The Problem With the Today Generation…..

Out on the town these old texters stand,
Grasping their Iphones in their long bony hands.
Fixed is their gaze on the Alphas and the Ohs
Won’t they be happy if the message really goes!

Tap go the keypads….. tap, tap, tap….
One asks “How do you work this? I think I need an App!”
Don’t look at me the other says, I’ve just made a blue
And curses at the wretched thing ‘cos it’s…..

“………modern technology which I really don’t understand and haven’t a clue why I’d want to go through all this anguish at mucking around with all this typing and entering stuff when I could just dial a number and talk to someone that I know who would love to hear my voice and understand what I’m trying to say…… that’s if I’m really trying to say anything at all. uuuuugh!”

****Profound apologies to the author of “Click go the Shears” as two verses could almost be sung to the same tune……* Admin

.….In June 2013 it was discovered that a version of the song was first published in 1891 in the regional Victorian newspaper the Bacchus Marsh Express under the title “The Bare Belled Ewe” and the tune given as “Ring the Bell Watchman.” That version was signed “C. C. Eynesbury, Nov. 20, 1891,”[1] Eynesbury being a rural property located in the Bacchus Marsh area.[2] It is possible that “C.C.” was the author of the song.
