  • She said, "It's just a woman thing"
    And pulled out of the drive
    I said not to worry
    I'm and understanding guy
    I heard that when you love someone

    You gotta let them go
    She hollered, "When I find myself
    You'll be the first to know"
    Ooh hoo no news

    I've learned to do the laundry
    Feed the cat and clean the house
    I promised to be patient
    While she worked her problems out

    When she packed her bags
    Her destination was unclear
    But I sensed that her intentions
    Were honest and sincere
    Ooh hoo no news

    She could telephone, tell a friend
    Tell a lie about where she's been
    Send a pigeon, send a fax
    Write it on a postal pack
    Send a signal up in smoke
    Tap it out in Morse code
    I'd prefer a bad excuse
    To no news

    Her momma's been a little vauge
    As to her whereabouts
    Her sister says, "I'm certain
    Your romance is headed south"

    I don't have a single doubt
    That she's still in love
    My level of anxiety
    Is just a product of
    Ooh hoo no news

    She could telephone, tell a friend
    Tell a lie about where she's been
    Send a pigeon, send a fax
    Write it on a postal pack
    Send a signal up in smoke
    Tap it out in morse code
    I'd prefer a bad excuse

    She missed her bus, missed her plane
    Surely, this can be explained
    Lost her car at the mall
    Got locked in a bathroom stall

    Playing guitar with the band
    On the road with Pearl Jam
    Buried with the Grateful Dead
    Came back as a parrot head

    Got derailed, got de-iced
    Offered as a sacrifice
    FBI, CIA, if they've seen her
    They ain't saying
    No news! Still no news! Oh oh oh Writer/s: Mark Sanders, Phil Barnhart, Sam Hogin
