The Lyrics

TEXTIN’ THE DAY AWAY

Let me tell you ‘bout a craze
Started back in techie days,
Now I’m going through a phase
Textin’ the day away.
Cheaper than to make a call
Everyone can have a ball
Textin’ the day away.

We’re textin’, textin’
No limit on what you say
We’re textin’, textin’
We’re textin’ the day away.

Here’s a girl who aint no fool
She just likes to play it cool
Now she spends her day at school
Textin’ the day away
Laughing at the things she says
And it seems she has no cares
What she does she does with flare
Textin’ the day away.

We’re textin’, textin’
No limit on what you say
We’re textin’, textin’
We’re textin’ the day away.

Let’s text a while
Push up
Push down
Push up
Push down
Wanabe
Now start
Now text
We’re textin’ the day away.

Here’s a boy who knows his trade
He knows when he’s got it made
He will never be afraid
Textin’ the day away
Wow, you ought to see him go
Hittin’ digits high and low
What he says we’ll never know
Textin’ the day away.

We’re textin’, textin’
No limit on what you say
We’re textin’, textin’
We’re textin’ the day away.

Let’s all go
Push up
Push down
Push up...etc

Good. Innovations like texting have no social or medical pre-evaluation. They exist because they are cool enhancers of the bottom line. Meanwhile, addicted pedestrians and public transit riders are in their own little worlds, unavailable to real people.

I was in a Citibank, making a large-sum wire transfer to Italy. I first had to fill out a large form. Then I gave it to the teller, a young woman, to transfer the data to the computer. She gave me the printout to check over before she sent it out. But she had been multitasking my job with personal texting done with many a smile. The printout was all wrong. I had the jerk fired on the spot.

you skipped a line in the first verse that's the only reason the pacing gets a 4 instead of a 5 final score: 455
