The Lyrics

Writers notes: 1) Mac means MacIntosh computer 2) Big Blue means IBM computer 3) Motorola makes the Mac processing chip, like Intel makes Pentiums 4) G3 is a Mac (shows how old this song is they are now selling G5's) 5) HEX and BIN are short for hexadecimal and binary (I'll leave it at that) 6) SIT is a compression like ZIP or ARC or LZH 7) daisy chain is a SCSI term 8) SCSI is a connection type like IDE, E-IDE, Firewire and USB 9) Java is a programming language 10) If it's too techy, it was supposed to be
This Mac is not my own
I haven't got a clue
Cause all my training was
Done on a Big Blue
I'll never understand
This Motorola world
And I can't do my math
On a G3 anymore

So now, you know
I haven't got a clue
I just can't make this work
And I don't know what to do
I've punched a bunch of keys
But this Mac just won't behave
And I'm losing my mind
Cause my data will not save

My roommate said
His Mac is his best friend
But I don't understand
Just how did this all begin
The .HEX and .BIN extensions
Are just .SIT'n on my brain
And I cannot do a thing
With a broken daisy chain

This SCSI world
Is fuzzy and insane
If Java overflows,
Is it gonna leave a stain?
This single bit rate speed
Has got to be too slow
Cause I've booted up the drives
But the system will not load
