Somewhere a telephone is ringing right now
Someone's old sweetheart is on the line
She's calling to patch up an old love affair
Oh, I wish it was mine.

Somebody's writing a letter right now
And saying, Lawd, oh I was blind
Somebody's darling longs to come home
Oh, I wish it was mine.

But you never write me and you never phone
There's somebody else on your mind
And somebody's heart is glad you don't love me
Oh, I wish it was mine.

--- Instrumental ---

But you never write me and you never phone
There's somebody else on your mind
And somebody's heart is glad you don't love me
Oh, I wish it was mine.

(Oh, I wish it was mine...)
