Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

Girl, there's something I gotta say  
I see you driving fast, thinking you're all that  
But I see what you're doing down there  
And I got news for you 
So listen up  
Here's how it goes  
I've been sittin' in my car for at least an hour  
I'm stuck in traffic so I whip it out  
I need to have a little peek every now and again 
I can't keep it in my pants for more than ten minutes 
I can't miss any of the action 
This bundle of joy give me satisfaction 
Oh, what you think I'm talkin' about 
It's a smartphone, dude I can't live without it 
They say that men can't multitask and I know that much is true 
You know it, girl 
Oh sexy ladies who text behind the wheel, you know you're crazy too 
Oh girl, you crazy 
Get your hands off it I'm at a red light 
Get your hands off it I gotta get this right 
Get your hands off it 
But I'm gonna be late 
Get your hands off it 
It's your very first date 
Get your hands up 
But I'm on a deadline 
Get your hands off it 
But I'm checking my timeline 
Get your hands off it 
But I never look down 
Get your hands off it 
But there's no one around 
I've been doing this for years, I'm a natural 
I never had a crash, yeah it's factual 
Maybe you can text and drive 
But I sure as hell can't and I'm still alive 
I'm on a twelve hour shift gotta stay alert 
I'm checking little text well it never hurt 
A brother gotta get from A to B 
I keep it outta sight so the cops can't see 
I need you baby to understand exactly what I'm tryin' to say 
I know it's hard to resist it, girl 
But it's time to put it away 
Get your hands off it 
Get your hands off it 
Get your hands off it 
Get your hands off it 
Get your hands off it 
Get your hands off it 
Get your hands off it 
Get your hands off it 
But I'm at a red light 
Get your hands off it 
I gotta get this text right 
Get your hands off it 
But I'm gonna be late 
Get your hands off it 
It's our very first date 
Get your hands off it 
But I'm on a deadline 
Get your hands off it 
But I'm checking my timeline 
Get your hands off it 
But I never look down 
Get your hands off it 
But there's no one around
