She's really cooling the heat, I feel it going on down
Down, down, down, get on down, down, down
I hear the telephone ring and that's the worst kind of sound
Sad sound, sound, I hate that sad sound

I had the lights down low, I had the key to the lock
But it's all over I know, because that girl loves to talk
She starts that yacky yack yack'n, talk
rap rap rap rap'n, talk
I may as well go and watch TV, 'cuz she just...
ch ch ch ch ch ch .. talk

We had the place to ourselves, there was no one around
Round round round, aint no one around
But it's a party line, it's true that three is a crowd
Down down down, she gets me so down

I brought her flowers and such,
I gave it just the right touch
This conversations too much,
Oooh that girl loves to talk
she starts that yacky yack yack'n, talk
rap rap rap rap'n, talk
I may as well go and watch TV, cause she just...
Operator got to break the line, line
It's been four hours and the girl won't stop
She tells me Mr. maybe some other time, cause
I'm listening in and this gossip is hot

I hear her saying goodbye and that's the best kind of news
News, news, news, real good news
She's sweetly calling my name, I lose those telephone blues
Blue, blue, blue, telephone blues

But it's too good to be true, true
She doesn't answer my knock
Another call's coming through and that girl has gotta talk
she starts that yacky yack yack'n, talk
rap rap rap rap'n, talk
Another twenty four hours, talk
And that sweet love is back to sour, talk
She starts that rap rap rap rap'n, talk
Yack, yack, yack, yack'n, talk
