Bits Bytes Chips Clocks
Bits in bytes on chips in box.
Bytes with bits and chips with clocks
Chips in box on ether-docks.

Chips with bits come. Chips with bytes come
Chips with bits and bytes and clocks comes.

Look, sir. Look, sir. Read the book, sir.
Let's do tricks with bits and bytes, sir.
Let's do tricks with chips and clocks, sir.

First, I'll make a quick trick bit stack.
Then I'll make a quick trick byte stack
You can make a quick trick chip stack
You can make a quick trick clock stack.

And here's a new trick on the scene
Bit in bytes for your machine
Bytes in words to fill your screen.

Now we come to ticks and tocks, sir.
Try to say this by the clock, sir.

Clocks on chips tick
Clocks on chips tock
Eight byte bits tick
Eight bit bytes tock
Clocks on chips with eight bit bytes tick
Chips with clocks and eight bytes bits tock.

Here's an easy game to play.
Here's and easy thing to say...

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort
then the socket packed has an error to report!

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
and the double clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
and your date is corrupted because the index doesn't hash,
then your situation's hopeless, and your system is gonna crash.

You can't say this? What a shame, sir!
We'll find you another game, sir.

If the label on the table on the table at your house
says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
but your packed wants to tunnel on another protocol,
that's repeatedly rejected  by the printer down the hall,
and your screen is all distorted by the side-effects of gauss,
so your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse,
then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
'cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!

When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the sick,
and the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk,
then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
quickly turn off your computer and be sure to tell your mom
