The Lyrics

working at a university, I see alot of students....
I've got my cell phone planted in my ear
I'm walking cross the boulevard, am I still clear?
I'm late for class, what are you doing now?
Hello--I can walk and talk too, wow

I just have to watch for cars
Wouldn't want to get mowed down
I love to hold my cell phone
When I'm walking all around
Don't have anything to say
It just seems the thing to do
I can hear you clearly, can you hear me too?

Now class is over and I'm at the store

I'm buyin' bread, I know this really is a bore
I've got to get some shampoo for my hair
Hello--You're breaking up, are you still there?

Are you going out tonight?
yeah, I guess I'll see you then
But I'll have my phone here with me
If we want to talk again
Now I've really got to go
cause my ear is turning blue
As always, it's been great talkin
to you

Good job, Royce. The first couple verses struck a chord.

good job Royce.....both attending AND working at a college, I too see many people with cell phones (including myself)

Lets give cell phone users their own country....maybe Madagascar. Then they can walk around with their hands permanently attached to their ears, babble mindlessly as loud and as long as they want, and we won't have to deal with their BS.

I use a cell phone because of free long distance, and if I'm in New York and my family's in CA they can call me, and it'll be the cheapest "local" call ever ;-) Great song idea!

lebeiw15--in answer to your question, I work in the art department of the university--it's a barn, actually; that explains why I'm so whacky, perhaps

Decent, I'm picturing a video for this.
Phil Alexander - June 12, 2003 - Report this comment
I think it's a bit unrealistic: surely the vast majority of these calls are *much* more banal and content-free ;-) Is there going to be a sequel, something like "On the train" to the tune of the Ozzy's "Crazy Train"?

Royce - Saw your question on the Messageboard about getting this song moved to your "Author Page". Good job. 5's. If you correct your name & re-post it I'll vote & comment on it again, too.
