Artist: Dr. Hook
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's busy,
too busy to come to the phone.
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's tryin'
to start a new life of her own.
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's happy,
so why don't you leave her alone?
And the operator says "Fourty cents more
for the next three minutes"
Please, Missus Avery, I just gotta talk to her,
I only keep her a while.
Please, Missus Avery, I just want to tell her goodbye.
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's packin',
she's gonna be leavin' today.
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's marryin'
a fellow down Galveston way.
Sylvia's mother says "Please don't say nothin'
to make her start cryin' and stay."
And the operator says "Fourty cents more...
Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's hurryin',
she's catchin' the nine o'clock train.
Sylvia's mother says: "Take your umbrella,
'cause Sylvie, it's startin' to rain.
And Sylvia's mother says "Thank you for callin',
and Sir, won't you call back again?"
And the operator says "Fourty cents more..."
