You can call me any old time.

You don’t need any reason or rhyme,

'Cause I’m not busy, I’m talkin’.

Drop me a post card send me a line-

You don’t need any obvious sign

Cause I’m not willing.

I’m anxious, you can call me-

I’m sure to be home, I’m not busy,

It’s just the phone.

I took my problem to the United Nations.

I said, "I’m shallow," I don’t care about your confrontations.

What I care about is: I’m lonely every night.

I’m not picky, I’m not particular.

My house is messy, it ain’t immaculate.

I’m not avanté-garde, I’m simple.
