The Lyrics

This One Has Been Recorded, Click Here Enjoy "My Cell Phone Was Out of Minutes" !
My cell phone was out of minutes,
and my Neon had lost all four wheels.
'bout lost my mind, it was nowhere near nine,
and the heat was almost unreal.

When I chose this two year phone plan
signed down my name quickly where X marked the spot.
and the sales man smugged covering his whole mug, I guess
he knew I'd be in a rut:

I felt just like a puppet, because I didn't have a clue,
If I had glared I'd be aware,
Of all the charges there too.
Yeah, it's true that I am well employed,
but now I'm feelin' quite screwed.
'cause as this story unfolds, fell in a hole
and now that darn bill is past due

Those jerks said, "You're stuck sonny, we'll play a violin,
'Cause you'll pay that debt, that isn't a threat,
with your contract we'll always win."

So now I am always broke and can't pay for my car,
'Cause I've been duped in Florida and corp'rate left me charred
I'm gettin' thin and all I've ever owned's been pawned or sold,
I blew a fuse, and anger took it's toll!

The next day I worked twelve to eight and I tried to save some dough.
Went across to the dealership and this man put on a show.
And then rolled my pen right on the line and I guess this part I missed.
When I left the bumper fell off,
he said no warranty exists.

Yeah, my lucks diminished, I had thought,
"I can't get any worse: I'm done."
But my life isn't fair my dear
it's like I create debt for fun!"

House off of a trail: tons of fun.
The darn thing fell apart and my credits gone.
Ghosts were in the attic wearing my clothes
Chantin' through day light , "Go, Dave Go."

It's then that I had fled cause' I felt like I'm dead meat
and a priest thought he could fool me and chase those ghouls down the street
Then I said "Pastor, I'm not stupid
no, I won't pay you or your friends"
The new neighbors bought that old dude's pitch
and the ghosts left, I can't win

Out on the house, no tons of fun
The cell phone bill had left me feeling done
Dealer pulled one on me n' I still owe,
David now your life must blow, it blows

A few parts were random, like the whole priest and ghost thing.... I guess it fits in with you having a bad day, but it was just really weird. I loved, "When I left the bumper fell off, he said no warranty exists." that was a really funny line!!!

Thanks Everybody . . .I'll be reading others work later tonight (long day at work) . .. Matty. . .this wasn't about one bad day buddy, it's about bad luck as a whole. . .and I'd say buying a house that is haunted and falling apart is pretty bad luck-not random, but I know you loved it, I heard your reaction last night:)

I hope my recent two year contract doesn't end like this, lol. Great recording and I know that must have been a "devil" to perform. Loved the accent. 555.

555 - OK, NOW record with the Guitar Hero III [metal] version of TDWDTG.

I was quite confused with where this was going. Your title and first 2 verses imply a Cell Phone story...then the subsequent details just threw me off...can't say that it wasn't written well, but the transitions weren't smooth. I haven't read all of your works,due to lack of time or lack of song knowledge, but I wonder how you would fare with a story-telling song that had a consistent plotline with a big conclusion. (bla bla bla...sorry)

Probably fairly well I would hope Agri--unfortunately those are dream songs but I'd love to take some on (Devil Went Down to Georgia isn't my genre. . .but it was fun despite the difficulty of the performance)
Matthias - February 15, 2008 - Report this comment
I don't really have much more to say. I get that this song is about having Bad Luck, and you should be happy that you're the first person not to do this song about going into battle against another person. I guess that just means you're thinking outside the box which is what I love about your work. BUT I have to agree with Agrimorfee and say that the transitions were a tad forced, but all in all a great parody my 'free-nd'.

(ABC4) I didn't have any problem with where the story went. Clearly, to me anyway, the parody is about a man named Dave whose lucky absolutely, positively SUCKS. Hope it's not based on a true story. Even if it isn't, have some 5's to ward the bad luck away ;)

Thanks TCOP/Bob, Karma for you!

(ABC4-M) See above! Favorite line was "it's like I create debt for fun".

Extremely clever and well done. Loved how you got the violin in there. Fave Line.

Those jerks said, "You're stuck sonny, we'll play a violin

I like this alot and you sung it quite fine. Wish I had a singing voice - I'd do some of my own.

(ABCM) I like it Dave. that is a hell of an OS, from experience, and I loved your original take on it - and how come they're always two year plans anyway? - 555

I commented on your recording somewhere (maybe on badave), one of my favorite OSes, a great title sub, and a fun song! Great job with this one.

Nice job Dave. I didn't mind the storyline. I saw it as an odyssey of bad luck. I liked the way you got "violin" in there as well.

ABC- I just played a version of this OS on Guitar Hero 3 the other night. Now when I play, I'll be thinking of this version. Very funny and well done, Dave.
