The IBM 704 was the first computer to sing a song. You can see how big this computer was in the image above. In 1961, the IBM 704 was programmed to sing the chorus of the song, "Daisy Bell" by Harry Dacre. You can hear its rendition in the YouTube video below…
Here is the chorus of Daisy Bell:
Give me your answer due.
I’m half crazy,
All for the love of you.
It won’t be a stylish marriage.
I can’t afford a carriage.
But you’ll look sweet,
Upon the seat,
Of a bicycle built for two.
