  • I was sitting by the phone
    I was waiting all alone
    Baby by myself I sit and wait and wonder about you
    It's a dark and dreary night
    Seems like nothing's going right
    Won't you tell me honey how can I go on here without you?

    Yes I'm down and feeling blue
    And I don't know what to do, oh-oh

    Ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
    Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all
    Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall
    And I sit all alone impatiently
    Won't you please understand the need in me
    So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
    So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?

    You were here and now you're gone
    Hey did I do something wrong?
    I just can't believe that I could be so badly mistaken
    Was it me or was it you?
    Tell me, are we really through?
    Won't you hear me cry and you will know that my heart is breaking

    Please forgive and then forget
    Or maybe darling better yet, oh-oh

    Ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
    Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all
    Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall
    And I sit all alone impatiently
    Won't you please understand the need in me
    So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
    So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
    Oh-oh, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
    So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call? Writer/s: EDGAR HOEFLER, KENNETH D. LEWIS, MARTE ANDERSON
