A-singin' do lolly, lolly, shicky do, shicky do
Wednesday at three I called the phone company, singin'
Hey, baby, put a phone in for me
Thursday at four he came a-knockin' at my door, singin'
Hey, baby, I'm your telephone man
You just show me where you want it and I'll put it where I can
I can put it in the bedroom, I can put it in the hall
I can put it in the bathroom, I can hang it on the wall
You can have it with a buzz, you can have it with a ring
And if you really want it you can have a ding-a-ling
Because, a hey, baby, I'm your telephone man
