Hello, this is Joannie, I'm sorry but I'm not home
But if you leave me your name and number
I promise, soon as I get in I'll phone

Joannie, came over to my house last night
I drank a little too much red and we got into a fight
She said I'm leavin' and I let her go alone
I felt so damn bad this morning, I reached right for the phone
And called her right away, to beg her to forgive
The phone rang once, the phone rang twice
And then I heard her say-hey

Hello, this is Joannie, I'm sorry but I'm not home
But if you leave me your name and number
I promise, soon as I get in I'll phone

Joannie, I'm sorry and I'm feelin' oh so small
That was the message that I left and I waited for her call
I waited with a sinkin' feeling in my heart
Not knowin' if she'd forgive me was tearin' me apart
I couldn't go on this way, I had to call again
The phone rang once, the phone rang twice
And then I heard her say-hey

Hello, this is Joannie, I'm sorry but I'm not home
But if you leave me your name and number
I promise, soon as I get in I'll phone

My phone rang and my heart sang, my baby's called at last
Instead it was a friend who said that Joannie's car had crashed
I never should've let her drive home angry from my place
I'd never hold her again and kiss that funny face
But still there was a way to hear her voice again
The phone rang once, the phone rang twice
And then I heard her say-hey

Hello, this is Joannie, I'm sorry but I'm not home
(I'm so sorry Joannie)
But if you leave me your name and number
I promise, soon as I get in I'll phone
(Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Hello, this is Joannie, I'm sorry but I'm not home
But if you leave me your name and number
I promise, soon as I get in I'll phone
