Lyrics

Well it?s a tragedy in this day and age
of web-enabled cell-phones and pda?s
voicemail, email, and pagers too
all that high-tech high-falootin bugaboo

cause i got me this here new pda cell
with wireless web and email
and it sure is reassuring to know that i
can be gotten ahold of on any ol? fly

fishin trip, in any state
on a mountain bike or roller blades
but you know the thing that really gets me down,
i?m high-availability and you?re nowhere to be found

It?s the tragedy of technology
i?m mr. online, you got no ISP
though you can reach out and touch me 7 x 24
you just don?t seem to reach out anymore

it?s a tragedy, just a cryin shame
i got 20 passwords, you got no username

My battery?s charged and the signal?s strong
but i got no missed calls
are the satellites misaligned
have you tried to get through at all

my new laptop hasn?t crashed
and i searched thru all the spam
before i emptied the trash
i posted to the personals
but you haven?t heard my pleas
won?t you call me darlin, won?t you please?

it?s the tragedy of technology
i?m mr. online, you got no PC
and my vibrating gizmos ain?t filled my pockets full of joy
when can i show you all my new toys

yes it?s the tragedy of technology
such a masochistic game
communication, information is the key
the door is open if you?ll email me

so i sit alone at home with my new phone
and pine away the hours surfin porn
somehow this connection is seeming slow
but you?re low-tech,
so you just don?t know

and will you ever know the feeling
of being so connected that each
moment of silence is a curse

and of days that go by
when your name?s not displayed
you know its lookin mighty clear
i ain?t a-gonna get laid

it?s the tragedy of technology
you?re in my phone list
but not on caller id
though you can reach out and touch me 7 x 24
you just don?t seem to reach out anymore

yes it?s a tragedy, just a cryin shame
i got 20 passwords, you got no username
