You can't call her
Waited all night for a phone call
When it came it said 'Battery is low'
'Would you please connect to a charger'
'Disconnection in five if you don't'
Why do they call these things smartphones?
Got no feelin', no heart and no soul
All it wants is a buzz for its battery
When all I want is my girl to come home
It knows that I'm lost in a quandary
My heart goin' this way and that
And all it can do is to tell me
'You can't call her your battery is flat'
