Sylvia's Mother Lyrics

 

Sylvia's Mother - Dr. Hook/The Medicine Show

(《冰血暴 第二季》电视剧插曲)

Written by:Shel Silverstein

 

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'40 cents more for the next 3 minutes'

 

Please mrs avery I just gotta talk to her

 

I'll only keep her a while

 

Please mrs avery I just wanna tell 'er goodbye

 

Sylvia's mother says 'sylvia's packin'

 

She's gonna be leavin' today'

 

Sylvia's mother says 'sylvia's marryin'

 

A fella down galveston way'

 

Sylvia's mother says 'please don't say nothin'

 

To make her start cryin' and stay'

 

And the operator says'40 cents more for the next 3 minutes'

 

Please mrs avery I just gotta talk to her

 

I'll only keep her a while

 

Please mrs avery I just wanna tell 'er goodbye

 

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'40 cents more for the next 3 minutes'

 

Please mrs avery I just gotta talk to her

 

I'll only keep her a while

 

Please mrs avery I just wanna tell 'er goodbye

 

Tell her goodbye

 

Please

 

 

Tell her goodbye
