The Lyrics

I'm sure this has happened to at least everyone with a phone. Though maybe not to the same extent...
Television's busted, got no knowledge here
Nothing else I had to do today
Want to get this fixed, though that involves a fear
Making a proper phone call? That's pain
Pushing through the robot-led directory
Doesn't do too much to my poor brain
But it's when to get a proper human geek
They give me an inordinate wait

They've got me stuck, when will someone
Relieve, relieve my pain?
They've got me stuck, just want someone
To free, to free my brain

'Bout half an hour-ish since they let me know (know)
My call's important, but I'm not sure that's so (so)
'Bout half an hour, 'bout half an hour
Since my ass got put on hold
Makes me mad, got put on hold

Ev'ry single minute they add to my wait
Only increases my damn sole pain
Can't just sit down while they drag out this
I've lapped my house six times, hurts to pace

They've got me stuck, driving me nuts
Song needs, song needs to change
They've got me stuck, the hold song sucks
Ears bleed, ears bleed, such pain

Close to an hour since the 'bot let me know (know)
That they'll soon sort it, the word "soon" was a joke (joke)
Close to an hour, close to an hour
Since my ass got put on hold
I'm so mad, got put on hold

Tons of ads to push a bullshit sale on me (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Not convincing, I gotta say
Once I have got the thing I want
Those feels, those feels might change

But sev'ral hours waiting for the damn phone (phone)
To have somebody pick up? That really blows (blows)
Said sev'ral hours, yes, sev'ral hours
Since my ass got put on hold
Too many hours, my hand's cramping, you know (know)
Been switching off, but now the pain is in both (both)
Too many hours, too many hours
Since my ass got put on hold
So damn mad, got put on hold

Seriously, though, if I'm on the phone for any length of time, I'm going to start wandering around the house and switch hands every ten minutes. The hand cramps are the second biggest reason I don't like using the phone, number one being "Not being able to see the other person doesn't do wonders for my Aspergian ability to misread verbal cues".
