TEXTING
by Bill Warrington and Sam Cooper 2011

You're sittin' in a bar with your thumbs on your screen,
She walks right by you, she's the woman of your dreams.
You keep lookin' down and your face is all aglow,
She leaves the bar without you, so you're goin' home alone.

Chorus
While you're texting,
Take a break long enough to hold your I-phones and Blackberries in the air.
If you're messaging,
We ain't annoyed with your Droid, cause we're used to the fact that you just don't care,
Don't take it personal, we're up here pouring out our lives,
And we hope your battery dies,
While you're texting,
While you're texting

In an honors class, you like to sit on your ass,
Ignoring the teacher, just being plain rude,
She calls out sick 'cause she's sick of your texting,
But you just do the same thing to the substitute.

Chorus
While you're texting,
Take a break long enough to hold your I-phones and Blackberries in the air.
If you're messaging,
We ain't annoyed with your Droid, cause we're used to the fact that you just don't care,
Facebook chatter or Instagram and Twitter,
Completely unable to talk to another,
While you're texting,
And you're sexting.

Bridge
At the theater, at the bar, at the movies, in the car,
In the coffee shop, even while you're sitting on the pot,
You're texting,
While you're texting.
While you're texting.

Instrumental Solos

...and we hope your b,b,b,b,b, battery d,d,d,d,d, dies,
While you're texting,
While you're texting

Repeat first chorus
While you're texting.
While you're texting.
While you're texting.
While you're texting.
