The Lyrics

When I'm sitting down to dinner
After being the breadwinner.
Well, I guess that's just the way modern life goes.
They always call I pick it up my anger grows.
Yes it grows

They want me to tour a timeshare
Or join a health club if I dare
A new extended warranty on my car.
When they want to do a survey they've gone too far
They've gone too far

I can't stand those telemarketing calls
I can't stand , I can't stand sales pitches
Can't stand those telemarketing calls
I just hate, I hate interruptions

Put me on your do not call lisr
This is a request I insist
So they won't invade my precious privacy
'Cause if they call me once again their ass is grass.
It is grass

Can't stand those telemarketing calls
I can't stand , I can't stand sales pitches
I can't stand those telemarketing calls
I just hate, I hate interruptions
(Telemarketing calls)

As a former telemarketer, I have to admit, your parody makes a good point! Sometimes those calls do suck! :)

When I was a telemarketer, I didn't realize how annoying they were. Sorry..:D Liked the song.

When I was a telemarketer, I said, "Lots of people hate their jobs, but everybody hates my job!" Working at Sears beats telemarketing -- at least there, the only person who curses at me is my boss! (As opposed to this site, LOL)
