Don't Forget to Wait for the Tone

(Pat Robinson, Dick Holler)



Friends say I'm lookin' fine
It only takes a little time
Everybody sees the lines between the creases

They know not to mention her name
Things are just about the same
But when I hear the telephone ring, I go to pieces

BRIDGE #1
She's the only one I wanna talk to
But I'm afraid of what she's gonna say

CHORUS #1
Hey you know I'm not at home
But I'll get right back, just leave your name and number
Wait until you hear the tone
As a matter of fact, I'll be here alone
Don't forget to wait for the tone

I'm tryin' not to let it show
I want to, but I don't want to know
My heart's just been put on hold, and I'm hangin'

Every time I hear the phone
I'm hopin' that she'll come on home
If I knew she was gonna stay gone, I'd let it keep ringin'

BRIDGE #2
And I'd let that phone ring on forever
So she could never tell me goodbye

CHORUS #1

CHORUS #2
Hey you know I'm not at home
But I'll get right back, just leave your name and number
Wait until you hear the tone
As a matter of fact, I'll be here alone
Don't forget to hurry on home
