ELO - Telephone line
Tekst en muziek: Jeff Lynne
(1976)






Hello, how are you
Have you been alright
Through all those lonely, lonely, lonely
Lonely, lonely nights
That’s what I’d say, I’d tell you everything
If you’d pick up that telephone, yeah, yeah, yeah



Hey, how you feelin’
Are you still the same
Don’t you realize the things we did, we did
Were all for real, not a dream
I just can’t believe, they’ve all faded out of view
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oo oo oo oo



Doo wop
Dooby doo doo wop
Doo wah doo lang
Blue days, black nights
Doo wah doo lang



I look into the sky
Your luck ain’t really gonna see you through
And I wonder why
The little things are fin’ly comin’ true



Oh, oh telephone line
Give me some time
I’m living in twilight
Oh, oh telephone line
Give me some time
I’m living in twilight



Okay, so no one’s answering
Well, can’t you just let it ring
A little longer, longer, longer
Ohoh ohohohoh
I’ll just sit tight through shadows of the night
Let it ring for ever more
Ohohoh, yeah yeah yeah



Doo wop
Dooby doo doo wop
Doo wah doo lang
Blue days, black nights
Doo wah doo lang



I look into the sky
Your luck ain’t really gonna see you through
And I wonder why
The little things are fin’ly comin’ true



Oh, oh telephone line
Give me some time
I’m living in twilight
Oh, oh telephone line
Give me some time
I’m living in twilight



Oh, oh telephone line
Give me some time
I’m living in twilight
Oh, oh telephone line
Give me some time
