You Can Have A Cell Phone That's Ok But Not Me

Lyrics

Well you can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me
Cause I don't
Cause I won't
Look, when I'm on the beach
I'm on the beach
No you can't call me there
And when I'm on a walk
I'm on a walk
No you can't call me there
And when it's breakfast time
It's breakfast time
What more can I say?

I say you can have a cell phone that's ok
Just not me
Well someday there might be no more pay phones
What'll I do then? well, I'll tell ya
I just wait till I get someplace
Then I'll call you up
Or I'll write you a letter
Or I'll come over to your house
Well Jonathan, suppose you're late for a show?
What about that?
Well, aren't you gonna call the club?
No I'll just
Now that there is no more payphones what are you going to do?
I ain't gonna use one of those things
I'll just show up
So they'll open the doors
There won't be no soundcheck
I didn't like soundcheck anyway
I'll get there about nine o'clock
And that's right when we're supposed to start
So we'll just walk on to a plane [???]
Cause you can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me

Yeah

Lyrics

Well you can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me
Cause I don't
And I won't
Look, when I'm on the beach
I'm on the beach
No you can't call me there
If I'm on a walk
I'm on a walk
No you can't call me there
And when it's breakfast time
Then it's breakfast time
What more need I say?
I say you can have a cell phone if that's your choice
Just not me

[All right Jonathan, that's big talk
What are you going to do when there's no more pay telephones?
In about three or four more years there'll be no payphone
What are you going to do then?
I don't know
But I ain't getting one of those things
I'll get to a real friend somewhere and I'll call you up, that's what]

You have a cell phone and that's ok
Just not I
You can have a cell phone with all accessories
If you want to die
If I'm on the beach
I'm on the beach
No you can't call me there
And if I'm on a walk
I'm on a walk
No you can't call me there
And when it's breakfast time
Then it's breakfast time
What more need I say?
You can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me

You can have a cell phone
[Yeah you have and you have, me? no]

[That was titled "You can have a cell phone that's ok, but not me"
Some of these titles, just what else can you call it? some of these things]

Lyrics

[We'll leave you this evening with a song which has a message]

Well you can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me
Cause I don't
And I won't
Look, if I'm on the beach
I'm on the beach
No I'm not available there
If when I'm on a walk
I'm on a walk
No you can't call me there
And if it's breakfast time
It's breakfast time
What more need I say?
I say you can have a cell phone that's ok
Just not me

[Well that's big talk Jonathan
But what are you going to do if there's no more public telephones?
I'll wait till I get to a real place and call you up
I'll send you a postcard
I'll come over to your house or something
???
Tour with Tommy
Well you don't want to be late for the show
That won't happen
It's like back in the old days
You'd be late for stuff
When you'd show up you'd show up
"We're on the bridge now
We'll be taking a left turn
We'll be there in 37 seconds"
No, no, no, no, no
???]

You can have a cell phone, that's just fine
Just not I
You can have a cell phone, with all the accessories and stuff
If you want to die
If I'm on the beach, I'm on the beach
No you can't call me there
If I'm on a walk, I'm on a walk
No you can't call me there
And if it's breakfast time
It's breakfast time
What more need I say?
I say you can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me
You can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me
You can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me

[Good night]

If I'm on the beach, I'm on the beach
No you can't call me there
[That's right, keep the beat]
If I'm on a walk, I'm on a walk
No you can't call me there
And if I'm on the beach, I'm on the beach
No you can't call me there

And if it's breakfast time
It's breakfast time
Don't even think about calling me then
You can have a cell phone that's ok
Just not me
[Everybody!]
You can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me [no]
You can have a cell phone that's ok
But not me
[???]

Lyrics

Well you can have a cell phone that's ok
Just not me
Cause I don't
And I won't

Look, if I'm on the beach
Then I'm on the beach
No you can't call me there

And if it's breakfast time
It's breakfast time
No you can't call me there

And if I'm on the sidewalk
Well then I'm on the sidewalk
What more need I say

I say you enjoy your cell phone
That's fine
Just not me

Jonathan, what are you going to do when there's no more pay phones?
I don't know, I'll figure it out

You can have a cell phone, that's ok
With all the accessories
You can have a cell phone with all those things
That's right, don't send me a doctor bill

If I'm on the beach
I'm on the beach
No you can't call me there

If I'm on a walk
I'm on a walk
No you can't call me there

And if it's breakfast time
Then it's breakfast time

You can't have a cell phone
That's all right
Just count me out

Cause I don't
