Some newly inspired TakeBacktheTech lyrics

December 6, 2009 at 3:32 pm 13 comments

These lyrics were inspired by something Yusuf Jan, co-Founder of Mixit Technologies and Chairman of P@SHA, wrote last evening. He put the following lyrics on Twitter when he heard that I was at a beauty parlour having a haircut and pedicure:Paint those nails and perm those curls; Say no to abuse, you go girl!

Well that was enough to inspire the following lyrics. Here goes🙂

I paint my nails, and perm my curls:
But say NO to abuse, that’s where I go, girl!
No-one’s any less, for looking good
Life’s a serious business, do what you should

A cool keyboard and handy phone, saves me trouble
With them by my side, I do more than double
Digits and bytes, they’re mine to use well
Ours here on earth, thanks to old Graham Bell

(chorus)
Take back the tech, take back the tech
Not yours or mine, it was ours from the start
It’s your life, it’s my life, what the heck
It’s our lives together, our souls and our hearts

Painted nails & a well-permed curl
Though I don’t need them to be a girl
I will have them, sure, cos that’s my right
To be what I can be, with all my might

I paint up my gear and curl up with my pages
It’s my life to live, and I’ll choose my own stages
When I need to I must find my own voice
When I’ve something to say, for that’s my own choice

(chorus)
Take back the tech, take back the tech
Not yours or mine, it was ours from the start
It’s your life, it’s my life, what the heck
It’s our lives together, our souls and our hearts

What say you Yusuf Jan? Are they acceptable? Would anyone like to work on putting this to music and singing it. Yes that means you Rabia Garib!😀

Of course there is another song that has been in the works for quite a while the lyrics of which were written by Bina Shah. We hope to launch that before December 10 as well.

    @Jac a friend is working on it as we speak

    @Anriette thank you

    @Fariha you are cheering for the wrong person. Yusuf only wrote: Paint those nails and perm those curls; Say no to abuse, you go girl! No doubt he inspired the rest but he didn’t write it. Want to guess who did?
