    Julie:
    ‘Cause Boingo you make Wi-Fi work!
    And it costs less than it’s worth…
    Makes devices go oh, oh, oh
    As they connect to Wi-Fi

    Katy:
    ‘Cause baby you’re a firework!
    Come on, show’em what you’re worth…
    Make’em go oh, oh, oh
    As you shoot across the sky

    Pauline:
    California Boys
    they’re really wonderful
    board shorts with muscles on top
    Nice tanned skin, so fuego
    They’ll melt your boingo!

    Katy Perry:
    California girls, we’re undeniable
    daisy dukes, bikinis on top
    Sun-kissed skin, so hot
    We’ll melt your popsicle

    Kelsey:
    I connected to Boingo and I liked it,
    providing wi-fi for so many devices.
    I connected to Boingo just to try it,
    I know my iPad, iPhone and laptop don’t mind it.
    It felt so fast,
    it felt so right.
    Boingo, I’m in love tonight.
    I connected to Boingo and I liked it (I liked it).

    Katy:
    I kissed a girl and I liked it,
    the taste of her cherry chapstick.
    I kissed a girl just to try it,
    I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it.
    It felt so wrong,
    it felt so right.
    Don’t mean I’m in love tonight.
    I kissed a girl and I liked it (I liked it).

    E.T by Katy Perry

    Me:

    Boingo B-B-Boingo
    My wifi’s not working
    My deadlines are lurking

    Boingo rescue me now
    Provide me with some wifi
    Help me make the time fly

    Boingo, you’re the one
    Your service is next to none
    Its so dependable
    Extra commendable

    Katy:

    Kiss me, ki-ki-kiss me
    Infect me with your love and
    Fill me with your poison

    Take me, ta-ta-take me
    Wanna be a victim
    Ready for abduction

    Boy you’re an alien
    Your touch so foreign
    It’s supernatural
    Extraterrestrial

  5. Oscar says:

    Trying to make my girlfriends dream come true! Here’s my…

    Boingo Dream by Oscar:

    You make me feel like I’m living a Boingo dream
    The way I turn it on, In a dream
    I’ll go online and I’ll never look up
    I’ll never look up

    My nets fast, when I’m browsing
    Just one click
    and baby I got speed
    Boingo rules, so take a chance
    you won’t ever switch back, won’t ever switch back

    Teenage Dream by Katy Perry:

    You make me feel like I’m living a teenage dream
    The way you turn me on, I can’t sleep
    Let’s run away and don’t ever look back
    Don’t ever look back

    My heart stops when you look at me
    Just one touch
    Now, baby, I believe
    This is real, so take a chance
    And don’t ever look back, don’t ever look back

    Katy Perry Not Like the Movies

    Rebecca’s Lyrics:

    I had no connection
    the Wi-fi had no connection, no,
    am I a stupid traveler for ever thinking I could browse?

    If it’s not like Boingo
    that’s how it should be,
    when it’s the hotspot, I’ll be occupied,
    and i can start Facebooking
    and that’s just the beginning

    Katy’s Lyrics:

    I didn’t feel the fairy tale feeling no
    Am I
    A stupid girl for even dreaming that I could

    If it’s not like the movies
    That’s how it should be yeah
    When he’s the one I’ll come undone
    And my world will stop spinning
    And thats just the beginning yeah

    • Baochi says:

      Rebecca! Sorry I missed this entry! Thanks for letting us know via Twitter. Looooove the lyrics…and no, you’re no stupid traveler — esp. if you know how to Boingo!

  7. Scott Butler says:

    This was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Oh well, gave it a shot (kinda).

    Scotty:
    I…connect to the web
    Only with; Boingo-o
    Yes I do…ev’ry day
    Like a pro, but who knows?

    And my iPod
    Also works, thankfully
    The macbookpro
    Works very flawlessly.

    Katy:
    You change your mind
    Like a girl changes clothes
    Yeah you PMS
    Like a bitch, I would know

    And you overthink
    Always speak cryptically
    I should know
    That you’re no good for me

    • Baochi says:

      Don’t underestimate yourself, Scotty! It would be a dream come true to actually see/hear you perform your lyrics. We bet it’d be a good show!

    • Baochi says:

      Hey Scotty! I’m pleased to tell you that you won third place! We will be contacting you about your $50 gift certificate to the online Katy Perry store. Congrats! Woohoo!

    (written by an 8 year old to honor her retiring 3rd grade teacher after 38 years)
    “School Dream”

    We’re very sad that you’re retiring
    We will miss you, very badly
    In September, you’ll be my teacher
    We’ll go out the door, tonight, to find you
    And get you back in the, teaching business
    And we won’t stop…..

    You make me feel like I’m livin’ a School Dream, the way you educate,
    I can’t sleep, don’t run away…
    Always look back and always BOINGO!

    Katy’s Lyrics:

    Before you met me, I was a wreck
    But things were kinda heavy, you brought me to life
    Now every February you’ll be my valentine, valentine

    Let’s go all the way tonight
    No regrets, just love
    We can dance until we die
    You and I, we’ll be young forever

    You make me feel like I’m living a teenage dream
    The way you turn me on, I can’t sleep
    Let’s runaway and don’t ever look back
    Don’t ever look back

    Last Friday night (TGIF)……

    Pictures of last night
    Ended up online
    I’m screwed
    Oh well
    It’s a black top blur
    But I’m pretty sure it ruled

    Boingo is so fast
    Better than Comcast
    The best
    You know
    Its so freaking fast
    Let’s me surf all night it rules.

  10. Mike says:

    Boingo hot spots so unforgettable
    Fast connects we got in on lock
    Speed so fast
    We’ll melt your popsicle

    Oh Oh Oh OH oH Oh Oh OH oh OH OH
