The Lyrics

One of the most stress-inducing things I can think of...waiting for the phone to ring!
I want a call (hey-ee-yeah-eah), I want a call
I want a call and I want it now

An interviewer's gettin' back to me
Hopin' that it's sooner than it might seem
All that they had told me was "today", my brow
Is awash with saline despite my wipes now
I don't think my chances are high, must say
But I'd still like to get this thing out of the way

I want a call, I want a call
I want a call and I want it now
I want a call, I want a call
I want a call and I want it now

My ears keep mistakin' all sorts of sounds
For my ringtone, I should change that but that would just change around
What instigates, uh, this damn heart of mine
To jump in my throat's space and then mess with my mind
Although I hate traffic, wish they let me choose
Face-to-face meetin's, less nerves I would lose (ayy)

I want a call (make the call, I want a call), I want a call (hey)
I want a call and I want it now
I want a call (yes, I want a call), I want a call (hey)
I want a call and I want it now

Wish they had set an exact time instead of just post-nine, pre-five (coulda been so handy)
On the very edge of my seat 'til the time my phone's alive
But it still isn't on, no, it still isn't on
Friggin' still isn't on, come on, still isn't on, ooh-ooh, ow, yeah-ee-yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-ah

Drivin' me to madness, brain is almost goo
Hope I don't hang up by mistake, so screwed (by mistake, by mistake, so screwed)

I want a call, I want a call
I want a call and I want it now
I want a call (hey-ee-yeah-ee-yeah-eah), I want a call (hea-hea-hea-hea-hea-hea)
I want a call and I want it now (oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

And I want it now (I want it, I want it)
Ooh, hah!

I'm serious, knowing that the phone's gonna ring sometime absolutely puts me on edge. It's why I changed my default ringtone from one of the Pokémon wild battle music themes to "Pick Up the Phone" by Lupe Fiasco. Too panicky.
