Shape of You – Nokia 3310 Edition

by: - Last updated on: March 1st, 2017

Take a features writer who is an Ed Sheeran fan. Add an editorial mentor with a penchant for rhyming. Add all the hype around the newly (re)launched Nokia 3310. And what do you get? Well, a version of Ed Sheeran’s smash hit “Shape of You” dedicated to Nokia’s golden (new) oldie! To be sung to the tune of Shape of You.

Editor’s note: In case you live in a cave and haven’t listened to it, check out the original before proceeding.

MWC is the best place to go when it is phones you cover
The demo zone is where we go
Me and my friends doing hands on, taking shots
Writing fast as we go from show to show
Nokia comes over, hands a three three one oh to just me
Asks me to give it a glance now
I take it in my hands, stop
Because this phone so rocks
Feels like an old romance
And now I’m singing like

Guys, you don’t need to shove
This phone was handmade for somebody like me
Calls and texts are all I need
No iPhones or Android for me

Oh, boy, let’s just talk so much
Tap that keyboard and play some Snake on me
I may be old, but fun indeed
Come, come on now, follow my lead

I’m in love with the shape of you
Though there ain’t no apps on you
And I use a smartphone too
I’m in love with your body
With you there is no battery gloom
And my chargers stay brand new
I’m in love with your body
Every day discovering new shades of the same old you
I’m in love with the shape of you

Years ago, we dumped you in the bin
Now it is time for another date
Other phones are so hefty
But you and I are so neat
We are meeting again, it’s gotta be fate
I can talk for hours and hours about the sweet and the sour
And your battery is always doing okay
Cost less than a ride in a taxi,
Put the specs in the backseat
The cam sucks but the radio plays
And I’m singing like

Guys, you don’t need to shove
This phone was handmade for somebody like me
Calls and texts are all I need
No iPhones or Android for me

Oh, boy, let’s just talk so much
Tap that keyboard and play some Snake on me
I may be old, but fun indeed
Come, come on now, follow my lead

I’m in love with the shape of you
Though there ain’t no apps on you
And I use a smartphone too
I’m in love with your body
With you there is no battery gloom
And my chargers stay brand new
I’m in love with your body
Every day discovering new shades of the same old you
I’m in love with the shape of you
