Hello Mudcat people.
The jug band nutters amongst you may enjoy this set of words which my old band Hokum used to do. The tune is On the Road Again. We updated it to On the Phone Again. Hope someone likes it enough to perform it.
She got a mobile 'phone back in '96,
Soon she was needin' her hourly fix.
She got a new model early '97,
Now she spends all her days in a mobile heaven.
Ch. She's on the 'phone again (Don't believe it),
Would you believe she's on the 'phone again.
She's on the 'phone again (No I don't believe it),
The microwave mama's on the 'phone again.
If she's not on the 'phone, she's probably ill,
It's never been known how she pays the bill.
She don't understand, her account's in free fall,
Can she afford to go to work at all?
The regular line will never suffice,
She always can find her pink little device.
If you wanna know which corner she's in
You're certain to find her by the usual win-
Ch. -dow on the 'phone again...
