DAWN AND HER MOBILE-PHONE

(to the tune of "La Donna È Mobile")

Dawn had her mobile-phone
Ringer turned off t'nite
SUV out of sight,
Kids left at home alone.

Not in the neighborhood
Checked with her relatives
 - Reason she always gives, 
"You men screwed up good." 

Dawn had her mobile-phone
Ringer turned off t'nite
SUV out of sight
Kids left alone
Kids left alone
Ey-ey ey-ey, kids left alone. 

Misery is my lot,
Trusted her analyst,
Her medication list
Just won't mix with pot.

Yet one can't give up hope
Of happiness restored;
She'll come back when she's bored
And smoked all her dope.

Dawn had her mobile-phone
Power turned off once more
She'll come back when she's bored
And smoked all her dope.
Smoked all her dope
Ey-ey, ey-ey Smoked all her dope.
