"Trouble with the Computer" as written by and Gregory J Macainsh....
Went down to the bank to make a deposit yesterday
The system just went haywire began to overpay
Ten too many zeros on my sixty dollars cash
There I was like Howard Hughes a tycoon in a flash

Trouble with the computer perhaps a faulty switch
Maybe it just likes me and wants to make me rich

Gas bill came this morning I was making toast
I like the odd
hot shower and sometimes Sunday roast
But we'd all sell our houses and go and live in tents
If the gas bill came to four grand and ninety seven cents

Trouble with the computer its' memories gone black
Lucky I refused to pay I've got myself to thank
Trouble with the computer happens every day
So much for brainpower IBM is here to stay

So if you take that plane to Sydney and end up in Taiwan
The automatic pilot he's done something wrong
If your ice cream tastes like tooth paste
And a milk horse wins the race
Computer's lost its logic and it's started to erase
Trouble...Trouble...Trouble...Trouble...

Somewhere someday some smart guy
Will turn around and shout
Give me a pen and paper and I can work it out
But till then we are stuck
With computers going wrong
And if this verse sounds out of tune
A computer wrote this song

Trouble with the computer that's what the man said
Some kind of random error the light is glowin' red
Trouble with the computer the machine will not obey
So much for brainpower IBM is here to stay
