Hello, operator. Can you give me number nine?
Can I see you later? Will you give me back my dime?
Turn the oscillator, twist it with a dollar bill,
Mailman, bring the paper, leave it on my windowsill.

Find a canary, a bird to bring my message home.
Carry my obituary, my coffin doesn’t have a phone.
How you gonna get the money? Send papers to an empty home?
How you gonna get the money? Nobody to answer the phone.
