This is what happens when you text Adele lyrics to your ex
Adele’s newest song, “Hello,” is a sad and soulful ballad about losing the ones you love.
If you aren’t familiar with Adele, though (yes, these people exist), her lyrics could also read as a pretty standard drunk text. Mary Caldarella decided to test it out on her ex-boyfriend, Matt, by texting him the words of the heartbreaking song.

Man responds to Facebook scammer using just Adele lyrics … and it doesn’t go down well
IT’S tempting to ignore messages from people you don’t know, especially when it’s pretty obvious they’re after something.
Frank Flemming Jensen is from Denmark and decided to have a bit of fun when he received an unsolicited message from a woman on Facebook.
She was hoping he would send her money, but instead Frank decided to chat to her using only Adele lyrics.
He kicked off with the words from her smash hit comeback track Hello, which was all over the radio last year.
“Hello beautiful,” the woman messaged him.
“Hello,” he replied, prompting her response: “I think you are sexy man.”
Frank sent back: “Hello, it’s me.”
“Yes, I know,” the confused woman said.
She got a bit of a hint things were taking a turn for the strange with Frank’s next reply: “I was wondering if after all these years you would like to meet.”
Given they had never spoken before, this must have been kind of strange — but the woman didn’t let it show.
“Yes of course honey I really want to meet you,” she said.
The bizarre exchange continued, with the woman apparently completely unaware she was being pranked despite none of the messages she was receiving making much sense.
Eventually she got to the heart of the matter, after Frank sent a lyric saying he needed to be healed.
“OK honey I can heal you if you want,” she said. “But need money to come to you to heal you.”
Frank sent back more Adele lyrics … causing the woman to reiterate that she really needed some cash to buy a plane ticket to see him.
Eventually she seemed to realise something was up, but once again got the wrong end of the stick.
After Frank said he needed to apologise for everything he’d done, she wrote: “Maybe you mistake me for other woman?
“It’s no problem, you just need to help me with the air ticket then I come to you. OK?”
Things continued in this way, until Frank eventually pushed his luck too far.
“I must have called a thousand times (thousand times),” was the message which broke the camel’s back.
The woman finally sensed something fishy was going on, and let her frustration show.
“Hello, is this a joke? Am I a joke to you? You making fun?” she wrote.
“F*** you! A*shole! F*** you son of a b****.
“If I ever meet you I will kill you and your family you f****** f***.”
The exchange has gone down a storm online, with Reddit users laughing about how fun it was and sharing their amazement that it took her so long to figure out something was up.
