The Lyrics

This song refers to and satirizes one of my favourite corporate gaffes. A Verizon consumer was being quoted $0.00002 per kilobyte but charged $0.002 for data transfers, leading to a bill a hundred times larger than expected. See the full story at http://verizonmath.blogspot.com/
Verizon, Verizon
Oh my, oh my, oh my
You're unpredictable
You brought us joy when you hooked up our house's Wi-Fi
You gave us cell phones with cov'rage to France and Dubai
You've got a way with serving the populace
But when you made this boo-boo, we couldn't help but suspect
You weren't correct!

Verizon, Verizon
Oh my, oh my, oh my
It's mathematical!
You grokked it so very clearly
When you quoted me two thousandths of
A penny
And then you made me pay like hell
For those data transfers you're trying to sell
Ooh whoa ooh whoa
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

Then you put me on hold at home
Three people had to answer your telephone
Verizon
Get your mathematics right
For me now -- me now -- now
Verizon, I'm confused

Oh, you quote me prices in pennies
But dollars differ
I'm going out of my mind
Ooh

You're unpredictable -- I'm confused, Verizon
Verizon -- I'm confused

(But dollars differ
But dollars differ
But dollars differ
But dollars differ...)
If anyone from Verizon sees this and wants me to take it down, I will. You guys are great. Just make sure you watch where the decimal point goes.
