The Lyrics

Ok, I'm not so bad as the song indicates...maybe!
Don't have a cell phone
Land line's what I own
I know that I'm impossibly Low Tech, Low Tech
Can't Facebook or Twitter
Don't call me a quitter
I was born back in '54, Low Tech Low Tech

Don't do my shopping or bill paying
On line - I'd crash
I seldom use credit cards
Rather pay cash

Don't have an I-Pod
Now isn't that odd
The headphones always give me a pain in the neck
I'm not a Youtube fan
I'm a Cro-Magnon Man
Because I'm so Low Tech Low Tech

(Instrumental Break)

Low Tech, Low Tech
I purchased my first CD player ten years ago
The reason I got so bold:
My stereo...It is so old...It's gonna blow!

Don't have Black Ber-ry
It's way too scare-y
I play my poker face to face with an old deck
I simply have no place
Way out in cyber space
I'm pure Low Tech...Low Tech...Low Tech!

OMR, our generation was the last to make it all the way through school without seeing a computer. But that means we'll be ready when a big solar flare fries all the PCs on the planet. :-)

Born in '54 doesn't qualify you as Old Man. I graduated HS then, met first computer in '56 (Univac 60 filled much of a room). My '03 PC is fast enough, and pre-Y2K '96 still works!

Still talking on a rotary dial phone, listening to my 45 rpm records. No cell phone, digital camera, answering machine, cable. After last week, no TV either. I can live with books and AM radio. I feel an affinity with the Amish. They hire taxis when they want to ride somewhere beyond buggy range. I borrow a computer when my manual typewriter can't post a song parody.
