(Kim Carnes/Bill Cuomo)

I have got this friend
She's looking all over town
And she just can't imagine why
She can't find anyone
And when she finds a good boy
She pulls the rope too tight
And then she sends them all out
Screaming in the night

854-7256
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't let 'em know
That you're home alone
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't let 'em know
That you're all alone

I have got this friend
She travels 'round the sun
She's just looking for the magic
She's just trying to sind someone
And when she finds a good boy
She pulls the rope too tight
And then she sends them all out
Screaming in the night

854-7256
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't let 'em know
That you're home alone
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't let 'em know
That you're all alone

I have got this friend
She's looking all over town
And she just can't imagine why
She can't find anyone

854-7256
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't let 'em know
That you're home alone
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't pick up the phone
Pick up the phone
Don't let 'em know
That you're all alone
Don't pick it up just because you're all alone
