Lolly – Telephone Boy lyrics

Hum ha hum hum, hum ha hum ha hum ha hum ha (etc)
Oh pick up the phone, pick up the phone
I'm waiting, argh, hello, pick up the phone
I ring and ring but can't get through
What's a girl supposed to do
My telephone boy
I dial and dial but get that tone
I wish that he'd get off the phone
My telephone boy


So I call the operator - he says to try him later
My telephone boy
I think that it's such an outrage
That he is always engaged
My telephone boy


Telephone boy, telephone boy, telephone boy
He's my telephone boy
La la la la la la (repeat x4)
So I try your mobile phone
The message says try you at home
My telephone boy
And when I finally get through
I get a machine instead of you
My telephone boy

(repeat *)

He tells me to call but it's always engaged
I've tried and I've tried and I still can't get through
Oh get off the phone
I'm waiting
Get off the phone, get off the phone

(repeat chorus to fade)
