They say that I'm outdated.
Ha, little do they know
The most ambitious thing with wires
Is the kitchen clock radio.
I am strong and need no praise.
They say that I am a thing of the past
while they plug in their headphones
and ignore my existence
But I will withstand sticks and stones
and their words will never hurt me.
They may forget me for a day
til I set my alarm for the middle of the night
and blast Mozart til they turn me off
or unplug me, thinking the idea is bright
then I'll zap them for their trouble.
