The Lyrics

Here's the original way I wrote it. Somehow the brain wouldn't allow me to type it out that way the first time......Forgive me for using Capital letters like they're going out of style...hmmm... Wonder what the parody penance is for that one ?
HEY-LLO -- HEY-EY-EY-EY-LLO
( what'da hell's wrong with this cell phone?)

GREY - CHEVROLET, HAUL AWAY, BILL TO PAY
PERFECT DAY- ME SAY HEY-EY-EY-LL NO
(what'da heck's wrong with this tracfone?)

WORK ALRIGHT - TIL I CALL SOMEONE
(day might come when me buy smartphone)
CRAP ANTENNA - SHIT FOR POWER, MAN
(day might come, grant me big fat loan)

DONE MISSED A CALL AGAIN,
DRIVING ME BANANAS
(day might come, blue-tooth in ear sewn)
DONE MISSED A CALL AGAIN,
GOT NO CALLING PLANNA
(day might come, get me slick ringtone)

LOSE-SIX CALL, SEVEN CALL - EIGHT'S MY HUNCH
(day might come, you won't see me moan)
TEN CALL, 'LEVEN CALL - TWELVE BY LUNCH
(day might come, you won't hear me groan)

AIN'T - AIN'T O-KAY-AY-AY - NO
(day might come, there won't be dead zone)
THEY - ON E-BAY, ANDALE, DON' DELAY
(day might come, soon they all be gone)

ON SUITABLE MONTH - ME WRITE DEAR SANTA
(sleigh might come, reindeer night she's flown)
MILK AND COOKIES - RED SUIT EXPANDA
(gay sprite come or he might send clone)

IT'S NO GUT, LEATHER BOOT,
STEPPED ON - CRUNCH
(day might come, rid pain from headbone)
GIVE HOOT, DON’T POLLUTE,
HATE WHOLE – BUNCH
(day might come, can of trash get thrown)

PAY - ME PAID WAY -AY - AY LOW
(day might come, sit on golden throne)
PLAY - ON BROADWAY, CABARET, PAY VALET
(day might come, dig up huge gemstone)

I'M JUST A SIMPLE MAN - WEARING OLD BANDANA
(day might come, few fine things me own)
LONG MISSED A GIRL I KISSED - DOWN LOUISIANA
(day might come, phone and eyes no roam)

MAY-GO... STAY-AY-AY-NO...
(take right thumb, hitch ride parts unknown)
SAY - WORDS TO SAY - AJANTE - WORLDS TO PLAY
HIT HIGHWAY - HAVE NICE DAY AY AY - O
(tail light bum, like E.T. - phone home)
