This is a day in my life
Im a payphone
Everything whizzes on me And everyone wishes to see A red payphone
But im not
The only calls i get are P.P.I
The only one to talk to me is that homeless guy
And at 8.45am you walk by
At 8.45am you walk by but i don’t have the balls to ring
“If there’s crack in the basement, crack heads stand adjacent”
If i could, i would uproot these concrete socks and we’d go dancing We could sit on a star and laugh until the end of time
But i hate these people who dress like 118 So..
Hold your receiver in the air
Spit out the wrong change and shout Im a payphone!
Someone has damaged my insides
You jammed in a screw driver
Now my L.C.D is fried
When i get older a guy will wipe the food off my hand set Some regrets..
Absolutely some regrets
Confidence concocted
By fibre optics
Under all this advertising, I am hiding May the magnets inside my head
By Alexander Bell, they make me listen to you instead I should have listened to you instead
Go and find that other phone box It’s got a Banksy on it
Go and find that other phone box It’s got the internet init.
Go and find that other phone box Someones made a small library out of it It’s not got a small human poo in it.
