The Lyrics

Everyday, we see the ads
For the cell phones
Dorky lookin' guy, yeah
Walkin' around everywhere, always askin'
That question then

All the ads are just the same
Different places
He will always say

Oh, can you hear me now?
As I walk past this cow
Yeah, this company's at stake, so
Can you hear me now?
Oh, can you hear me now?

Probably no one on the line
He fakes talking to them all the time
And through it all, he annoys everyone
But he thinks it's fun

He must get paid a lot
To do that
Sayin' all day long:

Oh, can you hear me now?
As I walk past this cow
Yeah, this company's at stake, so
Can you hear me now?
Oh, can you hear me now?

Oh, can you hear me now?
As I walk past this cow
Yeah, this company's at stake, so
Can you hear me now?
Oh, can you hear me now?

Oh, can you hear me now?
As I walk past this cow
Yeah, this company's at stake, so
Can you hear me now?
Oh, can you hear me now?

Change the channel
Or put him on mute
Yeah yeah yeah

Everyday I sit down and see it, Can you hear
Me now?
Can you hear me now?
Me now?

Oh, can you hear me
Oh, can you hear me now?

I always thought that commercial is awful in many ways. Who wants to be reminded of all the times their stupid cell phone got bed reception? Plus that idiot actor looks like Elvis Costello. And if you are unfortunate enough to work for that company, guess what you get to hear all day?

The pacing was a bit off, but it was funny nonetheless... Being a Verizon customer, I totally relate to this one... lol

I agree that the pacing was off, especially in the chorus. I'm voting 3-4-4.

Didn't much care for it. And yes, it was hard to follow. 3 4 5.

Not only can I hear that geeky twerp (again!) but if he don't knock off that crap and shut his stupid yap someone is going to stick his Verizon up where the sun don't shine! I'm so happy to see that I ain't the only person fed up with that annoying TV ad. Funny parody, it ROX!
