I Do What the Telephone Tells Me To Do
--Fred Tackett, Paul Barrere & Bill Payne

Wake up, and have a cup
Turn on the t.v. … read the paper
Cause I know someone’s calling me up
Waitin’ for the phone to ring
Get me up and do my thing
Cause I do what the telephone tells me to do
That’s the truth dog
Just a waitin’ on you

Cause I do what the telephone tells me to do
Hey fool maybe you do too
Everybody’s got a telephone ringin’
Everybody got a telephone singin’

So whets new, whets swinging
Whets goin’ on where your phones ringin’
I hear your friends are way too lazy
Is waking up at Wal-Mart making you crazy
If you looking for action
Pure satisfaction
Well I do what the telephone tells me to do
Here’s my number call me up and I’ll
Do it with you

Cause I do what the telephone tells me to do
Hey fool maybe you do too
Everybody’s got a telephone ringin’
Everybody got a telephone singin’

Ya tell me yeah, ya tell me no
Always telling me where to go
Sitting’ here and the phone starts to ring
Feelin’ good the way it pulls my string
When I get tired of all the talk
Go outside and take a walk
Locked in a cell with old ma belle
Sometimes things just don’t go so well

Cause I do what the telephone tells me to do
Hey fool maybe you do too
Everybody’s got a telephone ringin’
Everybody got a telephone singin’
