The Lyrics

I hear the phone ring
My friend is distracted by the TV
I check Caller ID
It's someone he knows
And so I'm

Running just as fast as I can
Dragging him along by the hand
Trying to answer it before they hang up
We find it in the kitchen and it's still ringing loudly
And I say

Pick up the phone now
You never know, the call might be for you
Pick up the phone now
Even though that ringtone is a catchy tune

The phone's ringing stops
I ask him why he didn't pick it up
But he only shrugs
I roll my eyes
And when I'm

Running just as fast as I can
Dragging him along by the hand
Trying to answer it before they hang up
Next time when that happens I'm just gonna stand there
And I'll say

Pick up the phone now
You never know, the call might be for you
Pick up the phone now
Even though that ringtone is a catchy tune

Great OS and clever parody, AND oh so true...

As the author of both "Pick Up the Phone" (to "Bad to the Bone") and "Hang Up the Cell Phone Now," I approve.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
