The lyrics are exactly as I wrote them in 1979. I was inspired by an episode of _The Gong Show_ in which Every. Single. Act. Was somebody singing "The Way We Were." (One of the contestants even sang it in Pig Latin.)
Memories Like in 32K* RAM Think twice 'bout upgrading your system From the way it were.
Scattered program steps from the place where you left off, Hoping mem'ries will remember The way it were.
Can it be computers were so simple then? Or have ads rewritten ev'ry ... line? (Get it? HAR!) If we had the chance to build them all again Tell me, could we? Should we?
Memories Seem so intricate, and yet What seems too long to remember They simply choose to forget! So it's the short steps They will remember, If ever they remember The way it were.
The way it ... were.
*) Some time after I first wrote this song, I upgraded this line to 48K RAM.
