Scabs – Telephone Line lyrics

Once in a while I don't feel that fine
I've got this feeling that they call the blues
I know it's time to call the hot line
I'm begging Candy, give me the news
I said shake shake shake your hips
You know that I'm nearly dying
I said break break break my ribs
And run your fingers down my spine
[Chorus:] Baby it's time to run outta line
Gimme a sign that the next move is mine
Baby it's time! Run outta line!
Cimme you sign by the phone line baby!
When I was blue it was a quarter to twoand then I started to run out of dimes
Baby come fast I said, before I blast
She said hold it right there just draw the blinds
I said shake shake, don't you brake
You know it would almost be a crime
I said break break what a quake!
Can I take you from behind
You know this is my sign to run outta
Gimme a sign that the next move is
Baby it's time! Run outta line
Gimme your sign by the phone line
Telephone line!
Touch my spine
On my sign
Baby I'm dying
By the telephone line
This is my sign to run outta line
You can be mine all of the time
Touch my spine, on my sign, baby I'm dying by the
Phone line baby!
