The Lyrics

You know what banking call centres are like....the spoken bit in the middle of this reminded me of the numerous useless options you're given when phoning up, and which eventually drive you insane and cause you just to hang up - and all without talking to a real person.....
I need someone, a person to talk to,
Someone who's real - a human, not a machine,
Not a machine!

It looks like I'm stuffed, I'm drowning in credit,
It could be tough, raising my limit,
But kids I'm skint,
And there's nothing for it....

So I'll just call the bank and get a new loan,
Call 'em up on the telephone,
But they'll screw me around, drive me out of my mind,
They'll make me mad, they do it all the time
Yeah yeah
They screw me all the time
Yeah Yeah......

I hope you know this call is recorded for training and monitoring...
Oh yeah?
But don't get so distressed... your personal details will not be given to any third parties.

Now press 1, 1, 1 for enquiries
2, 2, 2 for you bank statement
3, 3, 3 for our loan sharks
4, 4, 4 - need a credit card?
5, 5, 5 - tinny music now!
6, 6, 6 no real people here
7, 7 just a bunch of answerphones and
8, 8 don't forget we're charging you at
9, 9, 9 quid a minute now, so
10, 10, 10, 10 - hold the line hold the line hold the line hold the line....

Guess I'll just hang up, think I'd rather be skint,
But the damn call centre doesn't get the hint,
They call me back, God they're so unkind,
They call me back, yeah they do it all the time
Yeah yeah
They screw me all the time
Yeah yeah
They do it all the time (screw me all the time....)
