Behind the Times

I still say my alarm clock “ticks”

and my beeping cell-phone “rings”

I’ll say to “roll” your window down

and other ancient things

 

You’ll tell me to “hang up” my phone

but there’s no cradle on the wall.

Should I dial “Oh” for Operator

and “Klondike 5” to call?

 

I should say “album” or “mp3”

but I’ll say “record” when it plays

tell me I’m behind the times

I like it best that way.
