Mr. Telephone Man
Bobby Brown Lyrics


Mr. Telephone man
There's something wrong with my line,
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click every time
Mr. Telephone Man
There's something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click every time

When I dial 661 Computer Service
She said "Hello may I help you
Please?"
I told her something must be wrong
With my phone
Cause my baby wouldn't hang up
On me

Mr. Telephone Man
There something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number I get a
Click every time

Mr. Telephone Man
There something wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number I get a
Click every time

She let the phone ring 20 times
Before she answered
Let me tell you what happened then
A minute later I got the operator
Saying please hang up and place
Your call again

Mr. Telephone Man
There's something wrong with
My line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click every time
Mr. Telephone Man,
Soemthing's wrong with my line
I try to dial her number
I get a click every time

Some strange man is on the
Telephone
He keeps telling me my baby
Ain't home
She got no party line
Situation blowing my mind
Oh, I just can't take this anymore

Please operator
See what you can do,
I dialed the right number
But I still couldn't get through
Could you just check the line
Just one more time if you can
I'm pretty sure her phone
Wouldn't be answered by no man

Mr. Telephone Man
There's something wrong with
My line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click every time
Mr. Telephone Man,
Soemthing's wrong with my line
I try to dial her number
I get a click every time

Must be a bad connection
I give her my love and affection
I just can't take this no more
This situation blowing my mind
Blowing my mind
Can't get my baby on the line

I tried dialing information (Mr. Telephone Man)
I can't get no cooperation (Mr. Telephone Man)
Her sister's on the phone telling me my baby
Ain't at home
Come on baby I just can't take it no more

Help me out
Please Mr. Telephone Man
Help me out
Please Mr. Telephone Man

If we are going to tell the story let's tell the truth.. you are trying to make it seem like Bobby Brown had a fantastic career as a solo artist and David Ruffin was complete trash... This is certainly not true... Need the facts ???

Bobby Brown is ranked #142 all time in R&B record sales..
° He had two #1 Albums

1988 ..Don't be cruel
1992.. Bobby
° Bobby Brown had one other top 10 R&B Album.
1989. Dance..ya know it

David Ruffin is ranked #143 in R&B record sales..
°David Ruffin had one #1 Album
1969.. My whole world ended
° David Ruffin had a total of three top 10 R&B Albums..
1969.. My whole world ended
1970.. Feelin Good
1975.. Who am I ?

But you are making it seem like Bobby Brown was a God and David Ruffin was just some tramp who got fired from the Temptations for not being able to hold a note.. but in reality Ruffin's issues were always related substance abuse... He did two stints in federal prison system because of it...

David Ruffin was a better crooner, but Bobby Brown was a better performer ?? Really ?

There is nothing that Bobby Brown could do better than David Ruffin... Ruffin was at his best on stage performing... That has to be one of the funniest things I've heard in a long long time... 😂😂

You might need to go back and do a little research on the Temptations sir ..



Mr Right

@willie williams David Ruffin had a extremely successful solo career.. perhaps you have not heard of some of these songs.

° My whole world ended the moment you left me.
° walk away from love.
° Break my heart
° Slow dance
° one last kiss
° statue of a fool.

That's two top 5 R&B hits. I know those songs are a bit removed from today.. but if you actually look at his career you will see that his record sales surpass what Bobby Brown did in his solo career..

° Girlfriend
° Roni
° my prerogative
° don't be cruel
° humpin around.
° every little step I take.

Talent wise there is nobody who thinks that Bobby Brown is anywhere close to David Ruffin

David Ruffin is one of the top 3 or 4 male vocalist in the history of R&B music.. when you start talking about the Mt Rushmore of R&B David Ruffin is on it

Marvin Gaye
David Ruffin
Marvin Junior
Ronald Isley

Then everyone else...

Or what about Lakesides' Fantastic Voyage and it was Parodied as Come On & Sign For My Fantastic Mortgage! If it were up to me the Next Boy Band who comes along (especially in The UK who are created like assembly lines like Girlbands) should watch these performances. It's so hard to believe that 2022 will mark their 40th as the 60th of The Temptations and 20th of Girls Aloud who are the most successful Group to come of Reality TV of all time. They were the "First" Boyband for the Video era who kicked the door open for every Boy Band that came after them UK/US.
