Lyrics

Boy, boy, boy, boy

I'm in love with my favorite toy
Can't go a day without computer boy
I smile at him while I turn him on
I'm so happy until computer's gone

I don't care, and I won't change myself
I don't want anybody else

I fell in love with the man of the future
I've got a thing for my laptop computer
I'm so in love with the man of the future
The only one who brings me joy is my computer boy
(Boy, boy, boy, boy, boy)

I'm trying not to get attached to you (attached to you)
But no one else gets me like you do (like you do)
When you glow on my face you make me come alive
I want your floppy disk to be my hard drive

I don't care, and I won't change myself
I don't want anybody else

I fell in love with the man of the future
I've got a thing for my laptop computer
I'm so in love with the man of the future
The only one who brings me joy is my computer boy

Don't ever leave me or go to sleep without me
Please stay by my side forever and never talk to anyone else
My dearest
(Boy, boy, boy, boy, boy)
Computer boy
(Boy, boy, boy, boy, boy)

I don't care, and I won't change myself
I don't want anybody else
No, I don't plan to change myself
To be with anybody...
(Computer boy!)

I fell in love with the man of the future
I've got a thing for my laptop computer
I'm so in love with the man of the future
The only one who brings me joy is my computer
I fell in love with the man of the future
I've got a thing for my laptop computer
I'm so in love with the man of the future
The only one who brings me joy is my computer

The only one who brings me joy is my computer
The only one who brings me joy is my computer boy

Trivia

  • The full song was released on Spotify before the day it was released.
  • Poppy uploaded a video teasing the song a week before it was released, however it was deleted after the song was released.
  • Poppy, at one of her most recent interviews with Zach Sang, explained the meaning behind the lyric, "I want your floppy disk to be my hard drive". She states that that lyric came from the heart, and that it actually refers to memory. "You need memory to remember things", Poppy aggregates. With some more comments from the interviewer, she finally concludes saying that while a floppy disk is temporary, a hard drive is permanent.[1]
