Here are the words to the rap (written by Katie Dickerson, age 14, part of GMBD's third generation):
It's a LapTopWrap
With a flap and a strap
Lined with cushy bubblewrap
It's so easy it's a snap!
Can't you see it's really cool
For your home or for your school?
It's a super cute tool
Don't you drop it in the pool!
Take it with you on the run,
In the rain or in the sun.
You can give it to your mum
Helps her get the job done.
And it fits well on your lap,
Holds your laptop like a trap
Makes your feet start to tap
To the LapTop(W)Rap!
