The telephone, the telephone
I have an idea
Women always have ideas
Hello
Here is Agamemnon
Here is Agamemnon

And now I am done for
Darling, where shall I
Hide you in a hurry?
Here is Agamemnon
Here is Agamemnon
I am coming
Directly from the trenches
And look forward 
To a solemn luncheon
Oh, my nerves
I'm losing my find
This damned telephone
Spoils my favorite position
And no I can start
Writing poetry again
