The Lyrics

I'm at badave.com as always.
Lost my Signal
Right before I got to tell you
Good night, Good night
Thought I hung up, not true
Please don't be blue

I really think I need to get myself a new one
Oh but then again my stupid contract's nowhere near done
Throw it far
I hope it hits the stars

Drop it, Lost it, Stole it, Beat it
Come on Throw it, Toss it, Eat it (continues in background)
Sit on it maybe
Lose it on some long safari

No damn signal
Now I'll throw it in the toilet
My cell phone just isn't fair
I guess I really should have read
I'm stuck with it I dread

I thought I heard a cow, but no that's my phone's humming
It's going gone, I'll guess for now I'll just be bumming
It'd be fine
Oh won't somebody steal this phone of mine

Knock it, Kick it, Flush it, Stomp it
Come on Bop it, Sock it, Bomb it (continues in background)
It drops calls on me daily
I'm sick of it frankly
I really want to lose it lately
I really really hate it greatly

Another parody tribute to me Dave... Damn! Sure it's about an awful cell phone, but we know what triggered this idea in your mind. Which reminds me I tried calling you yesterday, but you never picked up. You need to stop playing Mario Party and start being social again. I don't know the OS, and the computer I'm using at school doesn't have sound, but I'll listen to it for the contest. (Hopefully you picked a listen-able Dolly Parton song, not like your Skyhooks, and Fleetwood Mac rounds).

Very good spoof of T-Mobile and all other bovine-sounding cell phone providers.

Wow... A 60's Dolly song... How old is this chick? Anyways.... This was a very good parody, and like I said I can totally relate to the meaning behind this song. This is actually a pretty good OS too, very Motown sound to it.

(Artistry) 555 bars for BAD. If phone companies actually made phones...instead of cameras/music players/messengers/games/etc....maybe some of these things wouldn't happen. But then, Dave would have to find something else to parody (not that he'd have a problem with that)

(Artistry) What a weird tune coming from Dolly....must have been trying for Dusty Springfield's sound. Pretty good parody, Dave...the song's structure made this very hard to build LOL-level jokes on, methinks.

(Artistry) All that 'Drop it, Lost it, Stole it, Beat it' stuff reminds me of Technologic by Daft Punk. Considering the topic of the parody, that's not surprising. Anyways, not as great as most of your work, but still pretty good nonetheless.

I liked it Dave...what's that ?...Oh...I LIKED IT DAVE...
Like Agri said...limited OS didn't give you all that much to work with, but stll...great job.

(Artistry) If only cell phones could operate on the BADP Network. Enjoyed this one, even more because I worked at Sprint for nine years.
