The Lyrics

So, my boyfriend says, "get text messaging, and i'll message you all day how much i love you." so i got it, and suddenly, it is our only means of communication. sometimes when we are in the same room...he texts me. but that's only when he's not texting the rest of the free world...i'm beyond annoyed.
Thought such joy to my life it would bring
Now it's value I'm contemplating
How useful is text messaging?

My boyfriend
Said that all his love with it he'd send
But instead he's texting with his friends
My annoyance, it has no end

Why he cannot call...not at all
My phone won't ring
We're in the same car
His words are
Through messaging

Can't converse about a single thing
He's too busy with his phone, typing
Oh, how I hate text messaging

And we cannot talk, while we walk
Sorrow it brings
When I try to sleep
There's a beep
He's messaging

I miss days when we spent time talking
Not to mention joking, and kissing
I've lost my man to messaging

Let me be the first to say there's a real message here... My message to you is, "Great Job". 5-5-5.

Ah, but does he give good type....? ;-)

Merry, Merry...Sadly he does not...the other day he used the word "exsquisite." If you've read my parody, "bad conjugation," you can imagine that misspelled spelled words can really rub me the wrong way...

And thanks so much, Rod! I've not seen you around my work I really appreciate you stopping by!

I think I'd turn my phone off and see if he gets the message. Good job!

Normally I wouldn't advocate breaking all of someone's fingers, but.... *grin* Nice job.

Arwen - Yes, I miss the good old days when if you wanted to disrespect and ignore someone you loved you had to do it in person. Good parody, and when I get thru messaging these others folks I'll be sure to send you some 5's (just kidding, already voted).

Melhi, thanks for the idea...he's SUCH a boy never know what might happen if I grabbed one of his fingers!

You're back. And everyone seems to have beaten me to the texty punch-line. That's what I get for being late. Really fun read. At least it's still fun to put them phones on vibrate. ;c)

2nz...thanks for noticing that I wasn't really around much for a bit. It feels good to back, too...I'm still waiting for the HP inspiration, though...stay tuned...

Hi Arwen! I apologize for missing this one yesterday (no pun intended). Sounds like your boyfriend has a guys-with-gadgets case of interminable digital foreplay.....hmm, that doesn't sound quite right.....but this parody sure does! 555

Excellent job of putting a personal face on a problem that is probably fairly wide spread. Just be thankful that you have amiright as an outlet.

Thanks, John!! You're right about the's like therapy for me...I think it's actually safe to say I'm addicted...=)

Hey Arwen, how's it going? I had a nice Thanksgiving holiday last week, and I hope you did too.

Now, about this parody...I enjoyed it! I sometimes do text messaging with my cell phone, but not often. 5-5-5. :)

Hey, thanks, Serafina! I'm glad you had a good holiday! Mine was FABulous!

JamesQuah...funnily enough, in the time since I wrote this parody, I have become a manic texter, and get made fun of relentlessly for the fact that I cannot function without my phone in my hand. Ooops. =) Thanks!
