"Pocket Calculator" as written by and Schult/huetter/bartos....
I'm the operator with my pocket calculator
I'm the operator with my pocket calculator
I am adding and subtracting
I'm controlling and composing
I'm the operator with my pocket calculator
I'm the operator with my pocket calculator
I am adding and subtracting
I'm controlling and composing
By pressing down a special key, it plays a little melody
By pressing down a special key, it plays a little melody
I'm the operator with my pocket calculator
I'm the operator with my pocket calculator

    General CommentOnly Kraftwerk could write a song about the pleasures of playing with a pocket calculator, and make it into a perfect joy like this. The whole Computer World album is superb, and this is a highlight of it.

    General CommentYay, i love my Casio pocket calculator!!! Anyway, i saw Kraftwerk perform live in the middle of the desert. I was walking through the sandunes and out of nowhere there was a stage set up with these robotik-looking men on the stage playing this song WHILST playing their calculators.
