The Lyrics

Thanks to 2nz and Arwen who pointed out the flaws of my laziness (Next time check the pacing before submitting)
Phone me up
Starting to eat
Dinnertime
Has turned rancid
With persistence
All the phone calls repeat
I scream “Damn!
“Don’t need drills!
I’m supplied!”

My cell phone chimes when I’m in the bath
I make the carpet all soggy
A sales pitch from Tech Fred on their staff
“Take a hike! I don’t want to learn Jive!”

They all call me at supper
When my teeth take a bite
Ringing phones drive me crazy through my meal
Selling electric covers
I am far from polite
Throw the phone at the wall
When they call… Me at supper!!!

Phone’s misplaced
I hear it ring
Checked the couch
Found it buried
I say, “Whazzup!”
And their computer speaks
”You want thrills?
Try our grill
It’s divine”

They call me in the shower
Getting ready to date
I swear these companies are like the devil
They ring me by the hour
Till I’m screaming with hate
“Please stop breaking my balls!
At the mall… I’m a shopper!”

Hanging up
They’re selling mops
”Scraps off rust
Waxes trophies!”
My resistance
To buy all of their junk
Doesn’t seem
To sink in
To their minds

Down at... The fitness center
Call with surveys for Sprite
Should have silenced the ringer on my Revol
They are worse than Dementors
In the books Rowling writes
Their career makes me bawl
Please don’t call… It’s disaster!

They called me at supper
In bed with my lover
When I’m fighting Bowser
Calls fill me with terror

I'm surprised there are no comments, on a preliminary read, it reads well, I'll give it a good in depth comment in Ages of course

(Ages2) I'd probably sympathise a bit more about the topic if I was bothered to turn my phone on more than once a month. Great parody, 555!

AGES...this read better than the original parody you posted, so good job for cleaning it up. Not super "annoying" to me, as it's not something that I personally relate to...(I'm a lucky one, I guess)...but nice work on a favorite old OS.

(AGES) Brrrrrrrrring! Brrrring! "Hello?" "Sir? Can we interest you in buying a hilarious parody?" 1-800-555-POINTS! P.S. My security code says BUX. PPS I think you meant "scrapes" not "scraps".

Funny parody, Matty. These jerks do seem to call right when you're in the middle of something. BTW...do you mind if I call...I'm selling magazines...

Great Tech Fred reference, always a plus. Decent song, didn't have me rolling on the floor, but well written

The last stanza was particularly funny Matty, I loved the way this flowed with TOS, not that you don't try to do that regularly, but this one was particularly well fit to TOS. . ."They are worse than Dementors In the books Rowling writes" and the Bowser line were my favorites. While my telemarketers are generally asking to expand my car warranty (it's a 94 that's beyond owned) and car insurance (if they could save me money, they couldn't afford to call me) the ones you choose were unique and different, thanks for bringing back Ages. . .This (seems) like it will become an annual thing--I hope so, and do it this way next year too--the whole random thing, this particular decade/topic combination was a phenomenal way to end the competition.

Certain I read this before. Nice work with the original, Matt. I also appreciated the Rowling lines and the Bowser reference. Extra points, and definitely a completely different take on things than my song. Your ability to keep the original rhymes intact is always impressive.
