Operatör
Brenda Holloway Lyrics


Operator, operator, I'm so glad that you rang my phone
Operator, operator, I'm so glad that you found me home

I can hear my long gone lover
I've waited such a long long time
So please, operator
Put him on the line, I want him on the line
I want him on the line
I wanna talk to that long gone lover of mine
Operator, operator, there is static in my line
Did he say that his love was true?
Did he say that his love was mine?
Did he say he was coming home?
Did he say where he has been?
I can't hear a word he's saying
If you keep buttin' in, you keep buttin' in
You keep buttin' in
I wanna know if he's comin' home again

It shouldn't take this much time
To clear my line, to ease my mind
Oh operator, please get straight
It's unfair to make me wait any longer
My curiosity is stronger
Don't you know that it's wrong, oh so wrong

Operator, operator, this is very strange
What is the holdup here? Doesn't he have the change?
Oh please operator, if he don't have another dime
Reverse the charge to me
Put him on the line, I want him on the line
I want him on the line
I wanna talk to that long gone lover of mine

I didn't expect him, please connect him right way
I beg of you to put him through without delay

This was my favourite song in 1965. It brings back so many memories. When I hear it I remember people who are passed now but in my memory they are forever young. Thanks so much for posting it

WOW! I love Brenda Holloway and her version of Operator. Don't get me wrong, I love Mary Wells version, but Brenda is tearing it up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lil Peaches Ali

true Brenda's version is much better

David Carpenter

Over the years, Brenda Holloway has become my favorite Motown singer. Live this song!

My co worker sings this all the time and I finally know now who sings this song, along with Mary Wells. Very beautiful.

Van Elrod

Great song by a great artist. As they say, they don't sing songs like this anymore

Cynthia's Channel

What a fantastic song!

jackie bessard

I LOVE TO HEAR MARY WELLS SING THIS SONG, AND BRENDA HOLLOWAY SOUND GOOD, THANK YOU FOR SHARING.

S. Suskie

Love Mary Wells' version too but Brenda sounds sexier on her performance of this great Motown song.  Should have been a much bigger hit.
