The Lyrics

Cricket Wireless misued the song "Respect", causing an advertising insult that threatens tv viewers everywhere.
Insult!
Insult!
Insult!

[bunch of ringing sounds here]

All those stupid commercials
On tv are wrong
Playing my least favorite
Aretha Franklin song
And that company's your worst enemy
So Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks
Its ad campaign that I've to complain

Goin' Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks
Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks

The song "Respect" is what I hate
It's key pitches changed
Just like Wiis, only more irate
Irregularly arranged
Put a shame today to that green K
'cause Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks
You rule, Nextel. Guess what'll go to hell
There 'tis, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks
Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks

I did have service from AT&T
You got Verizon, you smiled with glee
Screw "R-E-S-P-E-C-T"
Since Cricket sucks, yeah Cricket sucks
It had gone too far
And leave a scar
On our towns galore

Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks
Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks
Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks
Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks
Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks
Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks, Cricket sucks

[bunch of ringing sounds here]

Insult!
Insult!
Insult!
It's stupid!
