Bobby Darin

If a Man Answers

 


 
 
      If a man answers your phone when I call
      Ooh … there's gonna be some screamin' 
      And that ain't all
      'cause if I'm here callin' you
      Then who's the who I'm talkin' to?
      
      Why any fool could see
      That for sure it ain't me
      So, if a man answers your phone 
      Then, honey we're through!
 
      Now … everything between us used to be fine
      Till I became a third party
      Where there ain't no party line
      Ya hear me talkin' …
 
      Gonna hang this phone up now and dial again
      Ooh … and there better be a soprano 
      On the other end
      'cause if the voice is baritone
      When you told me you'd be home alone.
 
      Well … then I'm wastin' my time
      A-not to mention my dime
      So, if a man answers your phone 
      Then, honey I'm gone!

 

      Now … everything between us used to be fine

      Till I became a third party

      Where there ain’t no party line

      Ya hear me talkin’ …

 

      Gonna hang this phone up now and dial again

      Ooooh … and there better be a soprano

      On the other end

      ‘cause if the voice is baritone

      When you told me you’d be home alone.

 

      Well … I’m  wastin’ my time

      Not to mention my dime

      So, if a man answers your phone

      Then, honey I’m gone!
