The Lyrics

Baby, can you hear me now?
Reception gets a little bad
Don't you know without land lines you're gonna hit a dead spot
And when I'm in one, I often get mad

I like my cell, this invention was good
Call lost! My cell phone ain't working like it should

Baby sometimes I'm so carefree
Cause the tower is by my side
Other times it seems that all I do is to redial
Because the signal is not bona-fide

I like my cell, this invention was good
Call lost! My cell phone ain't working like it should

If I am talking and you don't respond
I have no bars, and your voice is off the air
An analog line? Now that isn't fair!
Need to get digital so I'll get through, 'cause I have to
Oh, what would we do without them?
I'm wireless, just like everyone
Sometimes I rapid dial, long regretting
That I don't have a camera phone, it's fun!

I like my cell, this invention was good
Call lost! My cell phone ain't working like it should

I like my cell, this invention was good
Call lost! My cell phone ain't working like it should

I like my cell, this invention was good
Call lost! My cell phone ain't working like it should

I know I don't get around to everyone here. But this was excellent. I wanted to do this song, but couldn't come up with anything.
