HELLO CENTRAL, GIVE ME NO MAN'S LAND (Sam M. Lewis / Joe Young / Jean Schwartz) Al Jolson - 1918 Henry Burr - 1918 When the gray shadows creep And the world is asleep In the still of the night Baby climbs down a flight First she looks all around Without making a sound Then baby toddles up to the telephone And whispers in a baby tone Hello, Central, give me No Man's Land My Daddy's there, my Mama told me She tip-toed off to bed After my prayers were said Don't ring when you get the number Or you'll disturb Mama's slumber I'm afraid to stand here at the 'phone 'Cause I'm alone So won't you hurry I want to know why Mama starts to weep When I say, "Now I lay me down to sleep" Hello, Central, give me No Man's Land Hello, Central, give me No Man's Land My Daddy's there, my Mama told me She tip-toed off to bed After my prayers were said Don't ring when you get the number Or you'll disturb Mama's slumber I'm afraid to stand here at the 'phone 'Cause I'm alone So won't you hurry I want to know why Mama starts to weep When I say, "Now I lay me down to sleep" Hello, Central, give me No Man's Land (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2012)
