Mr. Telephone Man
New Edition 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 611 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'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

She let the phone ring twenty 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
Something's wrong with my line
I thought I dialed her number
But 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
This situation's 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
Something's wrong with my line
I'm trying to dial her number
But 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's 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

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 611 to get a 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'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
She let the phone ring 20 times before she answered
Let me tell you what happen then
A minute later - I got the operator
Saying, "Please hang up and place your call again, Baby"
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
Somethin's wrong with my line
When I dial my baby's number
I get a click every time
Some strange man is on the telephone (The telephone)
Keeps telling me my baby ain't home (That she's not home)
She ain't got no party line
This situation's blowin' 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 though
Would you just check the line
Just one more time if you can
I'm pretty sure my 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 everytime
Mr. Telephone man
Somethin's wrong with my line
I try to dial her number
I get a click everytime
Must be a bad connection
I give 'em all my love and affection (Oh sugar)
I just can't take this no more
This situation blowin' my mind
Can't get my baby on the line
I try dialing information (Mr. Telephone man)
I can't get no cooperation (Mr. Telephone man)
System on the phone
Telling me my baby ain't at home
Ahh baby
I just can't take this anymore
Help me out
Please Mr. Telephone man
Help me out
Please Mr. Telephone man

I only found out about this song a few days ago because someone kept blasting it in the showers of my dorm. Now I can't stop listening to it, it's so upbeat yet the lyrics have a sadness to them that gives the song this balanced melancholic feeling that I love. Honestly, in my opinion it hits pretty similar to some Japanese city pop songs from the time.

Ezekiel Writer

Japanese city pop was highly influenced by popular western songs at the time, which explains the similarities.

I knew I wasn’t the only one who noticed the Japanese city pop vibes T-T

I just found today that a Thai city pop song, 589-3375 by the Innocent, was also influenced by this song. https://youtu.be/mlgG6_3DQeY
