Watching your fingers go ‘spherical,

Or wanting on the e book

Go down, down, down.

And whenever you’re on the backside,

You would possibly really feel like me-

Drained, worn out,

Like historic historical past.

However nonetheless you’ve got realized

What you’ve got carried out that day,

And you could understand it

‘Til Tuesday.

In fact, in case you’re good,

You might understand it from the

Twentieth to the twenty-first century.

Properly, do some typing

It will not do any hurt

Provide you with a grade

With slightly appeal,

And even slightly muscle

In your arms.
