The Lyrics

When you pick up the phone
And solicitors are talking back
Give me a moment please to tame those vexing men
I know that you feel like your worst nightmares are coming true
You're full of disbelief, you put yourself on hold
When they wanna sell you their trash and you feel like you might cough up cash

Let me tell them not to call
They persist, they've got some gall
Interrupt so they don't have the chance to start a fight
If your ear has had enough
I can help you to get tough
If you're sick of telemarketers
Hang up the phone

When you pick up the phone
And a stranger wants to talk to you
You're thinking of giving in
And your mind is going dead
When they catch you while off your guard and
You're getting out your credit card

Let me tell them not to call
They persist, they've got some gall
Interrupt so they don't have the chance to start a fight
If your ear has had enough
I can help you to get tough
If you're sick of telemarketers
Hang up the phone

Cause there has always been scams over phone
And when it's over they'll try again
They'll try again

When you pick up the phone
And solicitors are talking back
Give me a moment please to tame those vexing men

Let me tell them not to call
They persist, they've got some gall
Interrupt so they don't have the chance to start a fight
If your ear has had enough
I can help you to get tough
If you're sick of telemarketers
Hang up the phone

Good job! I like a bit of Savage Garden :D I wrote a parody to the Animal Song ages ago... http://www.amiright.com/parody/90s/savagegarden11.shtml I like how the words rhymed with the words in the actual song sometimes. I hate telemarketers... Time to get tough...

You know, I am so proud of this parody. I did it at a very inane time in my life, and it turned out pretty darn well. Unfortunately, I haven't received a single comment since August. Of last year. It's stuff like this that makes depression the leading cause of teenage suicide in the United States.

I know how you feel. When I go, I'm going to blame everyone here on this website for not making me feel appreciated enough. Now just leave me alone, I have to go write more songs no one will hear.

*blink* Woa. Maybe I should vent my frustration more often - two and a half hours later, I'll have some sympathy. Sorry about your under-appreciation, Rick D. I'm going to go and appreciate some of your stuff now.

I liked it too; I know I voted (5-5-5) on it a while ago, but I guess I never commented on it.

Thanks "...", I basically thrive on comments. They're my source of absolute happiness. Who gave me 1's??

You're welcome, EmiLoca. I don't know who gave you ones; that person obviously has no life. I wish there was some way to remove it. This question has been asked before and I'll ask it again: If everyone votes 5s for pacing, what's the logic in one person voting 1 for pacing? I mean, if everyone agrees that a certain parody has perfect pacing, why would some stupid person vote 1? I can understand them voting 1 for "how funny" and "overall" if they don't like it, but for pacing? Gimme a break!
