Billy Walker ~ Thank You For Calling Lyrics

Who can it be hello hello
Yes this is me darling oh darling
What a surprise it’s been so long
Why there’s tears in my eyes

When will you be here what time will it be
Oh you’re not coming I see oh I see
Well I hope you’ll be happy well thank you I’ll try
Thank you for calling goodbye

Yes operator I’ll hang up the phone
Yes yes I know my party is gone
But I’ll always love her I guess till I die
Thank you for calling goodbye
