The Lyrics

As we all know, there is a signifigant amount of legal hassling about the Do Not Call List, so the ideas expressed herein may or may not be current! (By the way - Try calling the telemarketers themselves at: (317) 816-9336
(oo) What you don't want
(oo) Baby , you get anyway
(oo) What you need
(oo) Is Caller ID
(oo) All I'm askin'
(oo) Is for a little respect when you call durin' dinner (just a little bit)
Hey telemarketers (just a little bit) when you call me
(just a little bit) disappear (just a little bit)

I ain't gonna prank call you all night long
Ain't gonna prank call you(oo) 'cause I don't wanna (oo)
All I'm askin' (oo)
Is for a little respect when you call(just a little bit)
Telemarketers(just a little bit) when you call(just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

I've nearly given you all of my money
And all I'm askin' in return , telemarketers
Is that you stop calling me 24/7
When you call me(just a, just a, just a, just a)
Hang up (just a, just a, just a, just a)
When you call me(just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

Oh, The FCC (oo)
Sign up for the Do-Not-Call List (oo)
And guess what? (oo)
Now its "Unconstitutional!" (oo)
How fun! (oo) (NOT) for me
To find that out when I turn on the news (re, re, re ,re)
Yeah telemarketers (re, re, re ,re)
Yall' can still call me (respect , just a little bit)
When you call during dinner now (just a little bit)

Telemarketers and the FTC
Sellin' their garbage on QVC
Telemarketers and the FTC
Selling their garbage on QVC

Oh (phone it to me, phone it to me,
phone it to me, phone it to me)
A little respect (phone it to me, phone it to me,
phone it to me, phone it to me)
Whoa , telemarketers (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)
