Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Here I sit in my car, broken down and stranded
Filled with despair, and hopelessness because..
I've got one thin dime, ten cents from empty handed,
By a place where a phone booth once was, Oh...

Just A Dime,
Phone calls were Just A Dime
Back once upon a time,
Like yesterday..

Ten cent cost,
A dinosaur that's lost
For phone calls all across
The U S A

Cells are here,
Uncouth phonebooth's are disappearing
Stick it in your ear!
Progress...who for ?

A paradox, cause I'm
Not into "Techy Time"
Phone calls should be a dime,
Just like before...

Cells are here,
Uncouth phonebooth's are disappearing
Stick it in your ear!
Progress...who for?

Not into "Hi-Tech" time
A mini "Blue" or "Lime"
Wish phone calls for a dime
Could be...once...more.

I recently watched "The Big Sleep" with my teenaged son. He watched Bogie put coins in one of the three coin slots and said, "They had a different slot each for nickels, dimes, and quarters?" I'll have to show him this parody.
