Silver Or Gold (an Instafilk)

Well, semi-insta.  I was in a major mall yesterday, abruptly encountered a Major Line (very neatly organized, mind you, but a Major Line), and was trying to figure out what was going on when I realized that I was passing the Apple Store.

The filk trigger, however, didn’t hit till this morning, when I caught a snippet of a morning talk show in which the co-hosts were discussing this very issue…and proudly showing off their new toys, one in each color.  The first verse was automatic; the second took just a few minutes to settle.

Silver or gold, silver or gold,
Ev’ryone wishes for silver or gold;
Don’t you deny that it’s true,
You with your iPhones so shiny and new…

Silver or gold, silver or gold,
Doesn’t much matter to me;
When the time comes for my upgrade,
I’ll take the one that’s free!
