Hush little baby. . .

Susan Notes:

Here's the low-down on the technological fix.

Hush little baby I'm singing to you
Papa's gonna buy you an I-Pad 2

And when that I-pad's obsolete
Papaâs gonna buy you an I-Pad 3.

And when that 3 can't do more
We'll upgrade to an I-Pad 4.

And when that 4 just won't do.
An I-Pad 5 will be waiting for you

And when the brand new apps won't fit
We'll move on to an I-Pad 6.

With the I-Pad 7 you can't go wrong
You can watch Justin Bieber & Annoying Orange

And Angry Birds will play great
When you try it on the I-Pad 8

But upgrade costs, paying ATT,
screen protectors, and other fees

I keep losing our pdf pens,
and we need to upgrade to pdfpen10

So w'âve come to the end of the line
We canât afford the I-Pad 9

Hush little baby don't look sad
We've got enough for the new touchpad.

(THEN REPEAT the whole thing, substituting touchpad for i-pad)
