Once, not very long ago I was respected,
I was popular (popular).
But now I hang my head in shame.
My life is filled with such regret,
Of that 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 want to slap me around.
When it's ringing on the terrace,
My neighbors get embarrassed.
They're beggin' me to move out of 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 crossing the line.
'Cause I hate to waste a buck 99.
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!
Ahhh!

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!
