Hanging On The Telephone

They put me on hold. The music on the telephone is loudly playing some syntho-jazz-redo of a Christmas song from my early childhood which I cannot identify for the life of me. Now it's gone. Damn!

This isn't it.

I'm in the phone booth, it's the one across the hall
If you don't answer, I'll just ring it off the wall
I know he's there, but I just had to call

Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

I heard your mother now she's going out the door
Did she go to work or just go to the store
All those things she said, I told you to ignore

Oh why can't we talk again
Oh why can't we talk again
Oh why can't we talk again
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

It's good to hear your voice, you know it's been so long
If I don't get your call then everything goes wrong
I want to tell you something you've known all along
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

I had to interrupt and stop this conversation
Your voice across the line gives me a strange sensation
I'd like to talk when I can show you my affection

Oh I can't control myself
Oh I can't control myself
Oh I can't control myself
Don't leave me hanging on the telephone

Hang up and run to me
Whoah, hang up and run to me
Whoah, hang up and run to me
Whoah, hang up and run to me
Whoah oh oh oh run to me

Oh wow. Blondie!!! I love Blondie's music. Thanks for shaking some memories loose from the cobwebs. :)

I really have a big problem with music (any kind of sound really) being played while I'm on hold. How presumptuous to assume you know what music I like. I glad you were able to make the best of it.
