lyrics

I started as a concept, began as a dream
Brainchild of a genius media team
But it's not a game, there's no contestants
The ultimate investment in human resources
Humans need more of this, thoughts so generous
Combined with intelligence, the best set precident
Just a new era, the tide's now turning
Think about thinking, learn about learning
A global initiative in 2005
Right from the start I touched two million lives
A positive prospect, people are talking
Everybody's interested, the whole world's watching
Build a generation, construct a community
Increase capacity, improve opportunity
Worldwide enhancement with no exceptions
A hundred dollar laptop exceeding projections

Millions of children are born every year
How can we accommodate? It doesn't seem clear
Management, oversight, a must to achieve it
What about the hardware and software that's needed
An LCD you can read me through
And an AMD certified CPU
We can do it all, you and me prove
Add three more ports that are USB 2
Plus I'm on a diet for lower energy
Got an SD slot, and some flash memory
Keyboard, touchpad, now they gon' feel us
Microphone, camera, and stereo speakers
Still need an OS, let the best choose
Bring on the Hurd with Tux to the rescue
Put it all together, see that it's worth it
The box is complete, the packaging's perfect

Now I see criticism with creativity
They dispute intention, doubt feasibility
They laughed at the crank that gave the power levels
Cool, we improved and added a foot pedal
Now we're picking up speed moving overnight
2006 saw the first prototypes
The critics are scared so they hate what they fear
Ten million units by the fourth quarter here
That's ten million children in one year of movement
Talk about proof, that's what I call improvement
We're not finished, it's the start of a trend
The technology provided means to an end
Every night, day, morning, and afternoon
The world owes MIT a huge debt of gratitude
Thanks to the engineers holding down the fort
And every other company who showed their support
