Ode to HMV

Another friend is lost to me

Another victim of downloading and piracy

There was a time where I’d write

A prayer or passionate plea

But how the world has changed

My paper and pen for a keyboard

And a touch screen

Where does a relic like me go

To sooth my soul with movies and music

My HMV is lost to me

No more walks to the store

With the excitement of wonder

To what can be discovered

No more talks with the staff about what has come out today

My, how the world has changed

The cold and distorted world of downloading

Has a firm grip

But one day

Just like vinyl

People will hear the plea

Bring back my HMV
