Telephone Man

(Wilson)

-Peaked at #18 in 1977 and was her only hit
-Sold over a million copies
-A `novelty` song
-Produced by Boomer Castleman and Jim Rutledge of `Bloodrock`

I went to my apartment on a Monday at one
A-singin` do lolly, lolly shicky bum, shicky bum
Started movin` in it on a Tuesday at two
A-singin` do lolly, lolly shicky do, shicky do
Wednesday at three I called the phone company, singin`:
`Hey baby, put a phone in for me`
Thursday at four he came a-knockin` at my door, singin`:

`Hey, baby, I`m your telephone man
You just show me where you want it and I`ll put it where I can
I can put it in the bedroom, I can put it in the hall
I can put it in the bathroom, I can hang it on the wall
You can have it with a buzz, you can have it with a ring
And if you really want it you can have a ding-a-ling
Because-a hey baby, I`m your telephone man`

Can you believe that? And then he says:

`Now when other fellas call ya tell `em how it all began`

Well...can you imagine?

My heart began a-thumpin` and my mind began to fly
And I knew I wasn`t dealin` with no ordinary guy
So while he was a-talking I was thinkin` up my plan
Then my fingers did the walkin` on the telephone man

Singin` hey lolly, lolly
Hey lolly, lolly
Hey lolly, lolly
Get it any way you can
Right? Ha ha ha, so...

I got it in the bedroom, and I got it in the hall
And I got it in the bathroom, and he hung it on the wall
I got it with a buzz, and I got it with a ring
And when he told me what my number was I got a ding-a-ling

A-singin` hey lolly, lolly
Hey lolly, lolly
Hey lolly, lolly
Just-a doin` my thing

Ha, ha...I`ve never done anything like this before!

From: `David Hayman`
