Operator, operator, I'm so glad that you rang my phone Operator, operator, I'm so glad that you found me home I can hear my long gone lover I've waited such a long long time So please, operator Put him on the line, I want him on the line I want him on the line I wanna talk to that long gone lover of mine Operator, operator, there is static in my line Did he say that his love was true? Did he say that his love was mine? Did he say he was coming home? Did he say where he has been? I can't hear a word he's saying If you keep buttin' in, you keep buttin' in You keep buttin' in I wanna know if he's comin' home again It shouldn't take this much time To clear my line, to ease my mind Oh operator, please get straight It's unfair to make me wait any longer My curiosity is stronger Don't you know that it's wrong, oh so wrong Operator, operator, this is very strange What is the holdup here? Doesn't he have the change? Oh please operator, if he don't have another dime Reverse the charge to me Put him on the line, I want him on the line I want him on the line I wanna talk to that long gone lover of mine I didn't expect him, please connect him right way I beg of you to put him through without delay
