The Lyrics

Hello? Where are you? Have we've been cut off?
Now I'm very, very, very, very, very pissed
That's what I yelled, I'd like to call you back
If I paid up my telephone, yea, yea, yea
What? Final notice? I've already paid
Don't you remember I sent a check last month?
Fo-or, half the, full amount, that check must have bounced
Now I lost my deposit

CHORUS:
Too much, someone calls too much, to France and Amsterdam
Collect, long distance, and I have no savings plan
I look at the numbers called (I'm sure I don't know someone from Beirut)
And I am appalled (what the hell is 1-800-Lick My Boots?)
Oh, no, telephone bills, these rates can kill, I'm not paying for it
Oh, no, telephone bills, gives me the chills, I just can't afford it

O.K., so they're not listening, why won't they just let it slide
Until next week, next month, next year
Oh, ooo, I'll sit and pout, from the darkness of my house
Because my hydro's not paid too yea, yea, yea
(Chorus)

(ABC3-T) Writing parodies must not pay what it used to. Someone want to help Mike out with his bills? :-)

(ABC3) Very funny song from mundane lyrics! I especially liked the chorus, and how you used "distance" for Jeff Lynne's "ni-ights".

(ABC3-T) DKTOS, but it was very funny. I could see the same theme being used for a 'Beverly Hills' parody...not by me, of course.

(ABC3T) Excellent. 555

(ABC) Strangely enough, I was thinking the same thing as Conqueror...but this was great! I must admit I don't like it when people just write "Chorus," though...c'mon people, do some variation!

Great

(ABC3T) 1-800-Lick My Boots is a misprint - the last 't' was supposed to be a letter closer to the start of the alphabet - I know what I'm talking about because.....never mind - funny take on the OS Mikey - 555

(ABC3T) I LOVE this old OS and you did a great job with the parody here, Mikey! Sorry I missed it before. 555
Matthias - March 27, 2007 - Report this comment
I thought this was going to be a parody of Weezer's "Beverly Hills" for sure
Kristof Robertson - March 27, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3T) A great parody unfairly (IMHO) overlooked the first time. I love ELO, and am sorry it took me so long to find this. 555

(ABC) "1-800-Lick My Boots", LOL !!!
Red Ant - March 28, 2007 - Report this comment
(ABC3-T) I confess, "1-800-Lick My Boots" is my private "naughty" line. At least, that's what the pervs think: it's just a recording of my cat licking my old Red Wing work boots (1-800-PUSS-N-BOOTS was taken). Fun stuff, Mikey. Call 555...
