  • Parody of "Fascination" Jane Morgan (M_Robertcop)
  • Song Lyrics:
    It was automation, I know
    That was what was making the factory go

    It was IBM
    It was Univac

    It was all those gears going
    Clickity clack, dear

    I thought automation was keen
    Till you were replaced by a ten-ton machine

    It was a computer that tore us apart, dear
    Automation broke my heart.

    There's an RCA 5-0-3
    Standing next to me, dear, where you used to be

    Doesn't have your smile
    Doesn't have your shape,

    Just a bunch of punch cards and light bulbs and tape, dear

    You're a girl who's soft, warm and sweet
    But you're only human and that's obsolete

    Though I'm very fond of that new 5-0-3, dear Automation's not for me.
    It was automation, I'm told. That's why I got fired and I'm out in the cold

    How could I have known When the 5-0-3
    Started in to blink it was winking at me, dear

    I thought it was just some mishap
    When it sidled over and sat on my lap

    But when it said, "l love you " and gave me a hug, dear
    That's when I pulled out. . . its plug.
