[Girl] Hello! [Claude] Say listen your mummy is she home? Please tell her there’s somebody on the telephone. [Girl] Ah you the man who phoned before, she’s in the bath I'll call her through the door,but she can’t come to the phone I’m sure. [Claude] Ask her to please me, tell her it’s quite important just go and see. [Girl] Say you want something from my mamma Each time she hears you ring, she says "shhh tell him I'm not in". [Claude] But tell me are you enjoying school? Now I suppose you’re learning the golden rule. [Girl] Oh yes, schools a little way away Because mummy works a neighbour takes me there each day Cometimes a friends daddy calls for me Cos I’m the one with no daddy you see. [Claude] Oh tell her it’s been long Six years of loneliness that’s how old you are I guess. [Girl] Oh no, I’m five no more But you must have known my mummy before, She never told me your name though, hold on don’t go. [Claude] Tears on the telephone, I cry pretending Her voice is kissing mine as we make love along the line Tears on the telephone, my dream is ending Though not so long ago, she loved me so. [Claude] In summer you’ll go to St Tropez The same old Grand Hotel there, do you swim each day? [Girl] Oh yes, I’m a good swimmer, I love the sand as well But tell me how do you know about the Grand Hotel? When did you stay at St Tropez? [Claude] Oh tell her I need you, I love the two of you, yes the two of you. [Girl] Love us two, I’ve never set eyes on you, is there something wrong? You’re talking differently, oh don’t cry don’t cry. [Claude] Tears on the telephone, I cry pretending Her voice is kissing mine as we make love along the line Tears on the telephone, my dream is ending Though not so long ago she loved me so, I didn’t mean to cry Tears on the telephone but it’s goodbye now For I’ll be on a flight leaving tonight. [Claude] Oh do try again now. [Girl] But she’s leaving [Claude] Please try to stop her. [Girl] I can’t she’s gone. [Claude] Well if she’s gone then, I’ll say goodbye. [Girl] Goodbye mister. [Claude] Goodbye little one.
