Altair, Apple, Floppy Days,

Commodore, Tandy, Floppy Days,

Atari, TI, Floppy Days,

The weekend comes, the disk drive hums

Ready to code for you!

These days were all

Happy and free (those floppy days)

The games we played,

You shared with me (those days)

Motorola, Intel, 6502

Graphics and text are there to view

Composite color or RGB

Program fun for you and me!


IMSAI, PC, Floppy Days,

ST, Amiga, Floppy Days,

Junior, Sinclair, Floppy Days

Classic days, micro ways

Geekin' all week with you!

These days were all,

Happy and free (those floppy days)

The games we played

You shared with me (those days)

These Floppy Days are yours and mine

(These Floppy Days are yours and mine)

Floppy Days!
