The Lyrics

I think I'm losing it
A man walks down the street,
He stops and talks right in the middle now
Stops right in the middle
And pulls out all his calling cards
He needs to call all of his buddies
He wants to talk to his mother
I wanna bury his cell phone
In a cell phone graveyard
Phone talker, phone talker
He's on it each night
Stands in front of crowded doors
Calls his friend Sally, friend Sally
Get the heck away from here
You know nobody wants to listen to you anymore

Standing in the mini-mart,
Chatting with his college pals
(He says)
"If I hear it ringing,
Oh, if I hear it ringing
You can call my cell"

A man walks down the street
He says "where are my roaming options"
Got hardly any free minutes
For me to use, what will I do?
I'll call my wife and family,
Also my old Aunt Sue
Gonna get a phone cover
Now that my phone cover is lost, lost
I lost it in the market
While I was talking to my sister Pearl,
All along, along,
People stared at me while I just stood, babbling
They tried to hint I looked stupid"

Standing in the mini-mart,
Chatting with his college pals
"Speak up louder, Betty,
Please speak up louder, Betty!
'Cause I'm on my cell"

A man walks down the street,
Like he's in a different world
Talkin' to all his girls
What a moron, what a motor-mouth
He speaks Spanish and English
And also Japanese
To talk to foreign men
And all his friends in Japan, Japan
Chatting in the marketplace
To his cousin and brother too
He looks around, around
He sees people staring at him and then he
Shuts his mobile off
He says "Goodbye, I'll call again."

Talking in the mini-mart
Chatting with his college pals
"Speak up louder, Eddie,
Oh, I can't hear you, Eddie,
'Cause I'm on my cell,
On my cell"
Can you hear me now... GO SHUT OFF YOUR MOBILE PHONE Thank you

I think it's time to start talking about the Final Solution of the Cell Phone question. Well they/re all gonna get brain tumors anyway, so we can just wait for it to happen.
