Liner Notes: 

I bought a new Mac in April after months of saving

I wrote the first two stanzas around then and then today I finished the lyrics in the spirit of fun for 5090 and the long slog ahead.

Enjoy and have a laugh

Lyrics: 

5090 - song 1 - new Mac today

Someone's buying a Mac today
A Mac today
A Mac today
Someone's buying a Mac today
On this Saturday morning

She saved her money for months n months
Months n months
Months n months
She saved her money for months n months
Cos a new Mac was calling

But the shop they made her wait
Made her wait
Made her wait
But the shop, they made her wait
Cos it was put on order

She stomped back home a bit grumpy
A bit grumpy,
A bit grumpy
She stomped back home a bit grumpy
Hands shoved in her pockets

One afternoon she got a text
Got a text,
Got a text
One afternoon she got a text
Her Mac was at the store now

She ran and jumped and skipped and smiled
Skipped and smiled
Skipped and smiled
She ran and jumped and skipped and smiled
Before they closed the doors-ah

But now she loves her brand new toy
Brand new toy
Brand new toy
And now she loves her brand new toy
And all the songs she's writing

Now she needs a brand new phone
A brand new phone
A brand new phone
Now she needs a brand new phone so
Everything synchronises

This is great and I sang it as I read it! Enjoy your new toy and have a great 50/90!

Here we go round the Apple shop... Biggrin

Fun lyric and a nice start to the 50/90 silliness!

Until the last couple of verses, I wasn't 100% sure you weren't talking about a waterproof raincoat. The song has the kind of punchy energy that reminds me of an excited child sploshing around in their waterproof coat and boots - especially with all the stomping and handses in warm pocketses... I like it.

Ha! Perfect! Now you need a new phone song to follow! Great cadence and lots of fun!

These lyrics have a bouncy sing-along vibe that's terrific fun! (And I can relate - coincidentally, I just got a new Mac too just a few weeks before 50/90 - new toys are 'the bomb'! Biggrin ).

Hilarious, but there's that little pinch too-- when it seems like everything hinges on that item you're waiting for, and the time to get your hands on it just keeps stretching, it's painful.

Hahahahaahah the joy of finally getting that one thing and then... the frustration of not getting it. The horror of modern life. I've had many similar experiences, in particular with a tablet I bought online... gee, two weeks felt like a century.
