The Lyrics

For The Longest Time

Woh, oh, oh, oh,
For the longest time
Woh, oh, oh
For the longest

I took you to dinner Wednesday night
Your cell phone rang in between each bite
What else could I do?
I sat there glaring at you,
But you kept yakking for the longest time!

I once thought that cell phones were the bomb
Now I hate them like Bush hates Saddam!
I just deplore them,
And at baseball games I throw them,
My team's been losing for the longest time!

I suppose they've saved a few lives
Ordered ahead
For pizza pies;
But when you start talking too long
I want to grab that phone
And just pound it to mincemeat!

Here's a choice that you have got to make--
I don't know how much more I can take--
At my insistence
You give up your free long distance
Or I'm going to leave you for the longest time!

Woh, oh, oh, oh,
For the longest time
Woh, oh, oh
For the longest

Then last week when "Idol" was on
You dialed all night
(I could be wrong....)
At the movies if I see it's on
I'll take it to the john
And I'll see how it flushes

Please don't think that I oppose free speech
But it spoiled our picnic on the beach
You videophoned me
Pictures of our sliced baloney
I've got to tell you it's "So long" this time!

Woh, oh, oh, oh,
For the longest time
Woh, oh, oh
For the longest time

ęBob Gomez 2003

Open up a cell phone at Yankee Stadium, and you'll hear a chant of "Put down the phone! Put down the phone! Put down the phone!" Then they'll throw your phone onto the field. With you still holding it.

My sentiments exactly. d;:^)

"At my insistence / You give up your free long distance / Or I'm going to leave you for the longest time!" Excellent!

I love this one. Those things are the "new cigarettes". We also like to mock Jilly Bowl.

YES! Very nice. We're doing this song in my a capella group, so I thought I'd check out what parodies have been done of it. You get fives from me.

It was ok but I've seen better. It was funny but didn't fit the rhythm that well. Not the greatest. Although i am a really tough reviewer. Sorry. By the way, neminem, I just went to my school's a cappella concert and they sang that. Is the nam of your group West A Cappella (or WAC)?

I really love Billy Joel! I have collection of his CDs and videos. I'd love to go caca on Jilly Bowl!
