The Lyrics

Connect to "Biz"..the amber way
Out a' style to file..thru white..past Labor Day
Info..don't cost a penny..from the old directory,
Flip and skip, save cash and lip, al-pha-bet-ic'lly,
Al-pha-bet-ic'lly..

Try the yellow pages in your old phone book
Save frustratation tears,
The best place to look..
Large ads and bigger digits in it's yellow nook
Avoid the fuss,
Or a need to cuss,
Worth the time it took..
To go and check those yellow pages
In your old phone book

So easy, just look and see
At the best invention since sliced bread, there'll be
When number needs have risen, helps out efficiently,
God bless the yellow pages..ultimate simplicity,
Please take..this tip..from me..

(And) Try the yellow pages in your old phone book
Saves frustrated tears,
One great place to look..
There's ads and bigger digits in it's yellow nook
Avoid the fuss,
Or a need to cuss,
Worth the time it took..
Just go and check the yellow pages
In your old phone book

Now, the whole household is cheering
Dad's stopped his profanity..
He's usin' yellow pages..in..that old..phone..book,

Connect to "Biz".....

Another one of those simple, effective, non electronic technologies that seems doomed to disappear. Appreciate the Yellow Pages while you can.

Fine retro-parody, AFW! Those books are still useful for children sitting at table, and will be if an EMP detroys all electronics except landline phones.
