The Lyrics

Please note that there is no pacing problems with the title.. the original lyrics in the chorus go "I turn to stone" so it matches with "turn off the phone". This parody is about my hatred for annoying cell phone users...
The city streets are full of them
(Attached to everyone)
And everyone has top five friends
(Turn it, please, turn it)
Ring tones that really hurt my ears
(The volume is up too high)
I don’t want to hear Britney Spears
This wireless world…

Turn off that phone, why do you drone, turn off that phone
Turn off that phone, when you drivin' home, it’s very wrong

You say your phone can surf the net
(Now you can download porn all day)
Just how pathetic can you get?
(Turn it, turn it, turn it)
In restaurants and theatres
(I see them everywhere I go)
There’s not much more I can endure
This blue tooth world…

Turn off that phone, it’s very prone, to make me groan
Lose that phone, you’ve become withdrawn, you’re too far gone
No more phone, leave it alone, turn off that phone!

Well, you’re on that damn phone even when you are home
And I’m making it known that you should turn off that phone
You've been on there so long and you’re babbling on
Please, just turn it, just turn it, just turn off that phone

The inane chatter everywhere
(Why do they yell and swear?)
Ignoring folks without a care
(Turn it, please, turn it)
Through all my anger and dismay
(Turn off that phone, turn off that phone)
I hope that you’ll come back some day
To the real world…

Turn off that phone, can’t you postpone, ‘til you get home?
Stupid phones, and their stupid tones, this can't go on
Always on, from dusk ‘til dawn, turn off that phone!

Turn off that phone, you’re on too long, I should have known
Hate those phones, I don’t have my own, I can't condone
Off that phone, your signal’s gone, TURN OFF THAT PHONE!!

You and Conquerer really don't like cellphones... This was a good parody the only compliant I had was "Turn It" read kinda odd, maybe like "Shut it" or something like that would have been better, but I still loved the parody and the original song, and the original artist. ELO rocks!!!

(Dec 2.0) Rock on, fellow cellphone-hater! And by 'rock on', I mean 'keep pelting rocks at those morons with the Britney Spears ringtone' ;).

(Dec 2) Matthias and I agree... how about "Burn it!" ?
stuart mcarthur - January 01, 2008 - Report this comment
(dec2.6) see (my lame gag) above...I agree, Mikey, if they could just get rid of the five top friends and Britney Spears ringtones, it sure would be a start

(DEC 2.6) If there was ever a Mikey Squirrel beating up Crazy Frog ringtone, I'd buy it! Greak stuff, Mikey...555

Another hateful mobile number... I remember the OS from first time around (IIRC I've got it on vinyl, still) - great write, Mikey. Incidentally, you may enjoy this one (my take on people who drive while on the phone): http://www.amiright.com/parody/90s/kevinbloodywilson1.shtml

Decathlon...eeek! Another swipe at we cell phone lovers. I'm sorry...if I'm annoying to you. Hee hee. If it's redeeming at all, I still have the decency to at least hold my phone when I use it...none of that blue tooth nonsense for me. AND...I'd never stoop to using Britney Spears for a ringtone...I've got ABBA, The Temptations, Ludacris...and everything in between. I know...you hate me now, don't you. Sorry...but everyone I know gets their own ring tone...it's only fair. =)

(DEC2) What's with the Britney hating:) I have P!nk on my cell home ironically which was mentioned in TCOP's phone parody. I applaud you just for doing a different group/style than the others so far in the contest. . .It's pacing is like 97%, but close enough to be recorded, and it's pretty funny. . .don't know how you and TCOP both ended up at cell phones.

Still not a fan of "Turn It", but a fan of the rest of this parody. I agree with my original comment pretty much, this is a great OS, and a kick-ass original band, ELO really needs to get parodied more.

(ABC) I still like it, no big lines so to speak--but still pretty good as a write. These vote threads aren't so bad when I'm already familiar with the song and I left pretty decent size comments initially.

(ABC) see above, twice - I read it to the OS playing this time and really loved the way you handled the pacing of that fast bit towards the end
Red Ant - June 10, 2008 - Report this comment
A well writen parody on a big pet peeve of mine. Bluetooths are worse because when someone is near you talking, I think a) they are talking to me or b) they have a mental condition. I think people go out of their way to find the most sh*tty, annoying ringtone they can. 555

(ABC4T) Mikey - You give good phone. I like this. Ofcourse all the numbers start with 555.
