The Lyrics

I this parody loses one customer for these people, it's worth it.
Another call from ATT
They've got you on their "pester" list today
When you say no- they won't let go
They'll nag you till you come around and pay
It's all a scam
The way they sell
You'll get the bill to find you're in phone hell
That's what it is
There's nothing true
Made up some catchy gimmick they now quote to you

They just call and then they slam you
They got balls, just see how much they dare
They just call and then they slam you
And they add you to their daily sales chart

The price is high, but they just lie
You get their pitch at any time of night
You've got a voice, you have a choice
There's Bells, Verizon, Sprint and MCI
You might as well not even yell
The telemarketers don't hear a word
It's what it is
What can you do?
Just hang up rudely, they won't get a clue

They just call and then they slam you
They got balls, just see how much they dare
They just call and then they slam you
And they add you to their monthly sales chart

You can find us and slam us if you care

Yes, I get these calls as well. Nice job.

Since the National Do Not Call List was activated, it's gotten better. We got one call, though. I mustered up a dreadful. Arnold accent, and replied,"Ve're on zee list!". Man was that telemarketer ever apologetic. If they get caught calling you, do the phone police pay them a visit?

Phone companies are exempt from the do not call list. Gee, wonder why that is? A solicitor is exempt from it as well as long as they can show that they have had a business relationship with you within the last 18 months. You can request to be not called by this company at any time making it illegal for them to call you. Beware of the innocuous surveys that seem to call a lot of late. They can add you to their ok to call list claiming a business relationship.

Rick, I really liked this one. Nice job.

I like to say "Oooh, hold on, I'm really interested, I just gotta take something out of the oven!" Then I set the phone down for about ten minutes.

I usually give the telemarketer two minutes to try to hook me with their spiel and then I tell them to go to hell.

I usually threaten them with legal action and hang up. Of course, if Catherine Zeta-Jones were to step away from the T-Mobile commercials and actually call me, I wouldn't mind getting slammed by her. (mumbles something unintelligible and probably unprintable about Michael "He looks more like a corpse than Keith Richards" Douglas)

Good one, Rick. You just have to be careful that whatever you say isn't positive...they will take that as a 'yes' and slam you!

Recently, an moron from AT&T (ooops, that's an insult to moron!) asked why I did not want to subscribe. I replied, "It's because of your annoying and aggressive sales calls. I am tired of it. Please don't call or send anything here again. If hell freezes over and I want to do business with you, I'll call YOU." And their response was "Thank you for your comments. You know, we have a special offer on long distance this month..."

A good parody and a great subject to write one about. I definitely have received calls from telemarketers in the past, but I just always ask to be taken off their list! In addition, I now have Caller ID with Security Screen, so it is rare that many are able to get through, due to the fact then when someone calls from a centralized business phone system with extensions and no direct line, they are informed that if they are a solicitor, they must hang up! I may do a Stevie Wonder parody myself, or a parody of another song about telemarketing, this one was definitely creative and I voted 5 for funniness! I wrote eleven parodies on this site myself, go check some of them out if you'd like!

DahA, excellent. I've yet to be harrassed via my cell phone number, but by permanently stating this, I am dooming myself. So as I said, excellent.

Thanks everyone who commented. I'll be sending you all a card with a great offer to save on your long distance service.

Having been on the receiving end of one AT&T sales pitch too many, I can understand the feeling behind that parody much too well. 4-5-5 here...
