I'm in the phone booth, it's the one across the hall
If you don't answer, I'll just ring it off the wall
I know he's there but I just had to call

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

I heard your mother now, she's going out the door
But did she go to work or just go to the store
All those things she said, I told you to ignore

Oh, why can't we talk again? Oh, why can't we talk again?
Oh, why can't we talk again?
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

It's good to hear your voice, you know it's been so long
If I don't get your call then everything goes wrong
I want to tell you something, you've known all along

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

I had to interrupt and stop this conversation
Your voice across the line gives me a strange sensation
I'd like to talk when I can show you my affection

Oh, I can't control myself, oh, I can't control myself
Oh, I can't control myself
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

Hang up and run to me, hang up and run to me
Hang up and run to me, hang up and run to me
Run to me
