Silent Tree Music - Song Lyrics
( Funny Jewish mother compaint song lyrics )
YOU DIDN'T RETURN MY CALL
Copyright © 2009 - MickTerry.com
On YouTube, performed LIVE by MICK TERRY
( Jewish mother )
There's the phone. It's just sitting,
so black, so silent, so still.
All alone, I'm just knitting
with nothing left but time to kill.
Wooden clock on the sculpted mantle,
barely even moves its hands.
YOU DIDN'T RETURN MY CALL,
so I had to assume you must be dead.
YOU DIDN'T RETURN MY CALL.
What else am I to think instead?
There's the phone. It's still sitting.
Still black, still silent, still still.
You're not home. You're now living
with that floozie who lives down the hill.
Wooden clock on the sculpted mantle.
What's a mother 'sposed to do?
What on earth were you thinking?
You know I'm prone to worry and fret.
You're enough to get me drinking.
You might just be the death of me yet.
There's the phone. Still not ringing.
It's been three hours-. What's wrong?
All alone, I'm still waiting.
Must you torture me to wait so long?
How many sons just to change a light bulb?
None. I'll just sit here in the dark.
