lyrics

It was a sunny summer day
In northern Ontario
I was playing with my C64
At my desk in my room
With the window open
Feel the summer breeze

My parents said it was time
To go to the kite festival
So I turned off the computer
And grabbed my kite and off we went

Down to the marina, the kites were flying
My kite joined the colourful crowd
We laughed and saw the sites
And then a rain storm suddenly moved in

Everyone scrambled and we started to drive home
Then the sun came back out again
I went up to my room and found my
Commodore 64 sitting in a puddle of rain

The wind must have blown it through the window
There was a pool of water in the keyboard
I had the sense to unplug it, and took a screwdriver
And took it apart, and towelled it out and left it to dry
Propped up like a pyramid
A computer pyramid

I left it for a full day, a full day without my computer
Not even knowing if it would still work
Trying to imagine how I could earn enough money to buy another

I put it back together and turned it on... and the blue screen came on
It still worked, it still worked, it still worked.
