My Tandy Color Computer does just fine for what I want to do.

With 16K of RAM and a cassette drive, what more does anyone need?

Now if only I could get a Color Television to hook it up to instead of the B&W one I am currently using, it would be amazing!

Great backgammon game came with that, didn't it? I believe my cousin had one - maybe not in color, though.

Can we get an version for the Atari 2600? I really love that console and would love to play STO with one button. Along with hardcore graphics and sound that can only be attained on a 2600.

I went to buy computers and they said, "A million bucks
For a brand-new mainframe IBM" -- now, that price really sucks!
So I looked at all the pictures and I chose to build my own,
For you can build a mainframe from the things you find at home!

Take the CPU, you see it's only just a box
With blinking lights and whirring fans and lots of cable slots.
So I spent an evening working with some wires and bulbs and pins,
Then I hauled them to the basement and I plugged the freezer in.

Next I needed tape drives, my tape drives were a steal.
I climbed into the attic for my dad's old reel-to-reel.
Some cable and some binder twine and soon it was complete --
My CPU and tape drive at a price no one could beat!

Then I looked for disc drives, but it didn't take me long.
"Function follows form," they say -- or have I got that wrong?
I found a drive with 5 new modes that blows the rest away ...
Cottons, linens, wash-n-wear, rinse, and lingerie!

I had to have a console just to make my system run.
Without a fancy console, then my system wasn't done.
I tied a ten-buck typewriter to a broken TV tube,
And now I've got a console that can write the evening news.

I've had my system running, I'll admit its not the best.
The data isn't right, and the response time is a mess.
It crashes every hour and it isn't worth a damn,
But I'm satisfied because it runs just like an IBM!

IBM, DEC, and Honeywell, HP, DG, and ****,
Amdahl, NEC, and NCR, they don't know anything.
They make big bucks for systems so they never want it known
That you can build a mainframe from the things you find at home!
