(tune: "Yesterday" with apologies to the Beatles)
[dedicted to all us smartphone addicts]
Yesterday my smartphone was very far away.
How much I missed it is hard to say.
Oh, I was sad all yesterday.
Suddenly its LCD screen failed for me.
Working again was not to be.
It hit the ground so tragically.
Why it had to drop I don't know, its hard to say.
I held it wrong, it worked before yesterday.
Yesterday I could not stay for all the day.
Before the end I had rushed away.
Before the store closed yesterday.
Why it had to crack, I don't know, now I must pay.
For its repair, happening yesterday.
Yesterday I got to the store but they had this to say,
"Your phone's still broke, so please go away.
We didn't finish yesterday."
Now I have to go to the store on another day.
I hope it's not a repeat of yesterday.
