Kenny Rogers – Call Me Up ( The Phone Is In The Cradle ) lyrics

Call me up.

My friends they don't talk much 'bout the legend
My friends they don't talk much anyway
When they do, I know I better listen,
'cos my good friends just naturally know
The right things to say, they say:

Call me up the phone is in the cradle,
Get yourself a liver to my door,
But if you saw any plan and if you got the time,
We could talk the night away.

I don't got so lonely and I've gotta
He said: it's tough to be the only man alive,
He said: I'd give a river for just somebody to talk to
We're thinking in lighting out for biting,
We came strolling by, she said:

Call me up the phone...

Now Rosy was a queen of the all night cowboy,
She said: Texas boy using kind of shy
Don't you expect the nimble's invitation,
Just knock on the wall
Track down the hall and drop on by, she said:

Call me up...
