needed more and more,
I will have to make an effort,
They’re a way of life for sure.
Geoff gets a number for me,
Someone I’d like to ring,
It goes off as soon as I touch it,
The damn thing I could fling,
Everywhere you go now,
Someone’s got one in their hand,
They’ve got them round a meal table,
I think this should be banned.
I’ll have to have some lessons,
Or I’ll be left behind,
They’re a big part of the modern world,
And a big part of mankind.
The one thing that I would have loved,
When my children were all small,
I’d love to have their pictures,
Then those memories I could recall.
So the next time that you see me,
I could just appear,
I think I’ll join the modern times,
And have a phone stuck to my ear.
