about

This is a parody of the song "Payphone" by Maroon Five.

lyrics

I'm on an iPhone trying to call home
AT&T wouldn't let me through
The coverage sucked so I'm out of luck and
Now there is nothing we can do.
Yeah, I should have gone with Verizon.
Don't know what made me wait
Guess I wondered how their data plans operate.
I know it's extra for roaming and internationally
I'd do better with a GSM from Mobile T
I pay every bill
My phone never will let Siri explain -
Directions for my brain
To find a new plan
I can understand
They all sound the same!
I'm on an iPhone trying to call home
AT&T wouldn't let me through
The coverage sucked so I'm out of luck and
Now there is nothing we can do.
If happy ever after was a thing
I would get the message when you ring.
Not an hour later in my car
Why won't it go through - we've got 4 bars!
It might be different with Android
I hear they're cheaper to roam.
I would even consider buying a Nokia phone
I like the colorful tiles and interactivity
Though I'd also thought of getting a RIM Blackberry.
My service is gone; what happened to Palm?
They seemed so strong for just a little while.
My signal is blocked; my cellphone is locked
I think I'm focked!
I'm on an iPhone trying to call home
AT&T wouldn't let me through
The coverage sucked so I'm out of luck and
Now there is nothing we can do.
If happy ever after was a thing
I would get the message when you ring.
Not an hour later in my car
Why won't it go through - we've got 4 bars!
But I'm on an iPhone
