Get A Headset Grandma

Chorus
Get a headset Grandma
Get a headset Grandma
don’t hold the phone to your head that way
swerving like a drunk
from lane to lane
it’s just a matter of time, someday,
you're gonna kill someone
 
Verse
You are old, and it’s great you’re still alive
you look as if your 95
but might I ask that when you drive,
you keep both hands on the wheel?
 
Chorus
Get a headset grandma
Get a headset grandma
don't hold the phone to your head that way
swerving like a drunk
from lane to lane
take it as a kindness
when I say
You're gonna kill someone
 
Verse
The life you save may be your own
or maybe someone you don’t know
who has a lifetime still to go
did you ever think of that?
 
So....
 
Chorus
Get a headset Grandma
Get a headset Grandma
don’t hold the phone to your head that way
swerving like a drunk
from lane to lane
c’mon let me whisper in your hearing aid
your gonna kill someone
even better yet, take a bus or train
cause you're gonna kill someone
you're gonna kill - (hey)
you're gonna kill
you're gonna kill someone
