[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.
