The Lyrics

Um... that's 'Palm' as in 'Palm Pilot', i.e., Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). Geez, what freaks you all are...
Young man, please start facing the facts
I say, young man, ditch your old filofax
Because young man, pen and paper's for hacks
And eraser marks are sloppy

Young man, diaries should be banned
Because, young man, there's a new way to plan
That's much better, and you must understand
That we'll all convert in due time...

Check out the features on MY P.D.A.
Check out the features on MY P.D.A.

Applications galore, lots of things to deploy
It's the ultimate grown-up toy

Check out the features on MY P.D.A.
Check out the features on MY P.D.A.

With a telephone book...And a calendar too...
It keeps track of undone 'to-do's

Young man, I don't mean to be mean
But my young man, you're a diary queen
I say, young man, trade a page for a screen
Won't you please check out this cool thing

It can fit in jacket or shirt
If you're late man, it will sound an alert
And I'm certain, with a new P.D.A.
You can organize your whole day

Check out the features on MY P.D.A.
Check out the features on MY P.D.A.

With a telephone book, and a pad for your notes,
It keeps track of the things you wrote

Check out the features on MY P.D.A.
Check out the features on MY P.D.A.

Read the paper online, and take notes on the fly
Now you even can do Wi-Fi!

Young man, I was once in your shoes
I say, I once used a diary too
But I lost it, and oh boy was I screwed
'Cause my whole damned life was in there

That's when someone came up to me
And said, young man, don't you have a P.C.?
Well then young man, get a new P.D.A.
And just back the files up each day

Check out the features on MY P.D.A.
Check out the features on MY P.D.A.

When you load data in, back it up in a flash
So you're safe even if you crash!

MY P.D.A.
There's nothing better than my P.D.A.
Young man, young man, please start facing the facts
Young man, young man, ditch that old filofax

MY P.D.A.
Just go to the MY P.D.A.
Young man, young man, you're a diary queen
Young man, young man, trade a page for a screen

MY P.D.A.
There's nothing better than my P.D.A.
Young man, it can fit in jacket or shirt
Young man, it can even sound an alert

Are you lookin' at MY P.D.A.?
MY P.D.A.!
Young man, young man, I was once so confused
Young man, young man, now I track my to-dos...

...MY P.D.A....
...MY P.D.A...

I'll admit that I raised my eyebrows at the title...; ) Nice work, though...my favorite line was "It keeps track of undone 'to-do's," perhaps because I have way too many undone to-do's myself...great job!!

PDA--sounds like a digitaldo. 15 megabytes.

:-) I suppose that the obvious one would be a parody to Queen's "I'm in love with my car"... a kind of limerick sprang to mind:
There once was a techie, so wise
And tired of Microsoft lies
That he'd scream every day
F*** Windows 2k
Why not try on a Psion for size

I've had bad experiences with PDAs. Dog ate the first one. The next three "crashed" within days of purchase, so I gave up on them and invested in whiteout. But enough about me. Good song =)

At long last, peace has been restored to Amiright through this finely executed masterpiece. The last few days, in my opinion, have been atrocious for parodies. Congratulations, Lee O, this is officially the first 555 i've given out in a week. Friggin' fantastic! 555

I'm totaly in sync with this one! 555!

I admit, when I saw the title, I thought you were talking about a tree... Glad you're happy with your Personal Data Annihilator.

I'm sure if I thought hard enough, I could find all the hidden metaphors that make the title as dirty as I read it initially. But I'm not that smart anyway. Clever job, Lee 0.

Thanks for stopping by with the kind comments everyone.

And no one even slammed me for the brilliant lyric "Just go to the MY P.D.A." Heh. Nice proofreading there -- obviously, I was typing over a template of the original lyric...

Tricky title...and a lot of good lifelines in your Palm...fivz

You're right, your title was completely misleading. I expected gratuitous detailing of arboreal sex. ;) 555

Yeah, the title got me, as well. Never owned a PDA, but might have to get one now. 555

I like my Pocket PC, but hooray for your P.D.A. !

About those "To-dos" - I have something much cheaper and easier for those. I have this round piece of wood about the size of a US silver dollar that has written on it the word "TUIT". I call it my Round TUIT. And I just show this to someone when I am past a deadline and they are bugging me about it. One of the better YMCA parodies I've seen.

fine job, Leo - and I can relate - they don't call me "to-dos Lautrec" for nothing - 555

Wow, fourteen votes -- most I've seen in a while. Clearly, it's all in the marketing:
1.) an OS whose title starts with a letter towards the end of the alphabet (so you have prime position on the 'New Entries' list)
and
2.) a misleadingly salacious title to ensnare the sick puppies ;-).

Great one, Lee O!! 5's

Another way to get lots of votes is for somebody to start a neverending argument on your thread. I got over 20 that way...:/ . I think people came over just to see what the fuss was about.

Fabulous job, darling, but even if the parody wasn't brilliant, I'd give you fives for using the word filofax! I had forgotten all about those!
