I’d Like to Buy Magnetic Tape

To the tune “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”

I’d like to buy magnetic tape
To store my data on.
I’d like to know how much to store
Before the room’s all gone.

I know that tapes have density
To measure bits per inch
And forty million characters
Can be stored in a pinch.

But what else do I need to know
About this half-inch tape?
Like speeds and lengths and code and such
And how much is the freight?

That’s the way it is.
I just need to know more.
So just tell me the score.
That’s the way it is.
