The phone in my ear

THE PHONE IN MY EAR

 

I’ve a phone in my ear

that never stops ringing

When I finally get to sleep I dream

I’ve a phone in my ear

that never stops ringing

‘cause I really have a phone in my ear

that never stops ringing

 

I can’t change my phone number

I don’t know what it is

I can’t answer the call

the phone’s in my ear

it’s not in my mouth it is in my ear

 

Who’s trying to call me I have never met

For when I was born

the phone was already there, in my ear

ringing, ringing, ringing

 

Tomorrow I will have a surgery, and remove it

I’ll never know who is calling but I sure need

a good night sleep
