I had the operator call me back, she said my phone is working fine
I hear in Louisville it's almost dawn, but it's 2 a.m. Pacific time
I thought sure she would've called by now to tell me all about that wild
And crazy L.A. scene
Well I know my number's in her book, why don't that telephone ring

Don't she know I'm anxiously waiting
Longing for her long distance call
I wish I knew what her silence is saying
If my love means anything why don't that telephone ring

She's always had this distant dream I said go make it come true
And you know whatever's in the cards I'll be right here for you
But that's been too long ago and now I just don't know if I'm still a
Part of her dream
If I ever cross her mind at all why don't that telephone ring

Don't she know I'm anxiously waiting
Longing for her long distance call
I wish I knew what her silence is saying
If my love means anything why don't that telephone ring
