Podcamp Anthem - Updated for PCWM6

I have a habit of re-writing lyrics and have realized that to avoid copyright problems one needs to do so with music in the public domain.

I did a version of this for me for PodCamp Boston. I have updated the lyrics for PodCamp WesternMass. The longest running podcamp in New England!

Enjoy!

I come from Franklin with a recorder on my knee
I’m going to PodCamp WesternMass my friends there to see
The web was down the day I left
Wireless was so spotty
Text and Twitter were all I had left
To keep me from going dotty

All you bloggers, don’t you cry for me
I’m a new media maker
With a PowerBook on my knee

I had a dream the other night
Google rank had settled still
I thought I saw my blog somewhere
High upon high, on top of the hill
Technorati, RSS, even Digg
Comments were incoming furious
How did this happen to get so big?
Ah, the "Molly Cyrus" video drew the curious!

All you listeners, don’t you cry for me
I’m a new media maker
With an iPod on my knee

I’ll soon be at PodCamp WesternMass
And then I’ll look around
And when I find Morriss Partee
I’ll fall upon the ground
But if I don’t find Lesley Lambert
This podcaster surely die
And when I’m dead and buried
Bloggers don’t you cry

All you viewers, don’t you cry for me
I’m a new media maker
With a laptop on my knee

with apologies to Stephen Foster



I come from "insert your place" with a recorder on my knee
I’m going to PodCamp "insert your place" my friends there to see
The web was down the day I left
Wireless was so spotty
Text and Twitter were all I had left
To keep me from going dotty

All you bloggers, don’t you cry for me
I’m a new media maker
With a PowerBook on my knee

I had a dream the other night
Google rank had settled still
I thought I saw my blog somewhere
High upon high, on top of the hill
Technorati, RSS, even Digg
Comments were incoming furious
How did this happen to get so big?
Ah, the "insert your name of the" video drew the curious!

All you listeners, don’t you cry for me
I’m a new media maker
With an iPod on my knee

I’ll soon be at PodCamp "insert your place"
And then I’ll look around
And when I find "insert your local celebrity"
I’ll fall upon the ground
But if I don’t find "insert your local celebrity"
This podcaster surely die
And when I’m dead and buried
Bloggers don’t you cry

All you viewers, don’t you cry for me
I’m a new media maker
With a camcorder on my knee
