Lyrics

Verse I

Why do I sit home waiting for the phone?
Waiting for the phone to ring that ting a-ling-a ling-a ling
I've given up most everything
Waiting for the phone to ring
My ego really feels the sting
I should go out an have a fling
Instead of sitting here to sing
Those wasting time telephone blues.

Verse II

Well finally it rings and my heart takes wings
But when I pick it up I hear a voice I wasn't' waiting for
Now I'm hurting all the more
Can't take this heartache anymore
I'm heading for the swiging door
Cause sitting here is such a bore
I used to have a life before these wasting time telephone blues.

Chorus
A ting-a ling a ling
A ring-a ling a ling
A ting-a ling a ling
A ring a ling a ling
I'm sitting here dialing up the telephone blues.

Upbeat and catchy melody. Good for film...

Very cool song, love the tempo, great arrangement and instrumentation. very catchy, foot tappin' tune

Fun tune i really like the vocals and the hook the instrumentals are very good and the mix is very good
