The Telephone Song

IT'S JUST TOO MUCH.
YES, IT'S JUST TOO MUCH.
MY TELEPHONE RINGS AT 2 & 4.
2 & 4 & SOMETIMES MORE
AND IT'S JUST TOO MUCH.
THAT AIN'T WHAT MY TELEPHONE IS FOR.
NO, THAT AIN'T WHAT MY TELEPHONE IS FOR.

SO DON'T CALL ME
IF ALL YOU WANNA DO
IS HAVE A PITY PARTY....WOE IS ME....WOE IS ME....
NO.NO.NO.DON'T CALL ME!
AND DON'T CALL ME
IF ALL YOU WANNA DO
IS CRITICIZE YOUR FRIENDS & FAMILY....
NO.NO.NO.DON'T CALL ME
'CAUSE THAT AIN'T WHAT MY TELEPHONE IS FOR.
NO, THAT AIN'T WHAT MY TELEPHONE IS FOR!
BUT:
IF YOU NEED A PRAYER...
THEN GIVE ME A CALL
'CAUSE THAT'S WHY I'M THERE.
MY TELEPHONE....IS A TOOL OF SERVICE.
IT IS NOT.....A WEAPON.....
WHAT IS YOUR.....TELEPHONE...TO YOU?
IS IT A WEAPON........OR A TOOL OF SERVICE?
IF IT IS A WEAPON...........IT'S JUST TOO MUCH.........
BUT:
IF YOU NEED A PRAYER.......
THEN GIVE ME A CALL.....
AND IF YOU NEED A FRIEND....
THEN GIVE ME A CALL.....
'CAUSE THAT'S WHY I'M THERE...
AND THAT'S WHAT MY TELEPHONE IS FOR!
YES, THAT'S WHAT MY TELEPHONE IS FOR!!
RING......RING......RING......!
