A parody - I need a floppy now

Sony announced that in 2011, it would stop making/selling floppy disks.  In honor of their demise, I wrote a little ditty.

To the tune "Need You Now" (Lady Antebellum)

Pictures on my floppies
Scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the holder,
disks just dont belong anymore.

And I wonder if I'll ever re-install
Windows for Workgroups three-one-one

They charge a quarter just for one,
Sony says they're done, but I need one now.
Said I'd back them up, but floppies aren't for sale
and I need one now.
And I don't know how I can do without,
I need a floppy now.

Another ruined floppy
Cover got jammed in the door.
Wishing I had transferred all my files long before.

And I wonder if I'll ever re-install
Novell Netware two point, oh the time.

They charge a quarter just for one,
I put 'em in the trunk and I need one now.
Said I'd back 'em up, but floppies aren't for sale
and I need one now.
And I don't know how I can do without,
I need a floppy now.

Yes I'd rather use disks than nothing at all.

I had a holder full of some,
but Sony's gone and done killed floppy now.
I even tried to call,
But Sony just hung up and I need one now.
And I don't know how I can do without,
I need a floppy now.
Mavica is useless now.
Oh Sony, I need one now.

  1. Yes, it's true. You wrote it so eloquently that I'm thinking I'd better transfer all my floppy disk files;D
