  • Song Lyrics:
    Once, not very long ago, I was respected, I was popular (popular, ooh)
    But now I hang my head in shame (ahh, ooh)
    My life is filled with such regret
    A bad mistake I can't forget
    And now I'll never be the same

    Ringtone
    Why did I buy this stupid ringtone?
    I just can't imagine now what I was thinking at all (What was I thinking?)
    My friends all stare at me whenever I get a call
    Well, everybody (everybody)
    Everybody (everybody)
    Everybody in the world really hates my ringtone

    When my phone goes off at work
    I look like the biggest jerk
    Total strangers wanna slap me around
    When it's ringin' on the terrace
    My neighbors get embarrassed
    They're beggin' me to move outta town
    Well, it made my wife so sick
    She smashed my iPhone with a brick
    But I had it fixed, and now it's just fine
    It's a pain, I sure don't need it
    And I probably should delete it
    But for me that would be crossin' the line
    'Cause I hate to waste a buck ninety nine
    Hey, I paid good money for this...

    Ringtone
    Why did I buy this stupid ringtone?
    I just can't imagine now what I was thinking at all (Really, what was I thinking?)
    My friends all stare at me whenever I get a call
    Well, everybody (everybody)
    Everybody (everybody)
    Everybody in the world really hates my ringtone

    Ringtone
    Ringtone
    Ahh, ooh

    Chinese factory workers (they hate my ringtone)
    Muslim women in burqas (really hate my ringtone)
    Starvin' kids in Angola (they hate my ringtone)
    Even folks with Ebola (just hate my ringtone)
    All the nuns and nannies (all the welfare mothers)
    All the Pakistanis (all the Wayans brothers)
    Everyone on the land, everyone on the sea
    Every single person everywhere unanimously
    Everybody (everybody)
    Everybody (everybody)
    Everybody in the whole wide world really hates my
    Ringtone... ringtone... ringtone... ringtone... ringtone... ringtone...

    And it isn't available in Canada.... Which accounts for the huge majority of the music and ringtones I want to legitimately access on the internet. (And they wonder why piracy is such a huge problem up here.)

    Well . . . that's just. . .wow. . .LOL. . . I have to admit, juvenile as it may be--I'd laugh my butt off if I was walking through a store and someone's cell phone started farting. . .
