A transistor? How bloody 70's!
Five names that I can hardly
Stand to hear,
Including yours and mine
And one more chimp who isn't here.
I can see the ladies talking
How the times are getting hard
And that fearsome excavation
On Magnolia Boulevard.

CHORUS:
And I'm going insane
And I'm laughing at the frozen rain
And I'm so alone...
Honey, when they gonna send me home?
Bad sneakers and a Pia Colada,
My friend,
Stompin' on the avenue
By Radio City with a
Transistor and a large
Sum of money to spend.

You fellah, you tearin' up the street--
You wear that white tuxedo,
How you gonna beat the heat?
Do you take me for a fool?
Do you think that I don't see
That ditch out in the valley
That they're digging just for me?

CHORUS

1. Had it not been for the transistor
the microprocessor would not exist.

Thus would computers still be the size of an SUV and cost several hundred thousand dollars, at least.









Kid.

:P

2. It's still....70s.
The only good thing about that whole long decade was the (non-disco) music.

7. And the cars
For the first three years, anyway.

9. ..and.the wide open recreational drug use and promiscuity...
coming of age in the 70s made me the hedonist that I am today

The 70s were not the Me Decade, but rather The Me and You and You and You Decade

6. My mom was.
So was my dad, but he was only a teenager, while my mom was through with college by '77.
