Lyrics: Ring Ring

Ring Ring

Tyst och död är telefon
Står där nästan som ett hån
Inte ringer du och säger älskling nu som du gjorde
Allting är så tyst mot förr
Ingen knackar på min dörr
Det som lockat mig frestar inte, nej, som det borde

Inget roar mig just nu
Ingen annan bara du

Ring ring, bara du slog en signal
Ring ring, tystnaden är så total
Ring ring, skingra den oron som mal
Om jag fick en signal, tog jag ett språng
Hjärtat gjorde en volt, ding-dong bing-bong
Om du ring--ring--ringde en endaste gång
Om du ring--ring--ringde en endaste gång

Att en telefon kan va'
Lika tyst varenda dag
Om det vore så, det var nåt fel ändå, men dessvärre
Om den bara sa ett knyst
Om den inte blott var tyst
Om jag fick nån lön för nån enda bön av vår Herre

Inget roar mig just nu
Ingen annan bara du

Ring ring, bara du slog en signal
Ring ring, tystnaden är så total
Ring ring, skingra den oron som mal
Om jag fick en signal, tog jag ett språng
Hjärtat gjorde en volt, ding-dong bing-bong
Om du ring--ring--ringde en endaste gång
Om du ring--ring--ringde en endаѕte gång

Ring Ring

I was sitting by the phone
I was waiting all alone
Baby by myself I sit and wait
And wonder about you
It's a dark and dreary night
Seems like nothing's going right
Won't you tell me honey
How can I go on here without you?

Yes I'm down and feeling blue
And I don't know what to do, oh-oh

Ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all
Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall
And I sit all alone impatiently
Won't you please understand the need in me?
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?

You were here and now you're gone
Hey did I do something wrong?
I just can't believe that
I could be so badly mistaken
Was it me or was it you?
Tell me, are we really through?
Won't you hear me cry?
And you will know that my heart is breaking

Please forgive and then forget
Or maybe darling better yet, oh-oh

Ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
Ring, ring, the happiest sound of them all
Ring, ring, I stare at the phone on the wall
And I sit all alone impatiently
Won't you please underѕtand the need in me?
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?

So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
Oh-oh, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
So, ring, ring, why don't you give me a call?
Oh-oh, ring, ring, why don't you give me a cаll?
