THE TELEPHONE SONG
Astrud Gilberto (with Stan Getz)
Buzz! Buzz! Line is busy every time that I call
Buzz! He’s the longest talker I’ve ever known
Buzz! Buzz! I’ve been trying hard to reach him all day
Buzz! When I get him I’ll forget what to say
Should I call the operator
Is the number that he gave me my own?
Buzz! Buzz! I’ve been sitting here and dialling all day
Buzz! Got to get him and there must be a way
Buzz! Buzz! If you heard the way he begged me to call
Buzz! You could never understand it at all
When I met him he was quiet
But now we long to talků..
Buzz! Buzz! Think I’m going to give up, can’t stand it anymore
Buzz!Buzz! Have decided that this romance is through -
Can it be true, that it is ringing?
I can’t believe it!
Wait till I say Hello!
