Dated Song Lyric -> Latest Entries

Randy Travis', "Better Class of Losers"
The dated Lyrics:
I need friends who don't pay their bills on home computers
Why They're dated:
In the early '90s, the Internet was quite a long way from becoming what it is now, and even so was considered a luxury back then. Now, well, I hope friends who pay their bills on smartphones or tablets are okay, since pretty much anyone who doesn't pay their bills on "home computers" these days now uses one of the aforementioned devices.
