The Lyrics

Kids! What's the matter with kids today....
We all signed up for cell phones
On the big family home plan
We got minutes for a low rate
Rules didn't understand
My children with each other
Talk almost incessantly
I was stupid when I trusted
They knew it wasn't free

Broke from my daughters
The monthly bills are high

They burned out ten batteries
I lived with that yapping noise
Ditzy teens were calling at all hours
Polling fashions and boys
Those damn things took over
We almost had to sell the place
That small thing our new age toy
Became glued to my children's face

Broke from my daughters
The monthly bills are high

We ended up with a giant bill
I took both the girls aside
And I laid down the law and said they must pay
In life there's no free ride
They agreed they would get a job today
And pay the bill somehow
But of course they'd have to get some wheels
I pay car insurance now

Broke from my daughters
The yearly bills are high
Broke from my daughters
rrrrrriiiiingggggg

Once a phone man, always a phone man. Sounds like the kids have joined the cell elite, he said flabbily.

Cell phones must be an acquired taste - I hate the friggin' things. I get a crick in my neck from trying to stay in the 'best reception' position... Good parody tho'!
