(Somebody)
Told her that there was a place like heaven
Across the water on a 747
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world

And pretty soon she's really got the notion
Of flying out across the big blue ocean
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
(In a modern world)

Talk is cheap on satellite
But all I get is
(Static)
Information, I'm still here
Re-dial on automatic

Calling America
(Can't get a message through)
Calling America
(That's what she said to do)
Calling America
(That's where she has to be)
Calling America
(She left a number for me)
Calling America

But I'm just talking to a satellite
Twenty thousand miles up in the sky each night
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world

All I had to do was pick up the phone
I'm out in space, trying to talk to someone
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world
(In a modern world)

She left a number I could call
But no one's there, no one at all
There must be something going wrong
That number just rings on and on

Calling America
(Can't get a message through)
Calling America
(That's what she said to do)
Calling America
(That's where she has to be)
Calling America
(She left a number for me)
Calling America

Said she'd call when she'd been gone a while
Guess she's missing me across the miles
Yeah, we're living in
In a modern world

Calling America
(Can't get a message through)
Calling America
(That's what she said to do)
Calling America
(That's where she has to be)
Calling America
(She left a number for me)

Calling America
Calling America
Calling America
