about

In 2011, Legend did a few calls where he got employees of convenience stores to shut off all the power in the store. Lately breaker flipping has been happening a lot on various prank call shows, so RBCP decided to write this song about it.

This is a parody song of Abracadabra by The Steve Miller Band. The lyrics were written by RBCP. The clips of Pam from Circle K are taken from this phone call by Legend. The "1! 2! 3!" guy in the song is from another call by Legend. The instrumental for this song was created by Ben Stahl.

lyrics

Hello ma'am, It's Roy Gerbil,
I'm calling you from the corporate cell,
There's a problem you need to know,
Your system's down and the network's slow.

Every time you make a sale,
The board lights up and the hard drive fails,
But don't worry, we can make it stop,
Head to the back and find the breaker box.

Okay, now just you listen,
You need to flip all the switches,
We're resetting the system,
Flip all the switches.

We'll fix this now, we need your help,
This is a part of working in retail,
Don't you worry, we're almost through,
Open the door labeled panel 2.

Okay now just you listen,
You need to flip all the switches,
We're resetting the system,
Flip all the switches.

I know you hear alarms going off,
And you think you need to call your boss,
Customers keep coming in,
Keep your focus and please ignore them.

This is the worst problem I've ever seen,
Now it's affecting all of the machines,
We've got one last chance to gain control,
Find the door labeled 900 volts.

Okay now just you listen,
You need to flip all the switches,
We're resetting the system,
Flip all the switches.

It's okay, ma'am the lights went out,
The circuit's waiting for another route,
Keep flipping all the breakers down the row,
Oh shit, you're on a cordless phone.
