CHORUS
Mr Telephone man
There's somethin wrong with my line
When I dial my babys number
I get a click every time
Mr Telephone man
There's somethin wrong with my line
When I dial my babys number
I get a click every time
When I dial 611 carry service
She said hello may I help you please
Told her somethin must be wrong with my phone
Cuz my baby wouldn't hang up on me
CHORUS
He let the phone ring twenty times before he answered
Let me tell you what happened then
A minute later I got the operator
Sayin please hang up and place your call again, baby
CHORUS
Some strange womans on the telephone (my telephone)
Keeps tellin me my baby he aint home (that he's not home)
He aint got no party line
Situations blown my mind
Oh, I just can't take this anymore
~spoken~
Please Operator
See what you can do
I dialed the right number
But I still couldnt get through
Would you just check the wire
Just one more time if you can
Im pretty sure his phone aint bein answered by no woman
CHORUS
Must be a bad connection to my love and affection
Oh baby, I just can't take this no more
This situations blown my mind
Cant get my baby on the line
CHORUS (repeat)
I tried dialing information
Cant get no cooperation
System on the phone tellin me my baby aint home
Aw baby, I just can't take in anymore
Help me out please Mr Telephone man
Help me out please Mr Telephone man
