The Mobile Phone

Lyrics and Music by Richie Kavanagh

Oh my girlfriend has a mobile phone,
Now we can never have a minute alone.
The other night I asked her for a kiss,
She said “Hang on now till I answer this”.

Oh this mobile phone it is a curse,
An it makes a awful hole in her purse.
Wud her mobile phone she gets such a trill,
But her smile disappears when she gets the bill.


On sunday it rang in the middle of mass,
An all the children thought it was great gas.
Some people though it was the Angelus,
But the priest on the alter was furious.


Last week I was courting her in me car,
An she was letting me go to far.
The next thing her mobile phone did ring,
Just as I was about to put me hand on her …..


If your looking for a girlfriend now ya see,
My advice to you would be.
If the girl that ya fancy has a mobile phone,
Don’t bodder about her just leave her alone.


[Richie] ….. “Hello is that Fenagh, double two, double two”
[Johnnie] … “No, this Fenagh 22 22”
[Richie] ….. “Ah, Im sorry for getting you out a the bed”
[Johnnie] … “Ah sure, I had to come down to answer the phone anyway”
