The Lyrics

As sung by the father of a 14-year-old girl
Isn't it strange?
She just goes on and on about nothing
Yakking away
I don't understand
Talking for hours at a time
Sometimes she forgets the bill is mine
Something is wrong, as she chatters on
Talking to the friend she has across the street so now I say

Hey, get off the phone now!
You've been on there since three o'clock this afternoon
Hey, get off the phone now!
Couldn't cost me more if you had called the Moon

I just don't know
Why she doesn't go see her in person
That's how it goes
Something I just don't get
So she's running her mouth once again
Talking to one of her closest friends
As I stand right here, and I stare at my watch
How much longer can she go on before I yank that cord right from the wall 'cause now I say

Hey, get off the phone now!
Couldn't you go see her face to face instead?
Hey, get off the phone now!
Are you gonna be on there until you are dead?

Hey, get off the phone now!
Is the bill you're running hard to comprehend?
Hey, get off the phone now!
Doesn't this friend of yours have A-I-M?

I think I'm gonna lose my mind
Time is money and my money is her time
Talks to people at lengths I can't afford
I swear this needs to end before they cut off service so I say

Hey, get off the phone now!
How much longer can this call go on?
Hey, get off the phone now!
The distance between you is only one street long!

Heh, I'm sure many fathers know the feeling... I remember when I discovered the phone for the first time

Have you seen my "Hang Up the Cell Phone Now"? Yours is different enough to get a good rating.
