Had our number changed today although I hated to
But each time the phone would ring they'd want to speak to you
And it hurts to tell them you're not here with me
Maybe now oh telephone will let me be
It's not in the book now so you'd better write it down
Just in case your love for me should ever come around
You might want to call and break the news to me just dial Lonesome 7-7203
[ steel ]
I keep the telephone beside me all the time
Hoping you might want to call and say you've changed your mind
If you do then darling you know where I'll be I'm at Lonesome 7-7203
You're the only one I'm givin' out new number to
So now if the telephone should ring I'll know it's you
If you ever long for love that used to be just call Lonesome 7-7203
