The Lyrics

(No, no, oh no)
I use my phone like there's no set limit
And all my friends live too far away
I have a problem, I just won't admit it
"Cause I'm on there, every single day

(Ooh yea) Runnin' up the phone bill
(Whoa-oh) Runnin' up the phone bill
I've got the notice to prove it

I thought long distance rates, were so cheaper
When I'm calling, France or Rome
I shouldn't have got, a cell phone and beeper
I just can't afford, this stupid phone

(Ah yea) Runnin' up the phone bill
(God damn operator, ya know you ain't cuttin' me off)
(I'm only gonna make one more call- yea)
Runnin' up the phone bill (yes I am- yea)

You know I, I find the phone company, can be brutal
When they offer, no flat rate
Sent a check, but I have no money
They cut my line, now I'm irate

(Oh god) Runnin' up the phone bill
(Hang up, hang up, it's running, yea)
Runnin' up the phone bill (come on, just one more call)

Runnin' up the phone bill (Oh no, god, no)
Runnin' up the phone bill (woo, woo)
Runnin' up the phone bill (ahh, ahh, no- aah, aah, no)
Runnin' up the phone bill (woo!)

(ABC) Fits very well with the pacing, funny thought of David Lee Roth screeching out the asides during the chorus. Good job.
