Song lyrics:

Gimme an A for my Apple, the little apple of my eye
And A is also for my Air Pro, the watch that gives me more than time

B is for my Bell Cig Charger, it’s also for my Belkin Cassette Adapter
I also got a Buck, ha, no not a deer, this one’s shiny and sharp, ohhh dear

C…F Card that is, let’s not forget my Creature Speakis

Alright, back to tha blues

Gimme a D for my D-Link it sends signals thru the air
And when I’m lost in a city, Destinator gets me there.

E is for the extra batteries….that’s it!

F is for my Fuji Digicam

G and I are travellin as were Griffin iTrippin

HP leads my Ipaq into the court hearing
Got a pair of headphones that silence everything

Oooooo, it gets a little scary, got a Monster in my bag, also got an Innopocket protects my scandalous Ipaq

My Journey’s pack is always loaded, with all the gadgets that I have

Always got a can of Klik in my bag, gotta love the side effects of canned meat instead

Instead if my Lexar or a Lowepro bag

Or what about microdrive or a multi-tool instead (holds it and cough)

Gotta ergo Nike backpack and a Powerball indeed, no not a lottery ticket silly

Rollin with my buddy Oakley, gotta use that caribeen…er

P’s a lonely place for Pentax, currently shooting me

Always have a quarter, like mommy told me

R brings us Razr and some recharge batteries.

S is a Syson GPS indeed, a swiss card and a sharp knife leads us to T

Toshiba leads my gadgets in size and memory

I’m getting a hankerin for the blues in G

The USB is quite ingenious, it powers almost anything

V is for my Akron Vent Mount, my GPS is lost without this thing.

Gotta a wiener named Frank in the sack, ya never know when a BBQ breaks out in the back.

X is for the xtra stuff that wouldn’t fit, under their respective alphabet
We got a Tumi wheely bag, a tripod and a Gravis airliner. Also got a Laptop case and a notebook mouse a little sack for odds and sods and a freakin robot.

Y is for the Yummy Eats, the yummy eats I like keep. I like to keep my tummy happy, so I feed it yummy eats.

Well my friends there’s only one letter left…
Z is for the Zzzzzzz’s that I need to get, goodday, goodnight my friends, it’s time for me to leave.

I really hope you’ve enjoyed my gadgetry. Let me leave you with a though or two, hell, maybe 3, take care, wash your hands and comb your hair.

Gadgets will change, so will your hair….
