Calling America

Electric Light Orchestra

Somebody told her that there was a place like heaven
across the water on a 747
Yeah we're living in, in a modern world

and pretty soon she's really got the notion
of flying out across the big blue ocean
Yeah we're living in, in a modern world

talk is cheap on satellite, but all I get is static
information, I'm still here, redial on automatic

Calling America, can't get a message through
Calling America, that's what she said to do
Calling America, that's where she has to be
Calling America, she left a number for me
Calling America

But I'm just talking to a satellite
twenty thousand miles up in the sky each night
Yeah we're living in, in a modern world

All I had to do was pick up the phone
I'm out in space trying to talk to someone
Yeah we're living in, in a modern world

She left a number I could call
but no one's there, no one at all
there must be something going wrong
that number just rings on and on

Calling America, can't get a message through
Calling America, that's what she said to do
Calling America, that's where she has to be
Calling America, she left a number for me
Calling America

Said she'd call when she'd been gone a while
guess she's missing me across the miles
yeah we're living in, in a modern world

Calling America, can't get a message through
Calling America, that's what she said to do
Calling America, that's where she has to be
Calling America, she left a number for me
Calling America
