Operator (That's Not the Way It Feels) Lyrics

Operator - Jim Croce

Operator well could you help me place this call

 

See the number on the matchbook is old and faded

 

She's living in la with my best old ex-friend ray

 

A guy she said she knew well and sometimes hated

 

Isn't that the way they say it goes well let's forget all that

And give me the number if you can find it

So I can call just to tell 'em I'm fine and to show

 

I've overcome the blow I've learned to take it well

I only wish my words could just convince myself

That it just wasn't real but that's not the way it feels

 

Operator well could you help me place this call

 

Well I can't read the number that you just gave me

 

There's something in my eyes you know it happens every time

 

I think about a love that I thought would save me

 

Isn't that the way they say it goes well let's forget all that

 

And give me the number if you can find it

So I can call just to tell 'em I'm fine and to show

 

I've overcome the blow I've learned to take it well

I only wish my words could just convince myself

That it just wasn't real but that's not the way it feels

 

No no no no - that's not the way it feels

 

Operator well let's forget about this call

 

There's no one there I really wanted to talk to

 

Thank you for your time ah you've been so much more than kind

 

And you can keep the dime

 

Isn't that the way they say it goes well let's forget all that

And give me the number if you can find it

So I can call just to tell 'em I'm fine and to show

 

I've overcome the blow I've learned to take it well

I only wish my words could just convince myself

 

That it just wasn't real but that's not the way it feels
