I wake up in the morning and I’ve got to send an sms (yes)
I wake up in the morning and it’s 10 cents airtime I’ve got left
My hand aches from a heavy evening of texting the night before
my fingers can’t stop shaking as I reach for my front door (handle)

I walk up my sunny street to the shop round the corner (yeah)
I walk up to the granny’s seat, wrinkled cashier, too much sauna
My hand reaches for my wallet, it is airtime I must buy
my fingers reach for my imaginary drum sticks, why?

I’ve got this beat stuck in my head
I don’t know why, but it must be said
Playing on imaginary drums
there’s a song that must be sung

Thirty rand airtime MTN, please
Thirty rand airtime MTN, please
Thirty rand airtime MTN, please
Thirty rand airtime MTN, please

I take up the magic slip, with the number I must send
I take up my cellular phone, small and quaint, 3310
My hand reaches to the buttons, A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H
la dada, da dada, da dada, da dada, da daa, da daa, da daa, daa

I’ve got good news stuck in my head
awesome news that must be spread
Must send it in an sms swiftly
airtime at Checkers, twenty seven rand fifty

Twenty seven rand fifty MTN, please
Twenty seven rand fifty MTN, please
Twenty seven rand fifty MTN, please
Twenty seven rand fifty MTN, please
