Lady Gaga – Telephone lyrics

Hello, hello baby you called?
I can't hear a thing
I have got no service
In the club, you see, see
Wha-Wha-What did you say,
Oh, you're breaking up on me
Sorry, I cannot hear you
I'm kinda busy.

K-kinda busy
K-kinda busy
Sorry, I cannot hear you, I'm kinda busy.

Just a second,
It's my favorite song they're gonna play
And I cannot text you with
A drink in my hand, eh
You should've made some plans with me,
You knew that I was free.
And now you won't stop calling me;
I'm kinda busy.

Stop callin', stop callin',
I don't wanna think anymore!
I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.
Stop callin', stop callin',
I don't wanna talk anymore!
I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
Stop telephonin' me!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
I'm busy!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
Stop telephonin' me!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

You can call all you want,
But there's no one home,
And you're not gonna reach my telephone!
Cuz I'm out in the club,
And I'm sippin' that bubb,
And you're not gonna reach my telephone!

Call when you want,
But there's no one home,
And you're not gonna reach my telephone!
Cuz I'm out in the club,
And I'm sippin' that bubb,
And you're not gonna reach my telephone!

Beyonce:

Boy, the way you blowin' up my phone
Won't make me leave no faster.
Put my coat no faster,
Leave my girls no faster.
I shoulda left my phone at home,
'Cause this is a disaster!
Callin' like a collector -
Sorry, I cannot answer!

Not that I don't like you,
I'm just at a party.
And I am sick and tired
Of my phone are-ringing.

Beyonce:

Sometimes I feel like
I live in Grand Central Station.
Tonight I'm not takin' no calls,
'Cause I'll be dancin'.

'Cause I'll be dancin'
'Cause I'll be dancin'
Tonight I'm not takin' no calls, 'cause I'll be dancin'!

Stop callin', stop callin',
I don't wanna think anymore!
I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.
Stop callin', stop callin',
I don't wanna talk anymore!
I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.

Stop callin', stop callin',
I don't wanna think anymore!
I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.
Stop callin', stop callin',
I don't wanna talk anymore!
I left my head and my heart on the dance floor.

Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
Stop telephonin' me!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
I'm busy!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh
Stop telephonin' me!
Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh

Can call all you want,
But there's no one home,
You're not gonna reach my telephone!
'Cause I'm out in the club,
And I'm sippin' that bubb,
And you're not gonna reach my telephone!

Call when you want,
But there's no one home,
And you're not gonna reach my telephone!
'Cause I'm out in the club,
And I'm sippin' that bubb,
And you're not gonna reach my telephone!

My telephone!
M-m-my telephone!
'Cause I'm out in the club,
And I'm sippin' that bubb,
And you're not gonna reach my telephone!

My telephone!
M-m-my telephone!
'Cause I'm out in the club,
And I'm sippin' that bubb,
And you're not gonna reach my telephone!

    Know what? I think Gaga didn't intend the video to be like that. There should be a reason why the video was kinda, er, like that. I assume it's because of her intersexual rumors. First, if you would look at the video, she shows her (censored) really often. And there was a part when the policewoman said, "I told you she didn't have a (censored)". So, yeah, I guess that's it. She wanted to erase the beliefs of her fans that she has a (censored). Lol.

    Me 23 you need to back off. So do you cicigurl209 dark also has the right to say what she wants. And no nobody feels bad for Beyonce look at all that awards she's won. That's success not pity. And the only hoe would be Rihanna for being the "other" women not Beyonce or Lady Gaga. Now tell me I don't have a right of sayin this. I want you too. I have the right of an opinion too. I love this song. That's what I orignally was goin to say but poeple are so f* rude now in days.

    Ok some people don't like the song and some people do like the song that is totally up to them. So telling them what to do id a waste of your time. And me 23 you are totally right but then again its smiley13 that needs to worry about being cheated on cuz that b*h wont ever do anything about it. If it was me the girl who he cheated on me with would get her a* kicked but smiley13 to me seems like a gurly gurl and will always be like that so just let her be a side dish while we are the main meal lol that's a weird way to put it but yo know what I mean :))

    I like the song very much. I think it means if you're gay, straight, or bi- it don't matter, as long as your happy with who you are yourself, don't care how others think you, just love yourself! I'm bi, and I don't care if others do know or what they think!

    Lady gaga is too hot of an item to think that you can put her on the back burner and try to holler at her later if your other plans fall through. The song is just saying that you have to capitalize on what is good, when it's good, because if you sit waiting around for something better, what is good is definitely not going to wait around for you.

    When the track first begins, you can't really tell it's Lady Gaga. Certainly, she sounds very different in this song. And I actually like it. It's probably her best song, lyrically and musically. It's more of a love song than her usual topic. (You know what I mean.) And Beyonce just adds to it. Suprisingly good, well done!
    (It's about a girl who is annoyed at the boy and wants the boy to stop calling her and leave her alone.)
