I Hope You Understand Dear

Breaking Up with a Computer

I HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND DEAR

For years I’ve been watchin’ folks on the T.V.

Sometimes it seemed they were more real than me

Then I met you computer, you wanted my touch

Y’gave me the ‘control’ that I needed so much!

 

Cho:  I hope you understand Dear, you’ll forgive me, I know

Y’follow ev’ry ‘command’ Dear, but I’m going back home!

 

There was something attractive bout your organized mind

I turned you on and our lives intertwined

I spent so much time sittin’, just gazing at you

That my wife, she suspected and my kids, they did too!

 

Well we didn’t try t’hide it, we started ‘scrollin’ around

We’d go out on ‘datas’ and you’d never ‘go down’

So I knew you meant business, that you weren’t the cheap kind

But I need some body, Darlin’, not just some mind!!

Chorus

 

My wife and kids miss me, 'n heck, you never smile,

So I’m goin’ back dear, t’start a new ‘file’!

Now the thrill is all gone, so it’s not worth the risk

And it’s tough to play games with an old ‘floppy disk’

 

Chorus: I hope you understand Dear, you’ll forgive me, I know

I need someone with hands Dear, so I’m going back home!!

 

But back home in the bedroom, my life was a wreck!

My wife was in bed, with ‘mega-bytes’ on her neck!

‘Warm boots’ in the hall, ‘Wordstars’ in her eyes,

A ‘User-friendly’ computer lyin’ there on her thighs!

(Spoken: I couldn’t ‘cursor’ for that, so I said,)

 

Chorus: I hope you understand Dear, and you’ll forgive me,

I know!

Cause this ‘terminal illness’ has been wrecking our home!!!

 

I hope you understand Dear, cause I love you so much!

So let’s write some new programs, that’ll keep us in touch!

 

I hope you understand Dear, and you’ll forgive me, I know!

You’re just right for this man Dear, so I’m comin’ back home!
