Mr. Telephone Man, there's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number, I get a click everytime
Mr. Telephone Man, there's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number, I get a click every time

When I dial 611, computer service
She said, "Hello, may I help you, please?"
I told her something must be wrong with my phone
'Cause my baby wouldn't hang up on me

Mr. Telephone Man, there's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number, I get a click everytime
Mr. Telephone Man, there's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number, I get a click every time

She let the phone ring 20 times before she answered
Let me tell you what happened then
A minute later I got the operator saying, "Please hang up
And place your call again", baby

Mr. Telephone Man, there's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number, I get a click everytime
Mr. Telephone Man, something's wrong with my line
I try to dial her number, but I get a click everytime

Some strange man is on the telephone
He keeps telling me, my baby ain't home
She ain't got no party line, the situation's blowing my mind
Oh, I just can't take this anymore

Please operator, see what you can do
I dialed the right number but I still couldn't get through
Could you just check the line just one more time if you can
I'm pretty sure her phone wouldn't be answered by no man

Mr. Telephone Man, there's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number, I get a click everytime
Mr. Telephone Man, something's wrong with my line
I try to dial her number, but I get a click everytime

Must be a bad connection, I give her my love and affection
I just can't take this no more
This situation's blowing my mind
Can't get my baby on the line

I tried dialing information, Mr. Telephone Man
I can't get no coperation, Mr. Telephone Man
Her sister's on the phone telling me my baby ain't at home
Come on, baby, I just can't take it anymore

Help me out
Please, Mr. Telephone Man
Help me out
Please, Mr. Telephone Man
