[Verse 1]
Long-distance operator
Place this call, it’s not for fun
Long-distance operator
Please, place this call, you know it’s not for fun
I gotta get a message to my baby
You know, she’s not just anyone

[Verse 2]
There are thousands in the phone booth
Thousands at the gate
There are thousands in the phone booth
Thousands at the gate
Everybody wants to make a long-distance call
But you know they’re just gonna have to wait

[Verse 3]
If a call comes from Louisiana
Please, let it ride
If a call comes from Louisiana
Please, let it ride
This phone booth’s on fire
It’s getting hot inside

[Verse 4]
Everybody wants to be my friend
But nobody wants to get higher
Everybody wants to be my friend
But nobody wants to get higher
Long-distance operator
I believe I’m strangling’ on this telephone wire
