The Lyrics

Another one about the challenges of virtual meeting. This one goes out to all those awkward "no you go," moments and meeting extenders with "one more thing."
Ha ha ha ha ha
Yo, I’ll tell you when to talk, cause I know you wanna talk
So tell me when to talk, cause I really want to talk
I’ll tell you when to talk, cause I know you wanna talk
So tell me when to talk, cause I really wanna talk
You wanna, (go) I’m gonna, (go) You wanna, (go) I’m gonna, (go)
I want a really, really, really want a big awkward pause

How could this go smoother, I’m glad you asked
If you wanna get to speak, better jump in fast
Now don't go wasting all of our time
Get your shit together my next call’s in five

I’ll tell you when to talk, cause I know you wanna talk
So tell me when to talk, cause I really wanna talk
You wanna, (go) I’m gonna, (go) You wanna, (go) I’m gonna, (go)
I want a really, really, really want a big awkward pause

If you WannaSpeak, oh brother,
You gotta let this call end
(Gotta let this call end)
It feels like forever, since this call began
If you WannaSpeak, oh brother,
You’ve got thoughts to give
Interrupting’s easy, but that’s not courteous

Oh, that’s what you think about that
Now we know how you feel
Then you just babble off thoughts, hey what’s your deal
(Hey what’s your deal?)
Now don’t go crazy, I won’t roll my eyes
If you could unmute me I'll just say goodbye

Yo, I’ll tell you when to talk, cause I know you wanna talk
So tell me when to talk, cause I really wanna talk
You wanna, (go) I’m gonna, (go) You wanna, (go) I’m gonna, (go)
I want a really, really, really want a big awkward pause

If you WannaSpeak, oh brother,
You gotta let this call end
(Gotta let this call end)
Could this be an email, can’t you raise your hands
If you WannaSpeak, oh brother,
You’ve got thoughts to give
(Your thoughts to give)
Talking over teammates, that’s just not courteous

So here’s the story from Zoom to Teams
When you wanna speak while you’re meetin’ virtually
With the boss of your place who likes to see your face
You had three big coffees, you like them for the
Early meets, that won’t work for me, she's a real lazy
And as you see, my hair’s messy
Slam your keyboard down and we’ll all hear the sound
Slam your keyboard down and we’ll all hear the sound

If you WannaSpeak, oh brother,
You gotta let this call end
(Gotta let this call end)
It feels like forever, since this call began
If you WannaSpeak, oh brother,
You’ve got thoughts to give
(Your thoughts to give)
Interrupting’s easy, but that gets us all pissed

If you WannaSpeak, oh brother
You wanna, you wanna, you wanna, you wanna, you wanna
Slam, slam, slam, slam (it feels like forever)
Slam your keyboard down and we’ll all hear the sound
Slam your keyboard down and we’ll all hear the sound
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Slam your keyboard down and we’ll all hear the sound
Slam your keyboard down and big awkward pause

If you WannaSpeak, oh brother
