When you're driving on the highway,
In your car and all alone,
Oh what a comfort it must be
To have your little phone.

You can hold it with your right hand
Against your eager ear
And listen to your heart's content
While you use your left to steer.

How nice it is to just converse,
To have your little chat,
While weaving through the traffic
Like Hell's proverbial  bat.

Or maybe this is business?
A deal that just can't wait?
An urgent message to your spouse
That you'll be a little late?

How terribly important
Your busy little life must be.
But when you're out in traffic
And you're anywhere near me

Take your telephone and put it
In a place dark and confined
And keep both hands on the wheel, please.
That is, if you don't mind!

I agree as well, I'm one of the fortunate poeple of the world that doesn't own a mobile phone and personally i would hate to be on call to everyone every second of the day

Wow! Yeah, you tell them, Dom! Nobody's 'business' is that important that they risk the lives and/or well being of others. Just another evidence of our increasingly selfish society.
