Sharpening our wits on the grindstone of Life

To My Valentine


I can't fax you my love,
I can't email my heart.
I can't see your face in cyberspace,
I don't know where to start.
I'm light years behind,
from this age they call stone.
I'm just a carbon-based caveman;
just flesh and bone.

If men came from Venus,
and women came from Mars,
then I'd be lunching with my boyfriends,
while you girls talked about cigars.
But that's not how it happened,
evolution took a different turn.
We may be creatures with some unique features,
but we've still got a lot to learn.

Now, we live in this age of computers.
They run everything in the world.
I'm a little behind on this technical climb,
and you are an internet girl.
I've got words but no processor,
I've got feelings but I don't know DOS.
So I just have to go back to basics
to try to get my point across.

I can't fax you my love,
I can't email my heart.
I can't see your face in cyberspace,
I don't know where to start.
I'm light-years behind,
from this age they call stone.
I'm a carbon-based caveman;
just flesh and bone.

Flesh and Bone - Jimmy Buffett
