"Find Me A Cell Phone Plan"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

He was sittin there, with phone in hand
Waitin for the weekend, to call his dad
It's sad to watch, his desparate plight
He's making all his phone calls in the dead of night
I asked him why he only called me after ten?
He said, "It costs me ten bucks every minute, man!"

"But if you find me a cell phone plan
And a phone with text messaging
Strong signal strength, even out of town
No asking 'Can you hear me now?'
Lots of minutes so I can speak
All day long, the entire week
We can talk in the day again
If you can find me a cell phone plan"

He showed to me, a bill so large
With taxes, processing fees and an overage charge
He ripped it up, said he'd like to be
In countryside where people are still roaming free
He said, "If there's any way I can
Could I get unlimited nights and weekends?"

Find me a cell phone plan
And a phone with text messaging
Strong signal strength, even out of town
No asking 'Can you hear me now?'
Lots of minutes so I can speak
All day long, even during peak
We can talk in the day again
If you can find me a cell phone plan

Find me a cell phone plan
And a phone with text messaging
Strong signal strength, even out of town
No asking 'Can you hear me now?'
Lots of minutes so I can speak
All day long, the entire week
We can talk in the day again
If you can find me a cell phone plan

I, personally, don't pay any attention to when I "should" be making calls...but this is still fabulous, Jeff! 5s...
Stuart McArthur - October 21, 2004 - Report this comment
Great Jeff! If he likes there are about twenty telemarketers trying to sell me cell-phone plans everyday who I would gladly point in his direction - 555

Good job, Jeff. I changed plans once, not reading the fine print which obligated me for two more years...they've been trying to collect for two years :-) 5's

Jeff, loved it, as always! Reminds me of Ryan, when he hears "can you hear me now" he says NO!

Another great job from Jeffaroo. And y'all who DKTOS, I've got it up (albeit temporarily) at
spaff.com/dktos
2nz - November 29, 2004 - Report this comment
DKTOS (and if I had speakers currently, I'd take Spaff up on that), but still reads excellently: the "a bill so large/overage charge" stanza was inspired man.

(SOTM) DKTOS - don't have a cell phone being as how I still appear to live mostly in the last century as far as cultural icons & doo-dads go...pretty good read...

"Cell phone plan" cannot be said as smoothly as "Birmingham", but this is a parody the phone companies richly deserve. -- MM

(ABC3F) God, I'm predictable. I thought oh goody, I can make a Calcutta telemarketers gag here, and then I saw that I already have - d'oh - therefore see above for same gag - nice work, Jeff

(ABC3) DKTOS, but great writing. Knowing that it's a country song, I could see Cledus T Judd doing this one.
Jeff Reuben - September 08, 2006 - Report this comment
Agri: Cledus did parody this song: Bake Me A Country Ham. Pretty funny stuff.
Red Ant - September 09, 2006 - Report this comment
(ABCF3) Wow, I think you set a record for the most DKTOS ever left on one song, heh heh. Not wanting to leave those five lame-ass letters here, I Limewired TOS. Too slow for my tastes, but the pacing/rhyimg is very good. I don't own/seldom use a cell phone, but I still got most of this.
