(Jagger/Richards)
sittin in my bedroom late last night
got into bed and turned out the light
decided to call my baby on the telephone
all i got was a busy tone
its off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook

talkin so long she upset my mind
why are you talking such a long time
maybe she's sleeping maybe she's ill
phones disconnected unpaid bill
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook

don't wanna see her fraid of what i find
tired of lettin her upset me all the time
back into bed started reading my book
take my phone right off of the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook

it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
it's off the hook
