In high school I was smart, confident, but quiet
Never was one to propose a riot
But now I'm in college and I've seen it through
What time-worn technology does to you
I moved onto programming, computers, and software
But I've fallen behind more than I can bare
With no prior knowledge, no foothole, no base
It's all I can do to succeed in this place
My college is cruel, no complaints or excuses
But this is what deprecated technology induces:
I work for hours, hours, hours on end
Yet with little results, please make amends!
Give them technology, and keep your school current
How else will they know how to program or torrent?
I'm a former scholar, class of twenty eleven
My school still teaches Word two-thousand and seven
Give them technology, you're falling behind!
The greatest opportunity to stimulate the mind
The world is at their fingertips, just show them how
Upgrade your software, and do it now!
Give them technology, so they can advance
Build something new and give others a chance
It starts with an idea, a spark, and a dream
To change people's lives and raise their esteem
