  • Once, not very long ago
    I was respected, I was popular
    But now I hang my head in shame
    My life is filled with such regrets
    A bad 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 ringin' 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 crossin' the line
    'Cause I hate to waste a buck ninety-nine

    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
    Aah aah
    Ooh ooh oh oh oh

    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
