  • 6060-842!

    Tina went to the Lady's room
    Saw written on the wall
    "If you'd like a very nice time
    Just give this number a call"

    It was 6060-842
    606 and I'm waitin' for you
    6060-842
    606 and I'm waitin' for you

    Tina reached in her pocketbook
    Pulled out a thin dime
    Dropped it in the phone slot
    Prayin' she'd get the line

    It was 6060-842
    606 and I'm waitin' for you
    6060-842
    606 and I'm waitin' for you

    Dial the number to call
    Get no answer at all
    Dime's in the slot
    Ready to trot

    Uh, 6060-842
    I've been tryin' all day
    And I'm makin' no headway
    Operator, what's wrong?
    I dial stupid number all day long

    Operator said,
    Your number's been disconnected
    Your number's been disconnected
    Your number's been disconnected
    Your number's been disconnected

    Hello?
    I'm sorry
    Hello?
    I'm sorry
    Hello?
    I'm sorry Writer/s: CINDY WILSON, FRED SCHNEIDER, KATE PIERSON, KEITH STRICKLAND, RICKY WILSON
