The Lyrics

The do not call list should be effective within a day or two on October 1, 2001.This means solicitors cannot call people on this list unless they are a charity.Here's my parody on this blessed event. Lets just hope they don't find loop holes.It has gotten so bad that some solicitors are calling from prisons.
They got heads like concrete,
Dialing what they're fed from the sheet.
I say: "Hey
Who is this?"
Go away.
You call me up and you really persist.
I say: "Hey
Not my game baby,
Don't you people have any shame?
Now get this straight, there's no debate,
What ya do before you made license plates?

Call right now baby,
Don't call right now.
Call right now baby,
Don't call right now.

Wish they'd get out of my face,
Call ID never gets a trace.
I said look:
You're so lame baby,
All you do is call up and flame.
I said: Whoa,
Now not so fast.
Why is it me you harass?
I said: shove,
Lord above,
I'll be glad when you, I'm rid of.

Call right now baby,
Don't call right now.
Call right now baby,
Don't call right now.

A slight goof on my part with the effective date in the comments. I only missed by two years. That should read October 1, 2003 not 2001. I get mixed up with metric time now and then. :D

Reminds me...I should get on that list. Good job, Guy! Esp the 'heads like concrete' line. :)

Yeah, it woulda been nice if the Do Not Call list were in effect two years ago.

Looks like they're trying to overturn it on "Freedom of Speech. (shaking head and sighing) As I see it, MY CHOOSING to include my PRIVATE line, (which I PAY to have and maintain and which rings so constantly with scam-n-spam calls as to prevent my using it for its intended purposes,) on a no-call list established by an act of legislation does not amount to congress having enacted a law that, in any way, abridges the right of the people to freedom of public political speech. But, I digress... Good job.

I've been following their efforts to overturn the law. One of the things they are saying is that it will put 10,000,000 people out of work. My God! 10 Million people making their living calling people on the phone every day? No wonder I get so many calls. This needs some regulation. I think that since this industry uses telephone time that we pay for they should be made to subsidise my phone costs since they call me way more than all others combined. Maybe then they would realize that since they have called my 100 times and got my voice mail 98 of these 100 tries they would realize that they are losing money calling me and give up and avoid the subsidiary fees. Until something like this is done these jerks will continue to use the 'brute force' method to make a buck.

My wife used to be a telemarketer, but I made an honest woman of her. Great job Guy.

My phone is strangly quiet today. By now I should have had at least five calls from telemarketers. I keep checking it to see if it is still working - LOL.
Melhi - October 01, 2003 - Report this comment
Guy, I'm glad someone said something! Mine, too! It usually rings almost constantly from 8 am to 10 pm, with a slight drop off in the afternoons when, I assume, telemarketers go for lunch. I should have had a dozen or so unavailable, blocked and uknown numbers clogging my ID, by now. These last few months, important numbers have been scrolled off the ID and the answering machine has been filled with recorded sales messages, such that our phone has been absolutely useless to us. The last "unavailable" call came at 8:23, last night. It's pleasantly weird. Oops, I had to type that "aloud"... it just now started ringing. The ID says "Dial America." I had several from them in the last week. But hey, it's almost 10am where I am and I've had only one. That's a HUGE improvement on the quality of my life... and with a little one home sick and trying to rest, the quiet couldn't have started on a better day. :) Ahhhhh.....

There is a number you can call if they violate the law. I would warn them one time not to call back and then I would use the number. Not sure what it is, I heard it on the news earlier and I thought they said it was an FCC number. Hope your little one get over the illness. I had the crud for about 10 days and am just getting over it. Knock wood, my phone still has not rung, but I keep checking it. I really had no idea just how annoying this was until this peace and quiet set it. I sure hope they do not overturn that law with some court order as they are trying to do. Still say regulation is the fairest way to go about it. I'm not for people being put out of work but this thing was beyond ridiculous.

I finally got my phone number in the 'do not call' list. I wonder if there is a waiting period, like they said? I haven't had a phone call from a soliciter this morning...yea....ahhhhh...quiet.

When I signed up for the 'do not call' list, I got this information, which should be helpful in cases where telemarketer break the law. 'Once you have registered, your phone number registration will be effective for 5 years. It will be illegal for most telemarketers to call you, and you will be able to file a complaint if a telemarketer does call you. The website www.donotcall.gov provides information about filing a complaint.'
