SLO’ TO CHANGE
These newfangled things are simply amazin’.
Totally awe struck I’m here justa gazin’.
Realizin’ that right at the threshold I stand
with the greatest achievement of civilized man.
No more thru the dark and the rain will I run.
No more in the cold will I sit.
Sears’nRoebuck will probably still hang around,
but the times are a changin’ a bit.
Years later I’m satisfied that was the highmark
of newfangled contraptions to me.
The most useful invention
at relievin’ tension.
A most relaxin’ seat yes siree.
Now change is a thing I thought I was use to,
with airplanes and autos and such.
But, I’ve heard my fall and winter Sears’nRoebuck
is the last one I’ll ever hang up.
Oh no. Oh woo! Sears’nRoebuck I’ll miss you.
Your pages have kept me all thru the years.
But, computers today can pert’near do anything,
so I reckon these spread sheets will do.
