lyrics

I got sent to computer camp
Every day I'd walk to the college
We'd go to program on the terminals
learning BASIC or FORTRAN

It was pretty fun, I learned a thing or two
It lasted a week, during summer holidays

Next time they offered computer camp
They changed it to computer and *sport* camp
So we'd program in the morning but then
Play sports all afternoon
Somebody thought computer nerds needed exercise
Or sports jocks needed computer skills
But it meant that some stupid jocks were there
And for this computer nerd, it was no longer safe

The bully threatened me, I don't know why
All week he told me he'd beat me up
On the last day I was supposed to meet him
Out by the rink boards for a fight

Instead I snuck out the building, through a different door
I ran home, ran all the way home
I just ran home
