Subject: Song Challenge: Folk ringtone lyrics
From: Artful Codger
Date: 21 Jan 12 - 05:49 PM

I had a dream this morning where I was about to sing "The Cocks Are Crowing" when someone's cell phone went off with one of these annoying, funked-up ringtones. So (while waking) I set about rewriting "The Cocks Are Crowing" as a ringtone lyric, and this is what emerged:
The phone is ringing, someone is appealing
for you attendance at his whim.
Arise, you laggard, out of your stupor;
arise, you laggard, and answer him.
(My apologies: if I worked at it, I'm sure I could come up with a less sarcastic version without male-centric pronouns. But truth in reporting...)


The Challenge: Write a short parody of a folk song for use as a ringtone.

Just popped this off. I'm not satisfied with it yet either.

[To the "Lone Ranger" theme from William Tell Overture]

Wa-ake up! Lis-ten up! I'm ring-ing now.
There's a call for you; can't 'ma-gine how.
An-swer me be-fore I have a cow.
Yo-our phone i-is ri-ing-ing!
BB,
NightWing

An-swer, why don't you answer
That's not ants in your pants - A
phone is ringing in Vibro mode.

Come-on, answer your mo-bile
But don't answer your phone while
You are driving on the road.

Yes, I still have the (somewhat annoying) 'Crazy Frog' as my ringtone.

Cheers
Nigel

Hello central, Flash ain't taking calls,
Mobile phones just send him climbing walls

FC (Oh Mr Jellylord!)
