I hate my life and I wanna die
I ain't got no iPhone
My heart is breakin', thinkin' suicide
I ain't got no iPhone

I hate my life and I wanna die
I ain't got no iPhone
My heart is breakin', thinkin' suicide
I ain't got no iPhone

Like a boat capsizin'
No hope on the horizon
Got a two-year contract,
And I'm stuck on Verizon!

I got no iPhone I hate my life and I wanna die
(I got no iPhone)
It's 2009 people. And everyone should have an iPhone.
(I got no iPhone)
(My heart is breakin', thinkin' suicide)
(I got no iPhone)
Aww
I got no iPhone.
