That old time PDP
 
Just take that PRO down off the shelf
and let me program it by myself.
A half a meg's just fine by me,
I love that old-time PDP.
 
Refrain: I love that old-time PDP
The kinda CPU that sets you free.
Instruction set looks good to me.
I love that old-time PDP.
 
Don't try to take me to ZK.
Won't make it, I won't last a day.
I love that old-time PDP.
 
Refrain
 
Say I'm old fashioned, say I'm over the hill,
say I'm outmoded, oh say what you will.
Those new CPU's haven't got the same thrill,
I love that old-time PDP.
 
Refrain
 
You gotta balance their complexity
'gainst functionality and quality
The words are twice as long as I need,
I love that old-time PDP.
