This here is the place where I will be staying
There isn't a number, you can call the payphone
Let it ring a long long, long long time
If I don't pick up, hang up, call back, let it ring some more
Oh! If I don't pick up, pick up, the sidewinder sleep-sleep-sleeps in a coil

(Chorus:)
Call me when you try to wake her up, Call me when you try to wake her
Call me when you try to wake her up, Call me when you try to wake her
Call me when you try to wake her up, Call me when you try to wake her 

There's scratches all around the coin-slot like a
Heartbeat, baby, trying to wake up
But this machine can only swallow money
You can't play a path by computer design, but just another stupid, stupid sign
Tell her,  Tell her she can kiss my ass and laugh
And say that you were only kidding, that way she'll know
That its really really really really me - me

(Chorus)

Baby this soup doesn't really grab me
Today I need something more sub-stub-sub-substantial
A can of beans, some black-eyed peas, some Nescafe and ice
A candy bar, a falling star, or a reading from Doctor Zeuss

(Chorus)

The Cat in the Hat came back, wrecked a lot of havoc on the way
Always had a smile and a reason to pretend,
Their world's flat backgrounds and little need to sleep but to dream
The sidewinder sleeps-on-his-back

(Chorus)
