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

Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's busy

 

Too busy to come to the phone

 

Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's trying

 

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 forty cents more

 

For the next three minutes

 

Please,

Mrs. Avery,

I just gotta talk to her

 

I'll only keep her awhile

 

Please,

Mrs. Avery,

I just want to tell her goodbye

 

Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's packing

 

She's gonna be leaving today

 

Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's marrying

 

A fella down Galveston way

 

Sylvia's mother says please don't say nothing

 

To make her start crying and stay

 

And the operator says forty cents more

 

For the next three minutes

 

Please,

Mrs. Avery,

I just gotta talk to her

 

I'll only keep her awhile

 

Please,

Mrs. Avery,

I just want to tell her goodbye

 

Sylvia's mother says Sylvia's hurrying

 

She's catching the nine o'clock train

 

Sylvia's mother says take your umbrella

 

'Cause,

Sylvie,

it's starting to rain

 

And Sylvia's mother says thank you for calling

 

And,

sir,

won't you call back again?

 

And the operator says forty cents more

 

For the next three minutes

 

Please,

Mrs. Avery,

I just gotta talk to her

 

I'll only keep her awhile

 

Please,

Mrs. Avery,

I just want to tell her goodbye

 

Tell her goodbye

 

Please,

 

tell her goodbye
