The Lyrics

Inspired originally by my daughter . . . .
It's gonna cost me - yack yack on...
Do you have to reel on in reels? - yack yack on...
Do you wanna know, know what it's gonna cost me? - yack yack on...
You only wanna hear the actual calls that you're making...- yack yack on...
You, it's you and them....

And if you only would
Use your mobile you sod
and not access WAP in my places
You're running up a load
You're running up the bill
Be running up to it's ceiling
Hey, if you only would, oh....

You know it's gonna cost me - yack yack on...
I see you creep with bullshit lies - yack yack on...
Unaware I'm seething like thunder - yack yack on...
Ooh, I am plundered in my heart - yack yack on...

Is there so much spate for the ones you love?
Bell them, to just natter, don't you?
You, it's you and them
It's you, and me I'm just unhappy

And if you only would
Use your mobile you sod
and not access WAP in my places
You're running up a load
You're running up the bill
Be run up to it's ceiling
Hey, if you only would, oh....

You
It's you and them,
It's you, and me I'm gettin' snappy

"Shut'p ravin'!! Shut'p snarling!!!
No more steal this talk time from me now.
Shut'p in hell!! Shut'p, shut'p snarling!!!
No exchange at just my expense! No!!...."

And if you only would
Use your mobile you sod
and not access WAP in my places
You're running up a load
You're running up the bill
Be run up to it's ceiling
Hey, if you only would, oh....

And if you only would
Use your mobile you sod
and not access WAP in my places
You're running up a load
You're running up the bill
It's a problem

And if you only would
Be running up YOUR bill
It's YOUR problem.....

Yay, Kate Bush! And yay! My daughter's grown and gone and my phone bill is reasonable again! Some fives and sympathy for you!

Well, I thoght I was the only person on this sight who knew who Kate Bush is. I saw the video to this on VH-1 back in the eighties and it was good!

Thanks RR & 2LD4U. My daughter came to this song recently via band Within Temptation and we were listening to and comparing the various versions of this song I have (currently 6 different ones) and it was her who thought up the Running Up the Bill line - she then lost interest and I did the rest and finished it..... for a teenager she's pretty good with the 'phone here luckily! ;)

Kate Bush songs are quite hard to do new lyrics to, but this goes with the tune just right!
