The Lyrics

You know someone like this, don't you?
I like keepin' my cell phone on
Playin' my favourite song
I hope it goes off while I'm headed home on the subway.
Attention's the name of the game,
and some guys give a display like it's their claim to fame.
I always find that I'm upsizing
with my phone accessorizing
So you'll be impressed every time that someone calls me

I'm a ringtone cowboy
Leave it there on my desk, give my workplace a music show.
I'm a ringtone cowboy
I divert extensions of people I don't even know
To hear some music over my phone.

Well, it's not long till I reset
and I change the song over the net
I'm cool because I'm thirty plus, but my phone's playing Green Day.
And I dream of the things I'll do
Like the Star Wars theme and Britney Spears and Eminem too.
I guess my friends think I'm surprising
with a reportoire comprising
of bands that I've seen when I'm bored and watch MTV.

I'm a ringtone cowboy
Leave it there on my desk, give my workplace a music show.
I'm a ringtone cowboy
I divert extensions of people I don't even know
To hear some music over my phone

I'm a ringtone cowboy
Like my phone's a license for putting on a music show
I'm a ringtone cowboy
I'm inflicting my taste on the people I don't even know
I'm clever 'cause I own a phone.
