ON THE PHONE AGAIN

aka The Ron Buccarelli Blues

(Apologies to Willie Nelson)

On the phone again,
I can't wait to get on the phone again,
all my life is taking phone calls from my friends,
I can't wait to get on the phone again.

On the phone again,
doing business where I've never been,
fiber optics hold me hostage to the ground,
I can't wait to get on the phone again.

On the phone again,
like a bolt of lightning I go down the airwaves,
One more message to send,
just waiting for a dial tone so I can fly away.

Just want to fly away...

On the phone again,
I can't wait to get on the phone again,
tell ATT where they can shove this thing my friend,
I can't wait to get on the phone again...

No, I can't wait to get on the phone again...

Hello...is anyone listening...is anybody there!?
Whaddya mean, "push pound!?":rolleyes:

{Hi Ron! Your chain has just been yanked! You're welcome!}
